Amy Winehouse last moments

Amy Winehouse, dead at 27, was only two albums into a career, and a life, that would be derailed by alcohol, drugs and bad choices. Winehouse was no manufactured pop commodity. She was a genuine musician: one of the very small handful of British singers whose version of American soul music had a gutsiness and flair far beyond what could be studied.

Winehouse's 2003 debut album, Frank, made when she was still a teenager, introduced her as a tangyvoiced , scat-singing disciple of Erykah Badu, Esther Phillips, Dinah Washington and Sarah Vaughan.

Like many pop newcomers, Winehouse showed off a little, swooping around melismatically when she didn't have to.Winehouse has had a difficult relationship with drugs and alcohol since her rise to stardom with the song Rehab in 2006. Entertainment blogger Perez Hilton is reporting that drugs were not involved in the singer's death and that Winehouse died from a massive seizure.

'The hardcore drugs completely wrecked Amy's nervous system,' an insider allegedly told Hilton. 'She gave up all that a while ago but she was still drinking heavily, which would bring on seizures.'

The same source claims Winehouse had been regularly suffering from seizures and that she had ignored doctors' advice to stop drinking.
