Amy Winehouse joins the group of singers who have died at age 27

The singer Amy Winehouse joined this Saturday called 'Club 27', the group of young music stars who have died at the age of 27, like Jimmy Hendrix or Janis Joplin, as having persistent difficulties to cope with fame . Winehouse, who had constant problems with drugs and alcohol, died Saturday at his flat in north London, although at the moment are unknown death details.

Hendrix died at 27 in London in 1970 after drinking a cocktail of wine and sleeping pills, while the Rolling Stone Brian Jones drowned in a swimming pool in 1969. In the 'Club 27' is also Janis Joplin, who died in 1970 of an alleged heroin overdose. The group is integrated by Jim Morrison, who died in 1971 of heart failure and the band Nirvana guitarist Kurt Cobain, who shot himself in 1994.

The news of the death of the singer began to move quickly through Twitter after Sarah Brown, wife of former British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said that Winehouse's death was a "very sad news." "A great talent, an extraordinary voice, a tragic death, condolences to the family," wrote Sarah Brown on Twitter.
