I don't think so many drummerworld members would be offering condolences if she was just some pop idiot. She was one of few talented mainstream singers. Her album "Back to Black" was a throwback to that motown 1960's soul sound. Before that, she sort of did some jazzy stuff (not too familiar with her early music). A true original in today's world of pop music. I'd say that her work was comparable to someone like Raphael Saadiq, who's going back to retro 1960's sounds.
Unfortunately, she descended back into drugs and this is how everything ended.
