I'm sure she'll sell many more records now she's dead including her unreleased new record she just finished.

Sad.
She certainly doesn't deserve to be listed among that company. Hendrix was on a different planet for talent to Whinehouse.

[QUOTE=bono_212;7298504]The publicity. It was her image, and it was the reason I could never let myself listen to her music. I just felt like she was exploiting it and even more so the record company or her people or whatever were exploiting her. [QUOTE]

Same with me. It was her image that overshadowed her talent. A talent that I only knew existed in the last 24 hours.

The amount of publicity she got a couple of years ago made me sick to my stomach from human degradation.

It would have been great if the music stood as tall as the image.

I understand the enabler aspect to her surrondings. Its not cool.

However, If I were in her immediate circle or family I would feel 'cheated' by her. All the shit they had to go through on a personal level with her. I actually feel for her ex-husband this weekend.

By your definition ie on a level with Hendrix, neither does Kurt Cobain or many of the others listed in the wikipedia article.

She was a talented Grammy-winning musician who died at 27. She "deserves" to be listed, sadly.

Hendrix is one of the most overrated musicians in the history of dying before you get old

Yeah true neither does Cobain. Although I don't think anyone deserves to be listed alongside Hendrix. A complete genius!

As for whineyhouse, she was waaaaay overated. Although her death will do wonders for her career.

And with that, his opinion was rendered moot

Unlike Cobain, I don't think Hendrix had necessarily peaked. Commercially, anyway.

Yeah, who knows what Hendrix would have done. The guy was already playing many musical styles before he was born, and while we can go back and forth on whether Electric Ladyland was his best, it was certainly the most ambitious and showed he was capable of doing anything next.

JT, you're out of your element.
