Amy Winehouse wurde heute in ihrer Wohnung tot aufgefunden, die 27jährige verstarb unter bislang ungeklärten Umständen. 27, fuck! Das Wochenende trete ich hiermit einmal komplett in die Tonne.

Im Moment bin ich nicht zuhause, ich sammel nachher hier dazu ein paar Links. Damn!

[update] Amy Winehouse starb im selben Alter wie Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Brian Jones, Jean-Michel Basquiat und ist damit Mitglied im 27 Club der zu jung gestorbenen Künstler. What a sad day this is.

Few artists summed up their own career in a single song — a single line — as well as Amy Winehouse.

"They tried to make me go to rehab," she sang on her world-conquering 2006 single, "Rehab." ''I said 'No, no no.'"

Occasionally, she said yes, but to no avail: repeated stints in hospitals and clinics couldn't stop alcohol and drugs scuttling the career of a singer whose distinctive voice, rich mix of influences and heart-on-her sleeve sensibility seemed to promise great things.

In her short lifetime, Winehouse too often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. But it's her small but powerful body of recorded music that will be her legacy.

Hier noch ihr 51minütiger Auftritt für die BBC. Feinster Soul grandios vorgetragen mit der nötigen Spur Abfuck – der sie heute das Leben gekostet hat - in der Stimme. Amy Winehouse auf dem Höhepunkt ihres Schaffens, so wie ich mich an sie erinneren werde. What a sad, sad Day.
