Tragic news but in no way shocking or surprising to me. She undeniably had a great voice and was much better than the usual cr*p being sprouted on commercial radios and networks, so for that she will be truly missed. However, the one thing that I fear is that by the simple fact of her early and tragic death, the media and fans will further romanticise her music and lifestyle. Her music was very good (although hardly original), but because of her joining the 27 Club, people will call her legendary, which I don't think 2 good albums and a patchy live performance record warrants.

I can't stop listening to Back to Black. Even though Amy only gave use two albums, she touched us deeply with her soulful voice and heart.

such terrible news about amy. incredibly sad. when i first heard about it i actually thought it was another death hoax but i must say given her most recent issues with the serbian concert and a mere 3 day stint in rehab,in addition to her overall problems since she came to prominence,perhaps culminated into a downward spiral. i hope she has a better existence on the other side,whatever that might be.....one without the demons and dependency that seemed to overwhelm her.....just sweet dreams.

i really blame the media for this. they build you up so far.....even encouraging one's behaviour....only to ridicule and shred people to tatters.

and btw,back to black seems all the more poignant now. not that she had any preconceived premonitions merely because of that song but it is highly coincidental that was amongst some of the real gems she made.

I couldn't believe it when my friend told me a few hours ago but with all things considered I guess we shouldn't be that shocked, but I was totally caught off guard

RIP AW

This is really sad, although I'm not a fan of her. A big loss of the music industry.

R.I.P Amy.

I wasn't suggesting that the tabloids alone lead to her death. It's a part of the vicious circle of first creating a 'star' out of a young artist, then introducing them to every last pitfall of stardom hoping they'd go arse over tit, only to raise howls of sanctimonious outrage afterwards. Tabloids are only interested in the successful and the troubled, and prey on the latter with predatory ruthlessness. It can all be a bit much, especially when one is young.

RIP Amy. She was a true talent. Such a shame that the demons she was dealing with got the best of her. :'(

I was shocked. She had unique voice and her songs are incredible. So sad that she's gone.
