    sure its a waste and all that talent lost but I find it hard to get really upset given she (and true I am ASSUMING she died due to her abuse of chemicals-if someone whacked her then I apologize) croaks herself

    I loved Garcia's music but he brought his death on himself too
    I don't get why people don't understand this.

    She did have a pre-existing illness. The same kind of illness that TONS of artistically and intellectually gifted people have - a mental one. Multiple mental illnesses, in fact. And it predates any of her substance abuse problems. In fact, since mental illness has a tendency to, you know, impair ones mental functioning, it is probably the cause of her substance abuse problems. And of course, addiction is in and of itself an illness.

    Nobody says to themselves "today I'm going to develop a heroin/crack habit that will destroy me." There's a lot more nuance to it than that. And people who want to stone her, and people who suffer from these problems in general, have no appreciation of that nuance. They're a bit thick. Or at least they haven't thought enough of it to have anything worth saying on the matter.

    GF railroad's "We're an American band" makes reference to Sweet sweet connie who apparently was a legendary groupie in terms of all the rock stars she boinked
    There's an x-groupie who made a documentary about groupies from the 60's and 70's. I think her name is Pamela DesBarres. In the documentary, there's a segment about Connie and her pal, who were known as The Plaster Casters. They made casts of all the rockstars. Her apt is filled with "knick-knacks". Connie is still at it.

    BBC News - Amy Winehouse found dead, aged 27

    Her Back to Black album was one of the best recordings of the past decade, but it seems that psychological demons and addictions got the best of her. I'm very sad at this news. She gave a lot of people a great deal of pleasure.
    Another celebrity I've never heard of until they die.

    She made her bed, and now she lies in it.

    See, if I ate nothing but McDonald's my whole life and died of a heart attack, are you going to be surprised? Hell no. Are you going to be sad? Perhaps. It depends, really. You going to think I was a fool for living that way that lead me to this death? You better; I wasn't wise.

    She had money. Poor people have escaped addiction. If she cared, with her money she could have pulled herself out of it.

    So you know how she died? Did not think so and even if she did die from addiction no need to be a jerk. Addiction is a disease and I bet if she had cancer you would not be such a non-caring person

    You are forgetting that not everyone is alike. Some people are more prone to addiction than others.
