The Death Of Amy Winehouse


While the authorities still call the cause of the death of Amy Winehouse "unexplained" and the official results of the autopsy are not expected before tomorrow, new details emerge about the last hours of the singer. Amy Winehouse was seen buying a trait of drugs that included cocaine, ecstasy and ketamine from a drug dealer in London's Camden around 10:30 Friday night.

It was also reported that she seemed determined to get completely smashed. A source said: "None of us know who was with her in the early hours of Saturday, but out of it was clearly his most important priority of the night.." Someone also share that Coke Amy bought enough there was not much of a problem because she could "do cocaine until the cows came home." Instead, friends of Amy saying that "ecstasy pill doubtful" mixed with the large amount of alcohol was probably the last straw.

I can not think of all the disturbing details surrounding the deaths of artists.

Questions about the suicide of Kurt Cobain and the drug, a combination of heroin and alcohol is the destruction Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix choked to death as after taking nine sleeping pills, Sublime singer Bradley Nowell's heroin overdose (28, was one of the stars in the 27 Club). These tales have become part of the story disturbing rock 'n roll'. I remember vividly how young some of my peers and even repeated the stories of Cobain's idealistic, and Nowell's death, when they occurred. It 'been like to live fast, die young and leave a beautiful corpse was something some of them tried. And it is fear itself. Since there is no need either of these events is fictionalized.

It is sad that all these talented musicians have been ill, suffering from addiction, which, as Russell Brand has noted in his blog praise on Amy, is a serious disease. And it would be a disservice to his memory to absorb the details of the death of Amy and pass them as 'other' fuel dead celebrity drug. As Russell wrote:

All we can do is adapt the way we view this condition, not as a crime or a romantic affectation but as a disease that will kill. We need to review the way society treats addicts, not as criminals but as sick people in need of care.


Often we just assume and accept that someone is required to be equipped with an addict, as artists would simply not exist without dependence, the two go hand in hand. Perhaps it is true to some extent, but I do not think I can only accept this. Russell is right. Maybe if not turn a blind eye to it, we would lose less creative geniuses too young.
