The Sad Passing of Amy Winehouse

It was sad to read that Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment overnight.

She had become the butt of the jokes of many comedians in recent years, but it is very sad that a girl with so much talent could not control her addictions to drink and drugs and should pass so young.

She joins a stellar crowd of famous rock musicians who died at 27 that includes Rolling Stones founding member Brian Jones, guitarist Jimi Hendrix, singer Janis JoplinThe Doors lead singer Jim Morrison and Nirvana front man Kurt Cobain. The age that they passed was not the only thing that they had in common, they all suffered with drug abuse too.

Anyone who thinks that drug use is romantic should compare these two clips of Amy, and look at the toll that drugs take, let alone losing your life at 27 and missing out on so much that life has to offer. And in Amy‘s case the music she could have given the world

That is just so sad, look at the expression on the face of the backing singer who is trying to help her.

Well Amy I hope you rest in peace now, we all know you should have gone to rehab and stuck it out. But for many people that road to addiction leads to only one place and they find it impossible to turn off.

The girl really knew how to sing a jazz standard and did some of her best work with Jools Holland.
