    Thoughs on her career/death. Personally I loved her voice, such a tragic loss of talent. No intentions of starting a trash thread just interested in people's opinions.

    I never really knew a lot about her because I didn't really listen to any of her music.

    She was a drug addict, right? For how long was she struggling with addiction?

    She struggled with drugs for most of her life and all of her career. Got pretty bad a few months before her death although the toxicology reports said she was clean.

    Her talent was undeniable. Everything else was just unfortunate.

    THIS.

    She chose drugs over being a legend... her music, and voice are great... it's such a shame that the drugs took over. I think she had an abusive boyfriend/on-and-off husband as well

    Only thing to ever be reported about her was the negative aspects, though that is what sells in media today. Never got to see the good, which I am sure there was.

    Not really a fan, but a human life is a human life.

    She was very talented, and a cautionary tale as to how drugs and alcohol can cloud and obstruct, eventually ruining your directions and goals in life.

    That said, she struggled to overcome her addictions and went through rehab 6 times.

    Unfortunately, the human body can only withstand so many shocks (cold turkey-ing and then binge-ing) and that took a terrible toll. She'd already developed emphysema.

    I loved Back to Black.

    I didn't care for her first album though.

    It's sad to see her go, but I'm getting a little annoyed by the whole ordeal. I've heard people compare her to Janis, Hendrix, Cobain, and Morrison.

    GTFO.

    She was compared to them because they all died at age 27...it's called the 27 Club.

    Lots of other famous people have died at 27. The 27 club is typically reserved for people who made an impact on their art.

    ::Shrugs:: She's the first female British singer to win 5 Grammys according to Wikipedia. It is what it is. I believe she had an irreplacable talent.

    Yup. I feel bad saying this, but it almost seems that her music has a more profound impact now that she's gone, which I think is epitomized in Wake up Alone. Personally, I also wish that I didn't discover how good Back to Black really is after she passed away. But I guess better late than never, right?

    Meh. Wikipedia acknowledges most, if not all, the artists who died at 27. She just got highly publicized for her death.

    I just started listening to her music like last week. I only really knew "Rehab" and I heard "You Know I'm No Good" a few times.

    I will always remember her Grammy performance from 2008. I thought she was brilliant. Her voice was from another generation. Very sad that nobody could help her but herself, and she chose not to.

    Here's one of my favorites that I've been listening to.

    It's always sad to see anybody die in active addiction.

    And that is exactly what she did. Adele, the best selling artist of 2011, has constantly said without Amy Winehouse, she would not be where she is. She ignited a whole new sub-genre of music, let alone re-opened the door for new British acts in the U.S.

    I guess she shouldn't have said no, no, no to rehab
