Re: Amy Winehouse one year later
There's a good basis for debate here. I think we can somewhat forgive those legends who drank or drugged themselves to death in the 1960s and early 70s (Joplin, Hendrix, etc.). Those were new and different times. It doesn't excuse their stupidity, but that won't change my opinion that they were both geniouses in their own right. It's 40 years later and we should all know better about the hazards of drugs. Amy Winehouse's music was decent enough but I don't feel much sorry for her, same for Curt Kobain. We all make mistakes, but... I don't know.
