Not exactly unexpected, but still incredibly sad. She has been slated on this board before but she really was one of the very best and most talented singer songwriters the UK has produced.

Re: Amy Winehouse

Unbelievable raw talent. I was expecting a big come back any time. It isn't easy to make this salty liquid drip out of my eyes. What a waste.

I know first hand the dangers of addiction. Too bad she couldn't make recovery work for her.

Re: Amy Winehouse

Any recommendations for other artists who made music in that style? My wife and I really enjoyed her music.

Re: Amy Winehouse

What is it about musicians dying at age 27? Hendrix, Morrison, Joplin, Cobain, Winehouse....
You beat me to it...Beiderbeck & Parker too.
Absolutely tragic but somehow endemic to music...does this talent come at a price?

Although the Norway disaster is absolutely horrible, a victim of this disease called addiction is not excluded from my compassion.
My thoughts exactly.

Re: Amy Winehouse

Nobody really wants to be a drug addict, junkie in the end. Ditto alcoholism.

I just think that for certain people that it's just not easy to quit, in many cases impossible. That's part of the addiction.

Rip to a very troubled talented soul.

Re: Amy Winehouse

I play 'rehab' nearly every time I pull out my sax, and it tends to be my goto song if someone asks to hear me play. In fact I was just about to pull out my horn so I'll be playing it in a few minutes as well.

Re: Amy Winehouse

i don't think any other modern soul singer had so much soul and style. That video (posted a few comments up) from the Jooles Holland show shows what she could have been. It was just effortless for her, that doesn't happen very often.

Re: Amy Winehouse

She had fascinating vocal style.
Appealing inflection in curious bends and shapes, with mastery in the base.
