    According to a BBC report, she had recently finished a rehab course so may have made the classic mistake of taking a dose that she would have been used to before her treatment.
    It truly is a sad story and a path in life that is filled with nightmares, yet to perform with such talent and yet subdue to the heroin beast while performing is truly telling. That said, the monkey on Amy's back did eventually win, lastly being addicted to heroin is a life sentence.

    I'm not sure where all these comments of "talent" are coming from. I only heard snippets, but I never heard anything amazing. It's like Lady Gaga. No, not talented, just hyped. Anyway, live fast and die young.

    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 only ever heard one song, the one she refused to go to treatment in. What a waste.

    My heart goes out to her parents and all others who truly loved her, just for being Amy.

    If you think Lady Gaga is hyped and not talented, then you either don't know talent, or you don't know lady GaGa.

    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    What would be surprising is if her death had nothing to do with drugs, alcohol or suicide.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Different tastes.
    That said, her last album was really popular here and won genuine awards based on industry votes - not teenager tastes.

    Since Keith Richards is still alive, I'm thinking we can ignore the idiocy that says this is cause and effect.

    I'm not even a fan, obviously. But when people die at 27, it's shocking. When Heath Ledger died so young, it was heartbreaking. All that potential and talent; poof. Gone.

    And some of us don't half love the people we particularly admire. I cried when Johnny Cash died. Of COURSE it was expected, so see how that doesn't work? I said "He won't last six months without June" and I was right. He didn't.

    This is sad, but it's also not surprising. I heard that she had emphysema in her 20s because of all the drugs. I also didn't know she was only 27. She looks a lot older. I hope she has found peace finally.

    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."
    I know what you mean.... and I find it fascinating that she made into the music industry like she did. She was so addicted to drugs, how did she manage to accomplish a musical career? It seems like most musicians get on drugs worse once they have money and fame, but it seems like she was really well addicted before her success.
