As we all know by now Amy Winehouse was pronounced dead yesterday at 3:54pm after her body was found in her flat. It is no news to any of us that the 27-year old singer was troubled, battling a drink and drug addiction from early on in her career but it was a shock to everyone when the news came round.
Whether it was coincidental or deliberate we are still in the dark as no post mortem examinations have been made. Amy now joins the rest of the 27 club who include; Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Brian Jones, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.
A sad day for music she will always be remembered for her soulful voice and extraordinary talent. Any loss is a tragedy and every loss deserves respect. May she finally rest in peace. Our thoughts go out to all her fans, friends and family.
