I knew little about Amy Winehouse besides the pop-culture ridiculing of her addictions and public controversies. She died yesterday (drug overdose is the likely cause). Russell Brand (who is far more intelligent than comes across) pens a eulogy.

After reading it, I heard some of her songs. She’s good! With a lovely, jazzy, 60s voice.

(I’m not being nice because she’s dead. That, she deserved given her lifestyle — assuming she did die of drug overdose.)
