In Memoriam: Amy Jade Winehouse (1983 - 2011)

Technorati tags: , ,

This obituary may come as a surprise to some. Especially for those who know Walski, and know what kind of music he likes.

Well, maybe you don’t know Walski well enough. No, he was never an Amy Winehouse fan, nor does her demise come as a shock of any kind. She lived a life and lifestyle that was, to put it mildly, on the edge. To know the real reason why Walski is posting this obit, listen to the following, with your eyes closed.

The world of popular music just lost a genuine, soul-filled voice, troubled as it may have been, and the naturally talented vocalist who brought that voice to the fore.

And it is for that reason Walski posts this. 
(27 Club gets another member, and more, in the full post)

If the video earlier on doesn’t convince you of the talent the world has lost, here’s another clip that probably gives more justice to the voice that was Amy Winehouse’s.

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home just short of her 28th birthday (cause of death still unknown/undisclosed), making the late vocalist/songwriter the newest inductee into the 27 Club, whose illustrious members include music legends such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, and of course, Kurt Cobain.

The Great Jam of the Realm Beyond just got a little sultrier...

RIP Amy – may your voice live among the living for eternity...
