I am beyond sad to write this news. Singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment this morning. She was 27 years of age. The same age as legends who passed on before their time including Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix. My heart is absolutely broken. I met Amy when she’d just released “Back To Black,” one of my favorite albums of the 2000s and she was so lovely and full of life. I saw her perform the entire record and the night was amazing. She was plagued by drug problems, a broken heart and vile reports from the media that only sought to bring her down further instead of trying to help. The cause of death is unknown at press time, but I guarantee you, the negative reports from the media should definitely be listed as a partial cause of death. In times like this, we must stop watching these news reports and try and figure out solutions instead of being part of the problem. Wherever you are Amy, I hope you are out of pain and your music will always bring a smile to my face. I am so glad I got to meet you in this life. You were truly one of a kind. Rest in peace, legend.
