Amy Winehouse Dead @ 27
Amy Winehouse Dead at 27
By Tim Cashmere
Singer Amy Winehouse has died today (Saturday July 23).
The cause of death is not immediately known, but it is understood that she was found in her London home, which police have confirmed to the Associated Press.
She was 27 years old.
What is it with the age of 27? So many rock stars die at that age - Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain...we know alcohol and drugs is the number one reason all these stars met an untimely early death. The number two reason is the not being able to cope with the fame monster, but is it a coincidence that it's always the magic number 27? Why then and not sooner or later? What is it about almost being 30 & famous?
