Amy Winehouse's Father: Blake Is A Low-life Scumbag
In the book, he writes "All the songs, apart from Rehab, are about Blake. One of the biggest albums of the 20th century is all about the biggest low-life scumbag that God ever put breath into." He is unreserved in his dislike of Blake, saying "Blake didn't kill her, but he still bears responsibility. He still makes me more than angry, going on about how Amy took to drugs 'like a duck to water'." Mitch adds that Amy's death was made all the harder to take because he believed that she was on the road to recovery. "(Amy) had quit drugs and was on the road to abstinence," said Mitch. "Had she passed away in 2007, well, she was so sick then. But she survived that, got better, all of which makes her death so tough."
Mitch has also explained that writing the book has helped him to come to terms with Amy's death. "Besides helping me with my recovery, I wanted to put a spotlight on the Amy Winehouse and to set the record straight" about Amy's death, he said. All proceeds from sales of the book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
