RIP Amy Winehouse

Is it coincidental or just due to plain natural causes? Did she want to join the Club 27? Or did she just die of drug overdose? Sigh. Questions, questions.

For all those who don’t know, Club 27 is a label for influential musicians who died at 27. Founding members are: Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Jimmi Hendrix and Janis Joplin. What are the odds that they died at 27? And now Amy Winehouse?

It was bound to happen anyway. Her self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent. A talent that helped me survive the bleakest year of my life. Her music and lyrics was like the scripture for wallowing in emotional destruction.

The world needs more artists like her except when she’s on crack and binging on alcohol.

R.I.P. Amy Winehose
the one who trekked a troubled track but influenced the world in inconspicuous ways.
