RIP Amy Winehouse

Even though I've been cooped indoors surrounded by boxes and preparing for our grand store opening, news travels fast. Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment in Camden earlier today. The girl had such talent and such a beautiful and amazing voice, it's real a shame to the music industry.

Although police are saying it's unexplained, I'm pretty sure alot of people have guesses on how and why. Amy had a huge problem with drugs and alcohol, and delaying her comebacks again and again. And only recently having been jeered off stage during her first stint of her European tour for forgetting words, slurring and the typical "bad" Amy we've been seeing so much of the past few years. She has also been unwell recently as she's been cancelling promotion and photo shoots for Fred Perry (where she's made collections and models for).

It's such a tradegy that someone so young and talented has passed away; she had so much more to give. But she's joined the 27 club with Kurt Cobain and Jimi Hendrix. Strange coincidence? Who knows. May she rest in peace with them all.

In memory of Ms. Amy Winehouse, some of my favourites:

From the album "Frank," Stronger Than Me, In My Bed and Take The Box


And from "Back To Black," You Know I'm No Good and Back To Black
