I don’t pretend to be knowledgeable about today’s music scene in any way but one thing I do know is that the death of Amy Winehouse, through alleged drink/drug abuse carries on the the sad tradition of talented people destroying their lives at an early age.
I’m a child of the 60’s and well remember some spectacular star deaths, not least Elvis Presley, due to many things, including drugs, and of course the likes of Brian Jones of The Rolling Stones, and Keith Moon of The Who. There are others, who although not my personal favourites, were big stars in their time, like Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain to name two.
It might be easier to name stars who didn’t dabble in drink/drugs at some point, but Amy will join the list of those who will never age now and will always be fondly remembered by her fans as she was. R.I.P girl.
