I never bought any of Amy's records (yes, I still call them records), but she had style and a lot of talent. Too bad she also had some other things in excess. Very sad to see a life - any life - thrown away. This will probably sound bad, but I don't care: people like her piss me off. People with addictive personalities are selfish. It's all about them. It has to be that way, they can't be any other way. It's either a cure or a quick death. There are really no other roads to travel...and the only way to a cure is to look beyond yourself and realize that OTHER PEOPLE MATTER. It's not all about you.
Sorry, that's all probably nonsense. What do I know about it anyway? I've never been an addict or an alcoholic; I'm also not a psychiatrist. I do know a good song when I hear it, though. Here's one of Amy's, the song "Help Yourself," from her first CD "Frank." So long Amy...you should have stuck around longer.
