The Life and Death of Amy Winehouse
Andy Morris, Christina Westover
Amy Winehouse's bright star burned out on July 23 2011.
Amy lived a rock-star lifestyle to the max, replacing an addiction to drugs with a battle against alcohol.
When she died, aged 27, she joined a long list of musicians whose lives had been tragically cut short at the same age - the likes of Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain and Jim Morrison.
She burst onto the scene with her debut album, "Frank", in 2003.
But it was her follow-up, "Back To Black", in 2006 that won her millions of fans right around the world as she won five Grammy Awards for the album.
Her chart success, though, would always be measured against a personal life full of trauma.
She wrote "Back To Black" about Blake Fielder-Civil, who she married in 2007. But they spent little time together as a married couple as Blake was sent to prison.
Theirs was a stormy romance, and despite divorcing they would remain in love with each other until she died. There were always plenty of other men in Amy's life, though.
In the end she died alone in her bed. A bodyguard kept her protected from the outside world, but nobody could protect her from herself...
