Singer Amy Winehouse dead — joins long list of rockers dead at age 27

Amy Winehouse, the British singer famous for her sultry voice, substance abuse problems and fervent anti-rehab stance, was found dead in her London apartment Saturday, according to Sky News.

The 27-year-old’s public struggles with addiction to alcohol, heroin and cocaine left many concerned about her health in recent years.

Last month Winehouse, the singer of “You Know I’m No Good” and “Rehab,” cancelled a European tour after a number of “erratic” appearances.

Police are currently calling her death “unexplained.” (Miley Cyrus dating Amy Winehouse’s ex?)

A spokesman for Winehouse could not immediately confirm the singer’s death.

Winehouse joins a long list of singers who met their demise at age 27, including Nirvana’s Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.

She is survived by her father, mother, and older brother.
