James Bond Producer Recalls Sad 2008 Meeting With Amy Winehouse

The James Bond movie franchise is known as much for its action and adventure as it is for its timeless, signature theme songs.

In a recently published (9.30) interview with Entertainment Weekly, longtime producer Barbara Broccoli discussed Amazon Prime’s new documentary The Sound of 007 – which explores the decades-long making of the James Bond themes throughout the years – and she shed a specific light on the Amy Winehouse theme song that never came to be.

In advance of the 2008 Quantum of Solace, Broccoli recalled meeting with Winehouse to create a theme for the latest 007 sequel, but due to the singer’s emotional state at the time, the song never cane to pass.

“Well, that was a very very distressing meeting. She was not at her best and my heart really went out to her,” Barbara told EW. “She was very fragile emotionally and, you know, you understood how she could create such moving material, because she has a great depth of feeling and it was very very tragic. What an incredible talent, what an incredible voice, what an incredible person she was and it was very very sad.”

In 2008, the same year Quantum of Solace was released, Winehouse won five Grammy Awards for her work on her sophomore LP Back to Black, including best new artist and song and record of the year for “Rehab.”

At the age of 27, Amy Winehouse died in July 2011 of an alcohol overdose.
