I loved her work too. Thanks for posting this.

2 What, me worry?  Sat, Jul 23, 2011 11:57:57am

Wow. I was really hoping she could turn it around. This is so awful. What an absolutely shitty day.

God rest her soul.

Thanks iceweasel. Some talent.
I really am sad about this. Here's a younger, no tat Amy, and this song came around to be her it seems. She just moved me in ways that brought me back to being 12 years old and the promises that hid in the shadows. Damn it. Promise.

Poor woman. Addiction is hell.

Her voice was astonishing.

As in most smokey torch talent, if you didn't get it, you was never hurt that way. Never fought that fight. Never looked into Pandora's Box. Her voice was pure. Simple. I heard her. I heard Amy. 20 years from now some poor soul will stumble across this and have it smack him so hard. Soul is timeless.

This was a terrible waste. So much talent. She seemed to want to imitate her idols in every way including a tragic death at a young age. Me and Mr. Jones and Back to Black are two of my favorite songs of all time. I wish she had gone to rehab.

She just got out not long ago.

She was just like Billie Holliday.

Such a sad loss. Thanks for the post & links.

When you live life on the edge, you have only two inevitable possibilities: you get off, or you fall off.

Too many of the talented ones wind up falling off.

She brought me some things others could not. Music has always had a large role in my life and I heard in her voice a part of my life and something else that I cannot fully explain. She just had a feel and a vibe that did it for me. She had soul and kicked me in the head. I appreciate the comments. Thank you all. A lot of folks will just write her off as a loser, and she might be. But what a beautiful loser. Just another singer. Just another song. Brought me a bit of joy and for that I thank her.

This is true. Her music was painfully honest in a lot of ways that I don't want to admit. I don't drink much, if at all, anymore, but her songs were gut wrenching for anyone who's ever gotten anywhere close to the pain she felt.

I'm lucky. I'm not an addict, and dodged the bullet of alcoholism. But I could totally relate to the pain she felt in a lot of her songs. It's a sad loss. She had so much talent, but just couldn't kill her demons.

re: #12 Lidane
Dangle toes and look down into the shadows...Many go over and few come back.

After all it's only rock and roll. That and everything you are. Simpletons hear the sizzle and taste no steak. It's over but for the next release and the lost tapes and the glow of the train wreck. She was who she was. You can say "That's a drinking song" or just play Tom Waits until you just might get it. To me, a voice was lost. 27 fucking years old and so much older than that. Life will kill you.

One last taste before we put it to bed. Early Amy, full on.
