Amy Winehouse's death the other day really was a surprise to me, i found out about it on Facebook that evening, and i really was shocked. She was only 27. The same age as Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Janis Joplin when they died.
As she did die from a drug overdose some people are less sympathetic towards her.
No matter how someone dies, when you are 27 and have so much talent it is a truly sad loss to the world.
I bought the recent edition of NME that was about her, and i love the cover. Its simple and elegant, it didn't need anything else on it.
