Amy Winehouse: 6 stories from 'Amy, My Daughter' by Mitch Winehouse

Singer Amy Winehouse's father shares memories in his new book "Amy, My Daughter."

3. True life in 'Rehab'


Winehouse says that during 2004, he and others became worried about Amy's drinking habits and gathered to talk about it. "The subject of rehab came up – the first time that anyone had mentioned it," he wrote of the discussion. "I was against it. I thought she'd just had one too many this time, and rehab seemed an overreaction. 'I think she's fine,' I told everyone." Amy Winehouse later turned the reaction into a line in her song "Rehab" – "My daddy thinks I'm fine." Winehouse later changed his stance and Amy Winehouse went to a rehabilitation facility.
