Winehouse's dad will write memoir

Her memory won't be sent back to rehab, no no no.

Earlier today, Amy Winehouse's father, Mitch Winehouse, announced he's in the midst of writing a memoir about his late daughter and her tragic life.

Here's what JTA reported:

Mitch's book will be called “Amy, My Daughter” and will be released by HarperCollins next summer, according to E! Online.
Father and daughter were tight throughout her life. In fact, Amy had “Daddy’s Girl” tattooed on her body.
Winehouse promises that the book will include childhood stories and anecdotes that preceded the singer's meteoric rise to fame, as well her well-documented struggles with addiction.

“I feel the need to write this book to tell the true story of Amy and to help with my personal recovery,” he explained.

The profits from the sale of the book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was started in the singer’s memory to help disadvantaged children and young adults.
Promises to be an interesting read.
