From Denny: Music legend Amy Winehouse (1983 - 2011) died this week on July 23rd, a victim of too much fame in too short a time, according to one of her closest band members. She was loved by many, all of whom tried to help her with her extreme addictions but to no avail.
Her music, her grab you lyrics, her powerful voice, her intense attitude were all of another era - and all the best eras combined. She was a five time Grammy winner, an R & B Soul tortured torch singer. Music critics and fans alike lauded her and her music. She will be greatly missed.
The good news is she was at work on another album and left us about another seven tracks. The album was never finished. It will be interesting to see if her band pulls together to finish it as they would be the most likely ones to safeguard her musical legacy.
Amy was found dead at her London home at age 27. Enjoy some of her music and think a kind thought for her.
