amy-winehouse found dead at 27

Amy Winehouse – found dead

Troubled soul singer Amy Winehouse, who had been attempting a comeback after a few years battling drug and alcohol addiction, has been found dead in her London home, according to British media reports.

Sky News and BBC reported police sources as confirming the 27-year-old singer’s death.

London police issued a statement Saturday saying an unnamed 27-year-old female had been pronounced dead at the scene at a home in north London.

“Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained,” said Metropolitan Police.

Erratic performances forced tour cancellation

The singer showed up nearly an hour late for a concert in June at Belgrade’s Kalemegdan Park and disappointed the crowd of approximately 20,000 by stumbling about, mumbling through her songs and occasionally exiting the stage — leaving her bewildered band and backup singers performing in her place.

The concert was to be the first of a 12-date tour, which was cancelled soon after.

Winehouse rose to fame in 2006 with the success of her sophomore album Back to Black, which featured the smash hit song Rehab. In 2008, she won five Grammy Awards — including best new artist and record of the year — but her ongoing struggles with substance abuse, erratic onstage behavior, legal battles and other personal problems have overshadowed her musical achievements.

Though she was flooded with a variety of musical accolades over the years, the performer made headlines in Britain and worldwide for her increasingly erratic behavior, disheveled appearance, poor performance at recent concerts and substance abuse problem.

Winehouse also had a tumultuous marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, whom she married in 2007. They had many public spats, which often turned violent. The couple divorced in 2009.

She had also sought help for psychiatric and alcohol and drug abuse problems.

Dosh

Dosh grew up in the Twin Cities. At a young age he also took piano lessons and then discovered FM radio in the early ’80s. Dosh began drumming at age 15. By the time he left home for Simon’s Rock College at age 16, he had decided music would likely be his profession, however, he subsequently got a degree in creative writing.

Throughout the ’90s, he played with a number of bands on the East Coast. When he moved back to Minneapolis in 1997, he started his own band, as he had begun to compose his own music. He also worked at his alma mater, Lake Country School, teaching percussion, driving the school bus, and assisting classroom teachers. Immersing himself in the local scene, Dosh played with many bands over the next five years: Nasty Goat, Best Red, Animals Expert At Hankering, Iffy, Vicious Vicious, “T,” and Lateduster; all this time, recording tape after tape of original music on a 4-track machine.

Dosh’s work with Andrew Broder in Lateduster and Fog gave him an experience that helped him begin to perform solo. In 2002, he released his debut recording, Dosh CD, which he had recorded himself, mostly in his basement. The CD developed a following in the local Twin Cities scene.

After playing many shows, City Pages voted him second on their annual “picked to click” list.

Dosh CD was re-released internationally in September 2003 on anticon. records, and was reviewed in the Village Voice, Urb, Flaunt, Xlr8r, The Big Takeover, and a number of online magazines.

Dosh is also known for the incorporation of his family life into his work. His EP, Naoise is named after his son. On “Naoise” is “Happy Song for Tadgh,” a reference to Naiose’s half-brother, Tadgh. He is also known for writing a song for his future wife at the time called, “I Think I’m Getting Married.”
