Amy Winehouse Has Died

Post by SonjaMarie » Sat July 23rd, 2011, 6:10 pm

She was found in her London home dead at 27. No cause of death released yet, but knowing her background, I'd be surprised if it wasn't drug related.

I wasn't a fan of her music, but it's always a waste when someone talented dies at a young age.

May she rest in peace.

She was a very troubled girl. It all points to it being drug related. Very sad news - I thought she had a wonderful voice.

No big surprise here. She refused to go to rehab so she paid.

And two of them were born in or around Seattle (Kurt and Jimi).

Janis Joplin
Her mother's name is Janis! Yeah, very sad. Apparently she did a song about refusing to go to rehab. I suspect they'll be playing that video several times.

A lot of musicians died at that age. I suppose that's what the headlines are referring to when the mention the "27 club." A sad loss for her fans and family. So much talent gone.

Such a loss. "Back to Black" is an almost-perfect CD. One of my favorites.
Amy was a very troubled soul - I hope she has found peace.

It looks as though Amy drank herself to death:
