Amy Winehouse dead at 27 – Drug/alcohol overdose?

July 23rd, 2011

Amy Winehouse, the soulful singer with the amazing voice and the troubled drug and alcohol use history is dead at 27, according to London Police. Sadly, Amy Winehouse’s celebrity has for the past few years been tied more to her drug and alcohol use than to her music.

No one has reported on whether her death is directly related to drug or alcohol overdose but given Amy’s history with heroin, alcohol, crack, and other drugs, it would not be surprising. This is especially true given her recent cancellation of a European tour due to what seemed like serious drug and alcohol use issues that just didn’t allow her to perform.

This is a sad, sad, reminder that addiction and drug abuse can lead to tragic endings and hopefully will serve as a wake-up call to other addicts who may be close to a similar end but can find the courage and motivation to change in light of Amy’s death.
