Amy Winehouse Dead
# 46 : Saturday 23-7-2011 @ 23:21
Police officer urges caution on Winehouse death speculation

A senior British police officer tonight urged the media not to speculate over the cause of Amy Winehouse’s death.

Superintendent Raj Kohli said it would be “inappropriate” to discuss what killed the singer before a post-mortem examination has taken place.

Speaking near her home in Camden, north London, he said: “Police were called by the London Ambulance Service to a house in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 4.05om today to reports of a woman found deceased.

“On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female, who was pronounced dead at the scene. Next of kin have been informed, and I can confirm that the deceased is Amy Winehouse.

“Inquiries continue as to the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained. There have been no arrests in connection with this incident.

“I am aware of reports suggesting that the death was a result of a suspected drugs overdose, but I would like to re-emphasise that no post-mortem examination has yet taken place and it would be inappropriate to speculate on the cause of death.”

Winehouse had a well-publicised battle with drink and drugs during her short life.

Mr Kohli added: “I would urge media to avoid speculation that might cause further distress to Ms Winehouse’s family at this difficult time.

“The death of any person is a sad time for friends and family – in particular someone like Amy Winehouse, very well-known nationally and internationally.

“My sympathy extends not just to her immediate family but to her thousands, millions of fans across the world.”

It is understood the singer's father, taxi driver-turned-jazz singer Mitch Winehouse, is returning to the UK from New York where he was due to give a concert on Monday.

Indeed. We are all assuming here, albeit with good reason, it was drugs that killed her- accidental or on purpose.

It might not have been an overdose but perhaps they did have a part to part in the ending of her life.Significant user as of hers is always going to do damage somewhere.

Amy, you were an inspiration to me. I hope you have found peace, what a voice, what a talent. Thank you.

I think she wasted her talent while she was alive and was a fool to do so, however o pay my respects to the woman. I hope she rests in peace. I know people won't, but I think there should be respect for the dead. Regardless of addiction, weaknesses, talent or sustain, she is a human being and deserves the same respect as any of us would hope for. She was no angel but was talented as foook! None of which matters now. My heart goes out to her family.

Amy back in 2004...

One of her good times. Nice funny video!

Another good Amy clip again from 2004

Someone said :

No one said she got what she deserved

I'm afraid Prionsias did. He seems to enjoy sneering at her death. If we asked the people on Gaire to raise a hand who didn't have an alcoholic or addict of some kind in their families it would be a small show of hands. Only a coward can sneer at someone so recently dead in such circumstances.

And he has a right to that opinion, as Ery has a right to hers and you have a right to yours, but some times Cheezy you make it bigger, I respect you but most of us where going to let it slide, threads have being bumped for this discussion anyway? Why bring it into this thread, I don't agree necessarily with Ery or Blah (using the name he choose,when personally attacking him it gives you more kudos) but I'm not about to disagree with them in this thread. Why? cause someone died, she's going to be missed by someone including me (but probably more her family) and I really didn't think Blah's or Ery comments deserved to be commented on in any sort of personnel way

It's always sad when a light goes out,especially of one so young and talented,maybe it is a quirk in some creative people to be so disturbed in order to create a fresh pallet,a mad mirror that we can look into and reflect on. Wish she had got the help she so desperately needed.

Amy on stage being told she had won Record of the Year at the Grammys.

She looked so shocked. Nice little moment with her mother too.

OMG Shaggy, she looks so vunerable and scared in that video thank you for sharing
# 59 : Sunday 24-7-2011 @ 02:07
This was Amy at her last ever concert in Belgrade, Serbia, in June. Her slide down the slippery slope of addiction is pretty sad and shocking.

I don't think it is fair to show that clip, In all fairness.
There is nothing to gain by showing her at the peak of her latest bout of illness.
Let us remember her for the good music she produced.....
