Tragic and sad, but no to surprise to those familiar with her history of drug and alcohol abuse, [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Amy Winehouse[/lastfm] was found dead in her London flat by her security guards on July 23rd. The hugely talented soul singer joined the 27 Club, which includes ultra-talented musicians who died at the age of 27 like [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jimi Hendrix[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Janis Joplin[/lastfm], [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Kurt Cobain[/lastfm], and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Jim Morrison[/lastfm]. The coroner’s report backs up claims from her family that Winehouse had kicked her drug habit, but it was her alcoholism that claimed her life and cut short her talent.

Her post-humous album, “Lioness: Hidden Treasures,” was released earlier this month.
