It's a shame to lose a singer with as much talent as Amy Winehouse. Her influence on many an aspiring young star was obvious not too many years ago - Amy look-alikes and sound-alikes were everywhere.
There was a time when I got thoroughly sick of the way the press treated her - always publishing the least flattering photos of Amy after a rough night or a fight with her boyfriend and often making her the subject of unkind jokes. What ever troubled her, I bet this didn't help.
It's a shame she didn't live long enough to consolidate her place in music history.
