Itâ€™s exactly three years since Amy Winehouse tragically passed away due to alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.
AsÂ family, friends and legions of fans mourn her untimely death, there has been a flicker of new insight on the singer, in the form of a previously unpublished interview.
The interview was conducted in 2004 by freelance journalist John Marrs on behalf of a weekend magazine.
It was four months since Amyâ€™s debut album Frank had been released, and although it had reached number 13 in the charts, the magazineâ€™s editor ultimately decided Amy wouldnâ€™t amount to much and chose not to run the interview. We bet theyâ€™re feeling pretty foolish right now.
