Quote Of The Day: Portishead's Geoff Barrow Didn't Like Amy Winehouse's Voice

"I think Adele sings in her own voice. Whereas, I think Whiney Shitehouse — Amy Winehouse, by the end of it, had just become a comic character of herself and how she sang. I saw her with an electric guitar in a little pub in Bristol and people were going 'that's amazing,' but it wasn't at all. Then she had the big drug problem and all the tabloids got involved and she would start being Minnie Riperton 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." — Geoff Barrow, on why he didn't like Winehouse's voice. [via Spinner]
