Amy Winehouse, the British R&B singer whose spectacular voice and notorious troubles captivated the world, has been found dead in her North London home. She was 27.

In news that no one saw coming. She was found dead and the music industry really is poorer without her. Very talented but unfortunately self-destructive for a long time.

Shame.

He's probably got the same neanderthal 'process cocaine and alcohol like they were chicken soup' genes that Ozzy Osbourne has:-

Perhaps if they compared Keith's and Ozzy's genomes they could isolate the particular gene that provides immunity to death from drugs and alcohol.

I don't think it's that unusual to survive to your 60s whilst drinking a shitload and using drugs. It's just most people I've met who do it don't have millions in the bank to cushion their lifestyle when they're mumbling wrecks who can't prepare themselves a meal or remember their own address.

The trick to longevity as a drug abuser is to do heroin. Whatever your drug of choice may be, if you live your entire life fucked up and you aren't doing heroin along with it, you're gonna die young.

This doesn't even compare to the children who died in Norway.

Whatever Whinehouse.

Legal drugs can kill you just as well as the illegal ones.

Bruce A. Goldberger, a toxicology professor at the University of Florida, said the negative toxicology result does not completely rule out the involvement of a drug or a combination of drugs that could have been missed by the testing procedures or were metabolized before the test.



He said some prescription drugs, illicit drugs and "designer" drugs can escape detection.
Nor does this test result rule out the toll years of drug and alcohol abuse could have had on Winehouse's body.
"The misuse/abuse of illicit drugs as well as prescription drugs can lead to cardiovascular disease and other changes in the body that can lead to death," Goldberger told ABCNews.com. "Alcohol abuse can cause similar changes."

I've heard speculation that she may have died from the effects of alcohol withdrawal.

She had alcohol in her system post-mortem.

I am offended that some people declare that a person is 'clean' when they are filled with a cocktail of prescription drugs and alcohol.

Apparently, if you drink enough over a long enough period of time, then it's possible to go through alcohol withdrawal while having a blood alcohol level high enough to make an ordinary person drunk.

They said they found no "class A" drugs in her system. I am guessing class a= schedule 1 for us Americans. So yes, she boozed and benzo'd her way into oblivion I am going with Xanax and vodka FTW!

I knew a guy who died like that in custody, he fitted and choked.

They just mean is that the person isn't setting a bad example by dying of alcohol and pharmaceuticals, rather than that other stuff.
