Michael Jackson was probably sick of his life and took the drugs.
Wouldn't you?

Your post confuses me for a few reasons:

1. Why conflate Amy Winehouse, the latest addition to the 27 club, with Michael Jackson, who died at 50?

2. Who are these "one hit wonders" you're talking about as the other members of the 27 club? There are seven that are commonly agreed on: Robert Johnson (the music industry was killing people in 1938?), Brian Jones (a founding member of the Rolling Stones and a key player in their classic early years was a "one hit wonder"?), Jimi Hendrix ("one hit wonder"?), Janis Joplin ("one hit wonder"?), Jim Morrison ("one hit wonder"? -- and if you listen to what the Doors tried to do without him, you'll realize he was worth more alive than dead), Kurt Cobain (two number one albums in a row after a debut that was pretty damn successful given that it was released on an indie label is a "one hit wonder"?), and Amy Winehouse. I'd actually go so far as to argue that Winehouse doesn't even belong on this list, given that her singles never charted well and the only reason a majority of people know her name is a result of the number of tabloid-type media outlets e.g. Perez Hilton, TMZ, etc. Which leads me to point 3...

3. Six of the seven names on the list are people who lead incredibly self-destructive lifestyles, with Winehouse being the poster child. She was far more well known for her stints in rehab, her public displays while on a wide variety of substances, and her mental health issues than for her music. I'd be more surprised if any of these people had made it to their fifties, much less their seventies.

Wouldn't you?


Then why would he announce his new tour days before he died...

So no, he wasn't sick of his life.

On wiki it says 27 club is full of people that LIVED the rock and roll life style. She is know for drinking allot. I think the 27 club is more then just a coincidence, Amy's mom said in a interview that Amy should have never joined that stupid 27 club.

if she died from an overdose, it wasn't an overdose of illegal drugs. none were found in her system. there was alcohol in her system though..and there is always the possibility of legal drugs, like prescription drugs. but that wasn't mentioned. so it may not have been an overdose at all. www.dailymail.co.uk...


But today it has been announced that the toxicology results have been returned to the Winehouse family by authorities and confirm that there were no illegal substances in Amy's system at the time of her death.

In statement released today a spokesperson for the family said: 'Results indicate that alcohol was present but it cannot be determined as yet if it played a role in her death.'

Um, I'm not a business-minded person and I don't know a lot about the record industry, but wouldn't record labels make MORE money with alive musicians? Yeah, sales increase after someone dies, but I don't see why a corporation would kill a moneymaker when they could clean her up enough to go on tour and release a new album.

The 27 club is a myth.
More rockers and ala rollers have died at other 20 something ages

Uh yeah "the family claims" that no drugs were in here system
. If you believe that then I got a bridge that I'd like to sell you. Even if that by some far off chance is the truth then whatever killed her I would bet dollars to doughnuts was drug related.

Infering that Amy Winehouse is part of the 27 Club is ridiculous. Seriously you cannot be comparing this hack with the likes of Janis Joplin, Jimmi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison... She was a hack, a flash in the pan, and CERTAINLY not in the same league as the aforementioned Legends of Rock & Roll...

Exactly your not amy hasn't released material for a while and knowing how popular she is they weren't going to wait for another album why do that when you can make millions within short time they see their musicians as expendable and im sure they have plenty of live musicians
