Amy Winehouse To Be Honoured With Camden Memorial, Early Images Unveiled


Camden Roundhouse are set to pay tribute to late music star Amy Winehouse by unveiling a memorial of the singer, to be officially revealed in 2014.

The statue has been designed by London artist Scott Eaton and when finished, is set to be on display on the first floor terrace of the Camden Roundhouse overlooking Chalk Farm Road.

Eaton has been commissioned by The Amy Winehouse Foundation and the Roundhouse Trust to create the sculpture and it shows the singer, who died in 2011, posing beneath her trademark beehive hairdo.

Eaton posted a message on his official website: "As part of the planning application for the proposed Amy Winehouse Memorial we submitted a selection of images of my work-in-progress digital maquette."

"There is much more work to do on the piece, but for application purposes it is a good representation of the scale and the gesture of the sculpture. The memorial is planned as a life-sized bronze to be installed on the first floor terrace of the Roundhouse in Camden."

The Love Is A Losing Game singer was a regular at the Camden venue and even marked her last public appearance there as she performed on July 20th 2011.

According to the planning application, the aims of the statue are pay tribute to an "iconic artist at the heart of the Camden music scene, to be enjoyed by local residents, fans and visitors to Camden town."

Winehouse is also set to be honoured at the Walk of Fame in Camden later this year, with 30 discs to be laid down, each one honouring a different international musical figure.

Music promoter Lee Bennett told the BBC recently, "We hope this will be the highest accolade in music. This is an international brand not specific to Camden, but it is in Camden as we truly see it as the world's rock and roll capital."
