R.I.P. Amy Winehouse

Another music icon has been taken from us too soon. Twenty-seven year old Amy Winehouse was found dead today in her London home.

Winehouse's death didn't come as a huge shock to most-- It's widely known she struggled with addiction to drugs and alcohol. Though the cause of death is currently unknown, many are speculating it was an overdose of some kind.

It's unfortunate she never lived up to her full potential. It also seems as if she never got the chance to enjoy her well-deserved fame acquired by exceptional talent. Many hoped she would get her life back on track.

Other musicians in The 27 Club include: Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Jim Morrison and Kurt Cobain.

Amy Winehouse's album Back to Black sold over a million copies and won five Grammys. She will be remembered by music lovers all over the world.
