So sad, such a young person with so much pain. Lets not be so hard on her, she was still a human being. She is in heaven now. NO MORE PAIN...Thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

Everyone was else on the 27 list was an icon, legend, or musical genius. Winehouse was a one hit wonder. Half the people I work with had literally no idea who she even was when I mentioned her death. RIP Amy, but no 27 list for you......

According to Worldometer, there have been over 31 million deaths worldwide this year to date. 51,000 deaths today alone.

So why the thrill that six people over the past 45 years have died at the age of 27. During that same period of time there have been 2.6 billion deaths on our planet, I would imagine some of those were aged 27, so whats the big deal?

Imagine 2.6 billion died in only 45 years, what about during the past 6000 years? So much for any concept of heaven....What is that over a trillion? Delusional

Comparing this woman in any way shape or form to the greatest rock and roll performer of all times, James Douglas Morrison, is an absolute and complete disgrace.

Amy was one of the most talents artists of our time. I am really sad to hear of her premature passing. Drug addiction is a huge problem that comes with that kind of bussiness. I am so happy to of been able to enjoy your music. God bless you Amy! I hope you are in a better happy place and all of your pain is gone.

She was talented but not as talented as the amazing artist in the 27 club. So I do not think she should be grouped with those artist. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this devastating time. May she be free from her demons now.

Please don't compare her to the likes of Jimi and Kurt. Yeah the were all junkies, but they at least had musical talent. Her only talent was being a junkie.

There may be no comparisons between Kurt, Jimi, and others with the exception they all were deeply into the blues. Jellyroll Morton was the first to encounter this ancient spirit they call the devil to help develop this cool form of music they called Jazz, and thats where the links and comparisons really begin, if you can dig that.

Unfortunately, most/all of these people died from years of drug abuse and bad choices. There is no curse. You do bad things to your body and eventually your body gives up on you.
