Earlier today, London Ambulance Service paramedics found soul-jazz artist Amy Winehouse dead in her apartment. A cause of death has not yet been confirmed, but it is speculated to be a drug overdose. An autopsy will take place within the next 24 hours.
The 27-year-old Grammy winner had built a self-destructive image with publicized substance abuse and misbehavior following the release of her 2007 single “Rehab” in the U.S. Winehouse will join a talented group of troubled musicians, including Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain, in The 27 Club.
All tabloid criticism aside, the retro-inspired troublemaker was an amazing female artist whose soulful vocals will shuffle through my catalog this Saturday.
