    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.
    I found her music moribrund and contemptuous. I wasn't a fan and I like all sorts of music - in fact there's very little I don't like. Personal tastes perhaps... and certainly a reflection on one's short life - but really.... this wasn't forseen? @phattonez "Always shocking".... really? I posted this story almost the same time as Andalublue... I characterize it as shocking as: "Fat man found with jelly donut".
    I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on whats being proposed here, hed agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute. - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.

    It's sad. She was so incredibly talented. The talented ones always leave us too soon.

    I wasn't really a fan of her music, but I hope she was able to find peace before she died. Many people who abuse drugs and alcohol have deep depression or emotional issues. We can only speculate some of the things she was going through, but I do hope that she found peace. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse.

    I will miss Amy Winehouse's music, which was awesome! Like so many other young singers, she died a tragic death. Her demons got the best of her.

    At age 27, yeah it is. Most of the other people on Club 27 died of alcohol/drugs, and those were all shocking as well.

    I'm quite envious of my little sister who got to see her Tonight Show performance live. I'm typically not a fan of that type of music, but she just had a voice that you couldn't ignore. I wasn't really a Winehouse fan, but I did love "Rehab".

    I just don't have a ton of sympathy for people like this.

    Yeah she had a great talent.

    But as a person I doubt I would have wanted to deal with her.

    One time working on a music video the entire production was held up for hours. Because the lead singer of the band met a chick the night before and dropped acid with her. And I just thought to myself, "you little dumbass punk. Not only are you screwing up an opportunity most people just dream of you are also screwing with all our (the production crew) lives and wasting a ton of money."

    Well, not ALL of the talented ones leave us too soon, thankfully.
