Amy Winehouse will be awarded the first placement on London's Music Walk of Fame on what would have been her 30th birthday. The honor will be bestowed on the tragic singer when the attraction, similar to the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, is launched in September, according to NME magazine.
Organizers announced earlier this month that they have been given the green light to honor the world's top music legends with sidewalk tributes in the London borough of Camden, where dozens of the U.K.'s biggest acts got their starts. Bands including The Clash, Oasis, Blur, Madness, and The Libertines all have strong links to the area and are expected to be honored at the site, but it is Winehouse -- who lived in Camden until her death in 2011 -- whose name will be the first to be set in stone.
A paving slab containing an imitation vinyl record printed with the words "Amy Winehouse, London, England - Icon" will be unveiled on Sept. 14, the date of Winehouse's 30th birthday. Organizer Lee Bennett says, "One of the reasons we chose Camden is because it's a living and breathing music community and its venues and musicians are what inspired the idea."
Are you kidding me!!!! Have they not heard of the Beatles, Rolling Stones or Queen for Gods stakes. She didn't add anything to music but overdosing on drugs and booze and everything else. I think she see the last person to choose for the first person for there music row.
