Nice piece, Chris. Amy was the star of the 21st century. I remember an awards show where she sang “Rehab,” and the cameras, at one point, panned to Beyonce and Madonna. If they didn’t realize they were miles behind Amy, they should have. No artist singing today — including Adele — comes close, and that’s saying a lot. Like the others in the “27 Club,” they’re here for a limited time and, thank God, we have albums that demonstrate their creativity and their power.
