Amy Winehouse update.

Her death has been ruled inconclusive by the coroner and the world will have to wait for the usual month long analysis of the toxicology. At the end of the day it still only means one thing: The world has witnessed yet another great talent gone all too soon. When an old blues cat passes it is sad yet they got the opportunity to release a body of work that we can all look back on and admire it at the breadth and greatness of its prolific strength, Ms. Winehouse will not be afforded that opportunity.
The work she left us is stunning to say the least but as a fan I would have preferred to hear her release much, much more, even bad stuff, because I would bet the next pay check I get that she would have struck upon some amazing stuff and the world would have been better for it.
Those who will be responsible for ultimately milking this tragedy I only hope one thing: do not turn her great talents into a mockery, please!
Either handle the things the world has not heard with care and due diligence or don’t release them into an endless array of re-mix mess. She deserves better and in the long run your candor and good judgement will only honor the memory of a great songstress who millions miss.
I am going to go listen to Valerie and might even shed a tear or two.
