Amy Winehouse died today, aged 27. I think it's pretty obvious that it was from her completely unchecked alcohol and drug addictions, but I'm sad nonetheless. Music got me through a lot of the very low points of medical school, and Amy Winehouse's music really expressed much of how I felt. I know that she was often falling down drunk at live performances, so I'm including a clip here to show that she really and truly was a talented girl who just couldn't get it together in the end.
Amy, sorry it didn't work out for you. We'll miss your voice and your soul.
