In light of our discussions last week, I think it's fitting that we digress a little from our usual banter and make reference to another troubled artist lost this weekend:
Though I have never been a fan of her music, (Pete's sister Cathy does) I sorta liked her "do it my way" style. And, any 27 year old spiraling out of control and ending up dead is a tragedy ... I just wish she realized how special she was ... without drugs and alcohol. While we are just speculating, at this time we don't know what caused her death.
It makes sense to note that the late great Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, Kristen Pfaff (of Hole), Robert Johnson (blues artist), Brian Jones (Rolling Stone) all share Amy's death age as well as troubled past.
I wonder if it's a coincidence or an age that young troubled artists stress over that ultimately leads to the point of no return.
