Amy Winehouse

With illegal substances ruled out of Amy Winehouse’s death earlier this year, the cause of the singer’s untimely demise remained a mystery.  But no more.  Winehouse’s death was recently ruled an unintentional over-consumption of alcohol, a “death by misadventure.” The pathology test confirmed Winehouse had extreme amounts of alcohol in her system; she had five times the legal drunk-driving limit when she was found dead in her London home on July 23.  There was said to have been numerous vodka bottles sprawled out in Winehouse’s room. She’s among the great Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, and Kurt Cobain to join the famous 27 club.

Winehouse without her usual beehive hairdo

Winehouse was originally made popular by her “Rehab” song, which is a little ironic I suppose.  It’s hard to say how successful the star could have been since she died so tragically young.  Tony Bennett saw potential and talent in her, so it’s safe to say she would have been something pretty special.

Her voice was anything but conventional, and her 50s style was a fresh breath of air among the overdone pop queens.  She was different, and she will be remembered for that.

It was too bad she was taken away by drugs and alcohol.  If Winehouse wasn’t so plagued by her addictions, maybe we could have heard more from her.
