“The moment I got out of the car, I knew something was wrong,” Moby explained. “From backstage, I could hear the audience booing louder than the music.”
Moby then watched Amy’s performance from the side of the stage and recalled, “Amy was just standing there, swaying back and forth and mumbling occasionally. The band were playing quietly and looking uncomfortable, and the audience was looking on in disbelief.”
“She was onstage for about 30 minutes. Then she left and was lying down on a flight case backstage surrounded by some people,” Moby added. “I was horrified.”

“not many people have it in them to do something they love, simply because they love it. with no fuss and no compromise. but she knew what she was capable of and didn’t even need to try. if she wanted to do something she would and if she didn’t she’d say fuck off. it came easy to her and that’s why we all loved her so much. we believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about british music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing.”
