R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

By Scott Lapatine / July 24, 2011 - 5:35 pm

UK press is reporting that the troubled British R&B singer died in her home today of a suspected drug overdose, though cause of death is still officially unexplained. Despite recently completing a rehab program, Winehouse had to cancel a European tour following a disastrous performance in Belgrade. Like Kurt Cobain, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix, Winehouse was 27 years old.

The music community has taken to Twitter to express feelings about the tragic loss. Below are some of the more notable condolences from her acquaintances and admirers.
