I'm actually really sad about this. Back To Black is a brilliant album and Rehab was a genuine breath of fresh air when it arrived. It was the sound of an artist completely fulfilling all her expectations after a slightly underwhelming debut. She was a gifted singer and songwriter, someone who really understood music, and who brought genuine emotional depth to her creativity. I think most people bought Back To Black because of the music rather than the tabloid stories about her personal problems, and it's such a shame that the last five years were more about the latter.

Drug addiction really is one of the worst things that can befall a person and their family. It must be horrible watching someone – regardless of their talent – be in thrall to a substance that is killing them, and be unable to help. It's less a lifestyle choice too once it takes over – and that often happens without users realising. Paulsbass – she was in and out of rehab quite a bit over the years. And she recorded some demos of new material not so long ago – I don't know whether they're any good, but it's possible that if she'd cleaned up she could have created more of the standard of her second album. As when anyone young dies, part of the sadness is for what never was, for the unfulfilled potential.

That said, Cobain and Hendrix might well have been creatively spent by the time they died too. Their musical peaks were about three years before they died in each case, the same with Jim Morrison. But there are fuck-ups in every city in every country, and most of the time nobody cares. At least Amy was genuinely respected, admired and loved, regardless of the YouTube idiots who see all junkies as scum.

Well said.

I' m not going to comment about her life or her death cause because I don' t really know and I haven' t researched anything either.

I' m not too much in-tone with what' s going on right now in the music world. However, due to some comments in another site I decided to listen to a few covers made by her. I listened to her version of : To know him is to love him – All My Loving – will you still love me tomorrow. Those original songs are very good, specially the last two. I have to say, she (or the company?) completely ruined them! I couldn' t even finish listening to them. The background music is too poor and they put all the focus on the voice, which I guess it was the idea since if we want a stronger background we can listen to the original versions. But I don' t know, sounds like they tried to make all these wonderful songs into blues. She had a good voice, I'm not going to deny that (although it' s not my style), but it should have been put to better use, making the songs faster.
