Weekend Scoop: 27 Club Edition

by Kay Lynn

My husband and I were saddened to hear that Amy Winehouse became a member of the 27 Club this weekend. She joined the group of musicians that died at age 27: Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, and Curt Cobain. All talented, but troubled people.  Who knows what music would have been created if they had lived full lives.  Enjoy my favorite Amy Winehouse song, Rehab,  in the video.

Thank you for the link.
Although I’m a classical music fan and have thus never heard a Winehouse song, I’m so sorry that she couldn’t outrun her demons, and sorry for her family’s loss. Poor child.

I was a junior in high school when Kurt Cobain committed suicide. Many of my friends were deeply affected by his death, especially the violent manner in which he killed himself. It’s a shame that his demons, and those that haunted Amy Winehouse and the others, won.

Hopefully Amy Winehouse will one day be remember more for the legacy of her music rather than her addictions.

I really liked her music, especially “Rehab” and unfortunately she joined the club of famous singers who died at 27 from drugs.

RIP: Amy Winehouse.
