The Root - “the singer-songwriter Amy Jade Winehouse, 27, was found dead in her London home. Eerily, the “Rehab” songstress goes down in rock-and-roll history as another casualty of the 27 Club, which includes Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and several others — blues and rock singers who died before their time. “
It seems strange that so many young musicians died at the age of 27. I mean, all of these individuals had difficulties and people were aware of their struggles, but to see how successful they all were before the early age of 27 when they died, is shocking. Too many talented young people are dying from drug overdoses and it is truly sad. We all use to joke about what a mess Winehouse was, but when you take into consideration that her life has now ended, it’s not all that funny. I hope that this doesn’t continue to happen, although, I’m pretty positive that it will.
