She may have started out jazzy with her 2003 debut album, “Frank,” but once she shifted into more soulful territory on 2006’s “Back to Black,” Amy Winehouse went from being the talk of the U.K. to an international sensation, breaking into the top 10 of Billboard’s Hot 100 Singles chart with “Rehab.” Although Winehouse’s voice was a marvel, and both her look and attitude regularly led to press coverage, she also made more than a few headlines with her intense personal relationships and her tendencies toward excess.

Alas, it was the latter that ultimately led to her downfall β€” when she died on July 23, 2011, the coroner’s inquest (via the BBC) revealed that her blood alcohol level was more than five times the legal limit for driving in the U.K..

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
