It was to be expected, oddly enough, but still...

So weird. Yesterday was my last day at work before I start three weeks holidays and even though I should have been chomping at the bit to get out of there, I stayed about 30 minutes longer - watching Amy Winehose videos on YouTube. The last ones I watched were the ones from Belgrade and the last thought I had before turning out the lights in my office was "I don't think she is going to be one of the ones that makes it out." It was a sad and regretful thought because I thought the absolute world of her talent. I wonder what the posthumous releases will be like. She was working on an album for a few years.

You've got to wonder about her management. Who sent her out on that last tour so clearly unprepared for the work and the pressure? Again, it's just immensely sad for her, for fans, for her family and for music.

What a fucked up day this has been. The crap that went down in Norway. Now Amy? :(
Guess she joined the 27 club.

The Belgrado thing? Yeah, what a trainwreck that was lol.

Take two druggies - Winehouse and Doherty.  One of them talented, the other one not.

The talented one dies, the other one is probably going to live to 90.  Fuuuuck.

People who think Ozzy is alive should really get their own vital signs checked.

you say "talented" but she only released 2 albums and the last one was 5 years ago,the rest of the time she lived off her fame getting shit faced every day and being arrested.some people would actually say she was a "waster" and not as wonderful as she led us to believe.
its not as if she's left a musical legacy behind like other members of the "27 club",not in my eyes anyway..one successful album doesnt make a career..

Amazing how many people with no knowledge of addiction and mental illness are so quick to celebrate the death of a 27 year old woman with an amazing talent.

Could be your daughter one day...

"you say "talented" but..."

But, she was.  Don't get me wrong; I'm not going to try and sandwich her into some top 20 of amazing artists - it's a big world with a lot of music in it.  She was one talented lady, but we all know damned well what drugs can do to creativity.  (Hello, Jimmy Page!)

"some people would actually say she was a "waster" and not as wonderful as she led us to believe."

You don't have to be a good person to be talented.

"one successful album doesnt make a career.. "

Sure it does - a very short career, mind you.  (Hello, Jeff Buckley!)

Horrible. I was shocked when I heard the news, but not surprised. While I do think she was extremely talented (Joxer, the Sex Pistols released one less studio album than Whinehouse), I was however not at all surprised that she died. Which in some ways makes it all the more tragic; over the past few years the public was watching her self-destruct, knowing that death was extremely likely. RIP

This is sad news but spare a thought for those who are left behind. Hundreds, if not thousands, of North London drug dealers have just lost their biggest customer. I wouldn't be surprised if Columbia's economy collapses in the next few days.

Man! This is a real shocker,I just found the news on yahoo. I never have listened to her music before,but she was such a beauty,it's a terrible waste.

And at 27? Man,how terribly sad.
RIP Amy.
