She was no Janis Joplin

At hearing the news of her death, I can only say while Amy Winehouse was a unique and individual singer, she wasn't Janis Joplin. While they may have had similar lives and deaths, Janis had heart and soul, and a voice which could rock an audience. Just listen to her albums and especially the Big Brother and the Holding company ones. She was a singer. And Amy wasn't much but a one hit wonder. I'm sorry for her death but she made her choices.
