Barbara Broccoli recalls 'distressing' meeting with Amy Winehouse

01-Oct-2022 • Bond News

Speaking to EW about the upcoming documentary 'The Sounds of 007,' James Bond producer Barbara Broccoli recalled a meeting she had with Amy Winehouse when they were eyeing her to write and perform the title song for the film that would become 'Quantum of Solace.'

"Well, that was a very very distressing meeting, she was not at her best and my heart really went out to her," said Broccoli.

"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."
