Forever 27: RIP Amy Winehouse

This Saturday July 23rd Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London flat at 27 years of age, joining Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison and Brian Jones (and Shannon Hoon) in the 27 Club. Death and loss is always a sad event, but the most tragic detail in this troubled singers passing, is that not a single person is surprised; and at the same time, no one could do anything to save her. She was a talented singer and songwriter, who's Grammy winning, critically acclaimed album, Back to Black spawned success across oceans. Unfortunately, she succumbed to the vice that possibly made her the artist millions of people loved to listen to and couldn't help but gawk at. She was doomed from the beginning, and we all sat back and watched as she self-destruct.
