I have two as well. The 1st time I saw her was on Leno or something....which I never watch, but all of a sudden I see her doing the song rehab.
It was one of those moments where you sit back and go DAMN!. that musics got kick...got soul...got rythm...got blues. just DAMN!
never anythig after that until her death hit the news, and I listen a bit more on yourtube. bought two albums an wore them out.
you can definitely hear the drug references in her songs, and the best one Back to Black was written by her in her binge times with the ex loser....
but so much of the GREAT music by people or bands was written in their "haze" days of their careers.
