LONDON.- Following the untimely and tragic passing of Amy Winehouse, Proud Camden celebrates her life with an exhibition of portraits of musicians whose passing was untimely and tragic. Proud Camden presents The Day the Music Died, a look back at the musicians that have made a significant cultural impact and whose lives were tragically short-lived.

Including a portrait of Amy Winehouse by photographer Mattia Zoppellaro as well as the other celebrated members of the Forever 27 Club: Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin, and going right back to the death of Buddy Holly in 1959; all the musicians featured in the exhibition have made a significant contribution to the history of popular music. For the first time Proud Galleries will exhibit portraits of musical greats such as Michael Jackson, Janis Joplin and Syd Barrett, whose impact has been profound in each of their different musical spheres.

Including iconic portraits of some of the most important musicians from the 20th Century by the most eminent music photographers including: Freddie Mercury by Peter Hince, Joe Strummer by Steve Double, John Lennon by Tom Hanley, Phil Lynott by Ian Dickson and Jeff Buckley by Merri Cyr. This exhibition is a memorial to the artists who have shaped the sounds we listen to and love today; the artists whose contributions have given birth to and shaped movements like punk (Vicious), rock & roll (Jones), grunge (Cobain), psychedlic rock (Hendrix), folk (Drake) and psychedelic folk (Barratt), to name but a few. Immortalised by the greatest music photographers, this exhibition is a chance to pay tribute to these musicians whose influence has been so significant and whose lives were sadly cut short.
