This week is going to be hectic for me. I am working this tournament in Stanford. We got thru the qualies this weekend, a monster draw. But I wanted to throw something up related to the passing of Amy Winehouse, who was found dead yesterday in her London apartment. The things that she did to her ( put in) her body was tabloid fodder for the last few years. She made John Belushi look like a choir boy. It does not surprise anyone that she OD’ed (not confirmed yet pending an autopsy, but you can bet it will be drug related). A great talent self destructing, not news, but what is one hell of a coincidence is the number of greats that offed themselves (self induced, either intentionally or not) at 27.
So there is this week’s theme, any music you like by either these unlucky 27ers, or from anyone that died too soon.
Amy gets top billing:
She should have gone to rehab after all, I liked her style.
How about some teen spirit?
Who Do You Love? -Jim Morrison
Half of Lynyrd Skynyrd died in a plane crash ala Buddy Holly, one of my favorites, Simple Man.
Yep, people die, but that does not mean we have to like it.
