    I am sorry that the lady's life ended like that but you reap what you sow.  A great jazzy voice when she was straight though.

      What a shame, we really liked her voice but not her lifestyle. Interesting that she was 27 as was Jim Morrison and Janice Joplin. Great musical careers cut way  too short.

        Sometimes you make your own destiny.  Sad.

          I was so hoping she could get it together and have a long, industrious career. She is now free from the demons that plagued her. RIP.

            Would have grown to become a great jazz vocalist. 27 must be a tough age for musicians - Kurt Cobain, Robert Johnson, "Pigpen" McKernan(Greatful Dead), Brian Jones (Rolling Stones) are some of the others that I can think of. There is even a 27 Club - of which Amy Winehouse is now an unfortunate member.

               Another one for the 27 Club.....Jimi Hendrix.  Amy had a great voice.  I also miss Eva Cassidy who died at age 33 from cancer.  She sang like a songbird, just lovely.

                Janis Joplin, Billie holiday, now Amy Whitehouse. The horrible power of drugs takes away another great voice.

                      Where the heck were her family, friends, management.......
                       
                      There was a dead pool going on her, and that's a disgrace.

                          Tim Hardin, Nick Drake, and Judee Sill all come to mind.  It's always sad.

                            Begging her to go to rehab.  Kind of like Chris Farley's, John Belushi's and countless others.  If you don't think you have a problem, why would you seek help for a solution?

                                They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, "No, no, no"
                                Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know
                                I ain't got the time and if my daddy thinks I'm fine
                                He's tried to make me go to rehab, I won't go, go, go

                                I'd rather be at home with Ray
                                I ain't got seventeen days
                                'Cause there's nothing, there's nothing you can teach me
                                That I can't learn from Mr. Hathaway

                                I didn't get a lot in class
                                But I know we don't come in a shot glass

                                They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, "No, no, no"
                                Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know know know

                                The man said, "Why do you think you here?"
                                I said, "I got no idea"
                                I'm gonna, I'm gonna lose my baby
                                So I always keep a bottle near

                                He said, "I just think you're depressed
                                Kiss me, yeah baby and go rest"

                                They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, "No, no, no"
                                Yes, I've been black but when I come back you'll know, know, know

                                I don't ever wanna drink again
                                I just, ooh, I just need a friend
                                I'm not gonna spend ten weeks
                                Have everyone think I'm on the mend

                                And it's not just my pride
                                It's just 'til these tears have dried

                                  They all tried. They tried publicly, they tried privately. I mean, this is a woman who wrote a song about resisting attempts to help her: "They tried to make me go to rehab, I said, no, no, no...."

                                  edit: That's what I get for posting before reading the thread to the end, I jump in with what's already been said. If you poke around, there's quite a bit about how she defied and subverted every attempt to help her. It's what addicts do, unfortunately.
