A wonderful voice - so talented. She was a fragile soul. We will miss her.

I was shocked and saddened to hear the news when I first woke this afternoon.

So sad, such a firey bright, young talent snuffed out. Awesome singer, soul filled with pain. R.I.P. Amy.

A powerful talent that burst out of an apparent insecure figure. We can only guess what held her back from taking charge but it's worth to take a pause now for the less talented who are challenged as well.

And shame on virtually every news outlet for the insensitive reporting of Amy's ultimate demise. Troubled, or normal without the tools to handle such a level of talent?

Rest in peace sweet Girl.

Another member of the 27 Club. I wish she could have gotten help but for years her club membership seemed guaranteed. I wish she didn't join but may she rest in peace with Jimi, Kurt, Janice, and Jim and may they give her a warm welcome to the club when she arrives.

R.I.P Amy. And as much as I love this album, let's not forget the "Frank"cd as well. If it's not equal to"Back to Black" then it's better. Great talent.

While it's sad when anyone dies, the cause has not been determined yet. While she did exhibit self-destructive tendencies in the end she is responsible for her actions and their consequences. I will miss her music, but I would have passed on the music if she had gotten help.

She was one of the many souls of pain, sensitive as an exquisite piece of china, a genius that perhaps was fed by her many demons. Certain artists retreat to art because life as it is is too much to take. You know the theory - neurotics are those who cannot channel their crises into art. Unfortunately channeling it does not do away with the sorrow which is too deep to know. Hell, even so sober minded a man as T.S. Eliot said near the end of his life that if he had to do it all again he would not be a poet because the emotional toll was not worth it.
I had hoped against hope she would be able to exorcise those demons and whether or not she made another CD is immaterial. Some of those who mourn mourn because her pain reminds them too much of their own pain, their own loss, their own sense of aloneness. We have her music, that soulful voice, at once plaintive and emotive with emotions that were never cheap because they ran so deep.

to Amy's family.......I am so sorry for your loss. Maybe she was out of your control and you did the best you could. The world will never know.
Amy's music will carry on for generations. A tragic loss for you as well as her adoring fans.

What was she thinking????????????????????

I still can not seem to stop crying!! This world was not worthy of the incredible beauty and sheer vulnerability of her soul! Instead of the constant put-down she received from the media etc. they should've just let her sing. Instead all she received was constant ridicule! Now she's gone but we are the true losers. She was the 'Billy Holliday' of this will be many long years before we see another genuine talent like hers...if ever!?
R.I.P. Amy

When I first saw the video for "In My Bed," I knew that this girl was going to become a household name...a global household name, that is. When her persona evolved into the bee-hive hairstyle and eyeliner borrowed from the early 60's...(my Mom were the same hair and makeup for years long after the fad faded)...I became addicted to her videos and music. It was difficult to avoid all of the tabloid crap focusing on her off-stage behavior and paid little attention to her music. At that point I became concerned that she would never be able to overcome the pitfalls that many celebrities seem to get trapped in. Every time that I would see another pic it seemed that it was only a matter of time. But still I held onto hope that she would fight back and WIN! Hearing of her death was one of those moments that I will remember where I was and what I was doing at that time. Rest In Peace, babygirl! You're a legend now!!
