London - Accusations that unscrupulous relatives are cashing in on the dead singer's legacy have seen the cancellation of Wednesday's 28th birthday memorial gig at Chalk Farm's Roundhouse.

Organised by former drinking mates at Camden Lock's Whorely Arms the tribute concert was to have showcased an Amy retrospective from her early barfly singalong daze (sic) to the pub's now defunct karaoke machine.

However an eleventh hour injunction has stopped the show from going ahead after Winehouse family members claimed legal authority over all her intellectual property frights.

"That includes amateur video footage of a largely unpublicised, drug/drink-fuelled 2001 rendition of 'YMCA'," a copyright litigation expert warned today, "and derivatives thereof."

The move coincides with a music industry makeover to cast Winehouse as a tragic Billie Holliday-style talent, despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary.

"Amy was white, Jewish and not racially oppressed," former Whorely drinking pal Margarita Chaser told Rolling Stoned magazine today.

"The family's had a damn good run for her money and now they want more.

"Wanna see pix of her and Blake barfing up outside a Mornington Crescent McDonalds?"

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
