As can be found listed on www.thisdayinmusic.com/, one year ago today, on July 23, 2011, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her home in London. Since she was relatively renowned, especially in terms of her notoriety with her substance abuse, the internet blew up with news, comments, etc. regarding her death. Everyday conversations began including her as it happens with most celebrity deaths.
Winehouse’s death was further interesting, though, in regards to her age at the time. She was 27 years old when she was found dead. Therefore, she was in good company with the rest of the “27 Club,” most notably including Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Brian Jones, Kurt Cobain, and several others.
Without much familiarity with her music, it is difficult to bear an adequate tribute to Winehouse and her work. However, condolences and respect are extended to Winehouse and her loved ones. Stay strong on this first anniversary of Amy’s passing.
