Tony Bennett Talks Amy Winehouse’s Death and Whe He Courld Have Done:

Bennett talks about his relationship with Amy Winehouse in his book Just Getting Started (out Tuesday, November 16th). In it he writes about how he questions what he could have done to prevent her death.

“Should I have told her that I’d contended a little bit with drugs and alcohol myself and knew how you can fall into a bad cycle, but I also knew that you could bring yourself back? Would it have made a difference if someone she considered an idol had said to her something like, ‘You’re my idol. You are a once-in-a-lifetime talent. Please don’t take that from the world… Walk away from it all, if you like. Just live. Please’.”
