Amy was very tense with Tony, one of her idols. "We love you very much," she told the singer as she reached the studio. "I will not cry," Amy said as he touched her hands. "I will not cry". And he said that he grew up with Bennett and Sinatra, his father's favorites.
She apologized for being nervous, saying it was the first time she'd been in a studio in a long time. McCormick then asked what it was like to return, and Amy said, "It's good to be in a studio with Tony. He's the only reason I'm here. "
Amy and Tony sang side by side, over and over, and each time there was something new. Bennett exhibited the calm of his 85 years. Amy was biting her sleeves, staring at her feet, at the ceiling, everywhere except for his studio colleague. "I hear Tony's voice right next door and it's so much to me that I can not look up and see Tony's person as well. It may sound silly, but it's difficult. "
"I'm my worst critic," she said. "If I do not let go of what I think I'd like to do, I would not be a happy girl." Amy also revealed that the stage was a difficult place for her: "I was not born on stage. I was born to sing, but I'm rather shy, actually. "
Amy also talked about the desire to study music. "I would love to study guitar or trumpet. I can play a little of several instruments, but I do not play any good. Playing an instrument makes you sing better. The more you play, the better you sing, the more you sing, the better you play. " In March, Amy was thinking about the future. At the end of the recording with Tony, she was happy, laughing loudly. "This is a story to tell my grandchildren so they can tell their grandchildren to make sure they will tell their own grandchildren." And Tony said, "Tell your father I said hello." She said, "He's going to cry. He's going to cry. "
Amy's last interview was not about drugs, rehab, scandals or tour issues. It was a conversation about music and about what it was like for Amy to be on stage. And it reveals the brittleness and sensitivity of the British singer - which the press often left aside by portraying only their vices. (Amy's interview with music critic Neil McCormick of the British newspaper The Telegraph, March 2011).
