Amy, Amy, Amy…

I was saddened, although not surprised, by the news of Amy Winehouse’s death yesterday.  I’ve been a big fan since her release of “Back to Black”.  After getting familiar with that work I went back to also pick up her 2003 release, “Frank”.  I thought both were engaging, smart, musically interesting and I adored her voice and the sound she had.  Many of the posts on this blog were written with her music providing the soundtrack.

As her slow motion self destruction rolled inexoribaly forward I kept hoping she would pull out of the nosedive, pull herself together and be able to get back to the studio and tour again.  Alas, it’s not to be.  It turns out that she really did cheat herself, like she knew she would.
