that stat is not that spooky if one considers all the factors involved

more surprising is that Keith Richards, Lou Reed and Iggy Pop made into their senior years, and they are not even on life support.

She was a big talent. But yeah, the writing was on the wall if you consider all the problems she'd have. Terrible shame. But in terms of her legacy, she's immortal now. That wouldn't have been the case if she had gone from rehab clinic to rehab clinic to rehab clinic through her thirties while her music declined (which seemed pretty much inevitable).

‪The 27 Club trailer‬‏ - YouTube

GVOX, see the trailer with Bonos daughter.

It is a shame when anyone dies. But really, she jammed more living into those 27 years than many of us will ever do. SO WTF?

It always seemed she didn't have one ounce of class either.

It's sad to see such a great talent go to waste, but in truth it had to be expected, considering her troubled lifestyle. She was very sick, drugs basically destroying her physically. It's tragic, she was so young, but self-destruction and addiction were stronger than her talent.

I don't think it's very glorious to die before you reach 30, even if some people try to keep this stupid rock'n'roll myth alive.

I guess if you count stumbling around in a heroin induced stupor as 'jamming in the living' then you would be right.

Was she really talented? I never really listened to her stuff. I always assumed since she was so overexposed that she had no talent. (I am not trying to be insensitive here, I just don't know)

she was incredibly talented, but, sadly, incredibly messed up

You should check out the album Back to Black. If I was making best of the year lists back then, it would be right up there. It's fantastic. She was definitely more talented than all these other trollops running around

neil_mccormick Neil McCormick

Deeply disturbed to hear of death of Amy Winehouse. Saw her in the studio this summer, looking good & singing beautifully. She was a talent.


Neil McCormick seems to think she was talented. He is critical enough for me.

RIP Amy.
