I wasn't an Amy Winehouse fan. But I thought her one hit single was pretty good, if not a blatant cry for help that was answered with Grammy nominations instead of interventions. But then, I'm sure her family and friends tried to get her help. If I've learned anything from TLC's "Intervention" it's that you can't force an addict to get clean. They have to want it.
No cause of death has been determined just yet. But I'm sure we all have an idea. And it made me think about the 27 Club. Winehouse just joined it today. Hopefully she won't be listed in the same breath as Joplin, Morrison or Cobain. But her age, occupational choice and modicum of fame will surely mean she'll make the roster.
