Sad news guys….super sad….


SkyNews in the U.K is reporting that troubled singer, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her Camden flat [apartment], in North London, moments ago, today.Apparently, the London Ambulance Service was called to her home just after 4PM [10AM E.S.T] but they were not able to revive her.

A press release from the Metropolitan Police, says [Amy Winehouse is not name in the press release]:

Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.

The Back To Black singer, had cancelled all tour dates and engagements last month after a series of erratic public appearances which she had become known for.

She had been troubled by drink and drugs problems throughout her career. My heart goes out to her family & I weep that we lost another one [Jimi Hendrix (27yrs) , Kurt Cobain (27yrs), Jim Morrison (27yrs), Janis Joplin (27yrs), Robert Leroy Johnson (27yrs)] when the signs stared at us, right in the face….

I thought Jay Z’s lyrics in the Rehab remix with Amy were ominous;

My heroin flows, more deeper than Marilyn‘s nose

I’mma O.D. ’til I’m in peace like Anna Nicole,


“Tears Dry On Their Own” by Amy Winehouse:


Rest In Peace Amy.
