God, what is going on in the world? First the Norway horror and absolute tragedy, and now Amy Winehouse, just 27, found dead in her flat in North London. Obviously troubled, addictive and facing the difficulty of Celebrity, she was the most extraordinary voice and singer. Uncompromising on stage, to the point of being self abusive, that voice could be so beautiful and even hauntingly pure. There are no real details yet, so perhaps it was an overdose or suicide, and it is extraordinary that her Wikedpedia entry has already been changed, but what did the jeering at her drunken concert in Serbia do, who knows the pain that can go on inside people, and the madness too? What a terribly sad day.
