AMY WINEHOUSE DIES-REHAB NO MORE

AMY WINEHOUSE DIES AT 27British singing sensation Amy Winehouse was found dead today.  At age 27 she joins a tragic list of legends, who like herself struggled with drug and alcohol addiction.   Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, & Jimi Hendrix all died of overdoses at 27.  Kurt Cobain committed suicide at 27.  Winehouse's death is likely to be ruled an overdose, but it was also a suicide.  How else can you describe actions so reckless?  While Winehouse had a voice that set her apart from most female performers of her generation, however it was her very public addiction to drugs and alcohol that stole the spotlight as her fame grew.   Her last performance earlier this month in Serbia was a disaster, with Winehouse being booed off the stage.

Winehouse's sexy style became as famous as her voice right from the beginning.   A mix of Bettie Page "kitten with a whip" overt sexiness, with a dose of grunge thrown in to cool it off.   Her style influenced fans and fashion designers around the world.  She can be credited with bringing back the big hairstyles ala the 50's and 60's.  (MTV Media monster Snooki is sure to have copied the style).

It is a sad day for music, and humanity.  That someone would allow themselves to destroy a life so rewarded seems unbelievable.    Someone could have, and those close to her should have helped.  

It seems her BACK TO BLACK  album will be the last we remember her for.   The songs were destined to be classics, but with her overdose Amy made sure it happened even faster.   Her most famous song to date was ironically titled Rehab.     Click the Album cover here to visit itunes now.  I know I'll be listening to all the songs again now myself.
