London: Portishead’s Geoff Barrow has ridiculed tragic singer Amy Winehouse, saying that she had a fake voice.
“I think Whiney Shitehouse – Amy Winehouse – by the end of it, had become just a comic character of herself and how she sang,” the Mirror quoted him as telling music blog Electronic Beats.
“I saw her with an electric guitar in a little pub in Bristol and people were going ‘that’s amazing’ but it wasn’t all that.
“Then she had the big drug problem and all the tabloids got involved and she would start being Minnie Ripperton or whatever it was. It seemed fake, but because there was a massive drug problem you couldn’t say it was fake, but her actual voice was fake. She had a real life with a fake voice,” he added.
