On Saturday when I heard Amy Winehouse joined the 27 Club, I was shocked. It is not like it was unexpected, but over the past year or so, I think everyone thought she was getting better. The only clue people had that she was not doing that great was that last concert performance, her subsequent cancellation of the tour and her quick entrance and exit to and from rehab. But she had been in and out of rehab before and she had done lots and lots of drugs and boozing in the past and been fine. So, when the news hit, I think it still took everyone by surprise.

Over the weekend, Russell Brand wrote her a letter and discussed his relationship with her. It is a pretty good read.
Her friends are saying she took a bad Ecstasy pill which combined with the booze and coke and ketamine she bought turned out to be a deadly combination. It is always the combinations that get you in the end. I wonder where her latest boyfriend is or was. Her ex, Blake, said he would miss her and that he is a mess without her. Considering he was a big part of her addiction and issues, I would appreciate it if he went back to his hole and shut up. A shrine is set up outside Amy's home and an autopsy will probably show she died from a variety of things and afflictions she already had.
