Amy Winehouse Found Dead

Amy Winehouse

You may have seen this coming. I must admit that the news came to me with little surprise.   Amy Winehouse was found dead, in her house, this weekend.

Everyone seems to be hailing her as a rare talent. This is probably true. Also true (and sad) is the apparent fact that all of her fame and fortune didn't seem to bring her much happiness. She will be remembered for her music. We will likely hear more of her music now that she is no longer with us, That's what happened with Jimi Hendricks, Jim Croce and Janis Joplin, just to name a few.

Also, it has been noted that other notable singers who, troubled with addiction, went on to "meet their maker" at the age of 27.  Those would include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.
