Amy, 27: Amy Winehouse and the 27 Club – Howard Sounes


When singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse died tragically on July 23, 2011, at the age of twenty-seven, she joined the infamous 27 Club, whose members include Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janix Joplin, Jim Morrison, and Kurt Cobain. Howard Sounes, author of Fab and Down the Highway, conducted interviews with more than 180 people, and his research yields new insights into the lives of the members of the 27 Club. Cutting through the record company PR and tabloid gossip to reveal the real Amy Winehouse, and with unprecedented access to friends and family, including Amy’s ex-husband Black Fielder-Civil, and her last boyfriend, Reg Traviss, Sounes reveals striking factors in common among Winehouse and the other artists who died so young. Amy, 27 will be published to coincide with the second anniversary of her death and with the lead-up to the twentieth anniversary of the death of Kurt Cobain.
