Sky News had it first and now Daily Mail followed suit: Amy Winehouse is reported dead this afternoon 4 pm at her London flat. She was only 27 years old. According to the Daily Mail article she had cancelled all upcoming show dates after a rather dreadful performance in Belgrade in June. The web keeps getting populated now with more news and details as to her untimely passing. Sad, but as many said: Unfortunately not totally unexpected… Still sad. We’ll be missing out on a lot of great music that would have certainly come from her… – if she had gotten the help she seems to have needed.
I also suggest reading Katherine Gilraine’s take on the sad news, which speaks my mind and feelings about this pretty much 100%.
