To no one’s shock but to everyone’s dismay, British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead today in her London apartment. She was 27.
Winehouse joins the pantheon of other brilliant but troubled musicians to pass away at that tragic number: The Rolling Stones‘ Brian Jones (1969), Jimi Hendrix (1970), Janis Joplin (1970), Jim Morrison (1971) and Kurt Cobain (1994).
The cause of Winehouse’s death has yet to be confirmed. [Daily Mail]
