Amy Winehouse died today and I will miss her. She only had two albums so far but her impact was wide and she was much loved as a person and much admired as an artist. Her future was promising and then her life was snuffed out by forces probably beyond her control.
She died at 27 which happens to a lot of the greats. I don’t know if it is one of those quirks of art or just the law of averages for people who live the kind of lives they lead. But we also lost Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Brian Jones, Curt Cobain, Robert Johnson, Alan “Blind Owl” Wilson, and many other musicians at the very tender age of 27. Say what they will about 21 and 25, 27 is the age when, for most of us, you truly become an adult. Or not, it seems.
Goodbye, Amy. You will always be loved. I hope your next project makes you happyShare on Facebook
