Amy Deadhouse

As most of you have heard by now, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment.

Unfortuatenly, no matter how many times she tried to go rehab, she has finally lost the battle with drugs and alcohol joining the infamous 27 club.   (influential rock music artists who died at the age of 27.)

Jimi Hendrix - Autopsy showed he asphyxiated on vomit after combining sleeping pills with wine.

Janis Joplin - Probable heroin overdose.

Jim Morrison - Cause of death listed as “heart failure”; however, no autopsy was performed.

Kurt Cobain - Ruled as suicide by shotgun.

Robert Johnson - Unknown, but typically credited to strychnine poisoning.

Brian Jones - Drowned in a swimming pool. The coroner’s report stated “death by misadventure.”

Ron McKernan - Gastrointestinal hemorrhage associated with alcoholism.

Jean-Michel Basquit – Speedbal overdose.

Amy Winehouse – TBD – autoposy on the way.

I know this news does not come as  shocker to most of us since we all saw it coming. I’m personally surprised she lasted until age 27. I did root for her to get her shit together but after her latest perforamnce in Belgrade, it was pretty clear she was not going to clean up her act.

After this “performance,” Winehouse canceled her European tour.  It’s a shame to see someone with so much talent self-destruct.

Let’s remember the innocent, pre-drugs Amy from her younger years:
