Out of the Blue

R.I.P.: Singer Amy Winehouse Dies at Age 27. Some just shrug, but I find this very sad, as she wasted a lot of talent. And as is widely noted, she is other addition to the unfortunate "27 Club" (thanks nin). Years ago iconoclastic baseball statistician Bill James did a study that showed that the age of 27 was the most likely point for a player to have a standout season compared with the rest of his career, and in a later study found that player's defensive skills began to decline at the age of 27, as well, suggesting this is some sort of peak age. I'm not sure that there's a connection there, but every time the spate of dead 27 year-old musicians comes up, this pops to mind.

As someone that KNOWS addiction, and not from TV shows or text books, Some of you have NO Idea how clueless you sound. For some that are addicted, It would be like going to the cancer ward and telling them "DONT HAVE CANCER, JUST STOP HAVING CANCER"

It has been proven that a true addicts brain works differently by design , both mental and physical differences in the brain. And yes, you could say just never start. Like most addicts, a beer at 17 or 18 was harmless for 98% of the population, but for that 2% with a true disorder, that triggered the brain in a life long dependency on a chemical.

And to be famous, and surrounded by mostly "hanging on" and " posse"
of losers living off your dime, not really caring about you, and having too much money, it is the worse combination for a diseased brain to be in. I feel sorry for her, if she had TRUE friends around her she would have had half a chance.

And to all you people talking Drugs this , drugs that. If Alcohol were invented Tomorrow , it would be classified worse then crack, heroin,weed and all the rest of them.
