As talented as she may be, I doubt she'll see the new year, what with the drugs and all

She'll live, Liam. If only to be the next person to unfairly snag the Album Of The Year award from Kanye.

Yeah, I s'pose so. West needs to learn a bit of humility - I mean, didn't he have a tantrum JUST because one of his videos lost out on some award? And also, didn't he say that he should have got it because they spent alot of money on it?

Well, Liam, she did live to see 2008--and 2009. But if she is ever deemed worthy of the Hall, will the award be given posthumously?

of course she will, but she won't be able to attend her induction unless...

A great artist and talented (although a little self indulgent vocally IMHO), I think she needs to top "Back to Black"... if that ends up as the pinnacle of her career than I wouldn't say she belongs at all.

how can any one say yes

I think her voice is terrible, let alone her music. (Gag)

Winehouse has a throwback voice and music style. It's unfortunate how far down the gutter she has gotten to. Her music is well written and she should be given more credit.
Also, I think that she is one of those artists that influence so much. Winehouse helped the American public open up to female performers whose styles are more unique and open.

What happened to Ms. Winehouse is a perfect example of how the hedonism so prevalent in today's secular driven mass media leads otherwise talented people with much to contribute to go down a cesspool of self destruction in order to live up to some "cool" image that magazines like Rolling Stone constantly perpetuate. May her death be a lesson to all that drugs and hedonism in general are a dead end road to nowhere.

I wonder if Ms. Winehouse has ever heard the song "Kicks" by Paul Revere and the Raiders:

Don't it seem like...
Kicks just keep getting harder to find
And all your kicks ain't bringing you peace of mind
Before you find out it's too late
Girl, you better get straight

RIP Amy...

It will be interesting to see if Amy Winehouse will make the Hall. Her music was interesting, and the throwback to the girl groups of the 40s and 50s was something that has rarely been tried, especially in her era. On the other hand, her body of work is small and will forever be limited to what we have now (except for the inevitable exploitative "tribute" release of outtakes, rejected tracks, and the like). Of course, nothing will happen for almost another 20 years.

Rest in peace, Ms. Winehouse.

I loved her music.It is a crying shame she died. She had a whole future! Every sad to me.

Posted by Happy on Wednesday, 05.16.12 @ 19:17pm

every female artist with talent that has released and album since her death annoyingly comaired to her?(adele)


27 list?


too many Grammies?


her being credited by retarted critics for bringing on adele?


her being one of only about 5 people/acts of the 21st century that are even remotly eligible?


in conclusion, critics have been licking her dead c-u-n-t for a while now, and the hall loves late artists. There is not a single member of the 27 club not in the hall(- kurt, but he is a lock this year), so...

Do I think Amy will get in the RRHOF? Its too soon to tell. While I do think 'Back to Black' was one of the greatest records to come out last decade, her career and life were cut way too short. She did set an image and her own style, and I'm not sure who her followers are. She did kind of start the British soul revival, but I don't hear it going on today. We shall find out in 2027...

I don't give her much of a chance, the body of work being so small, her dying months, years were pretty damn rough, public and I think moving forward that might be a real hinder to more and more noms. Just tragic, she could have been a contender.
