Oh all right.............. in my view, her best-ever moment. Still relatively unknown, she duetted with the legend that was Teddy Pendergrass (who helped her - a lot - in her early days) on this. Sadly, I can't find a live video (I know they performed live together several times).

so do we actually know what she died of or are we speculating as usual?

Well that's it in a nutshell. But at least it gives people the chance chance to tell us how perfect they and share their wisdom about (not to say judge) other people's lives...even if most of it is just idle supposition. I love the internet, me.

speculating on a long documented history of drug and alcohol abuse, sad either way, but I was never a huge fan. The outpouring of grief on twitter is pathetic, it made me log off for the majority of the day. Comments like a massive loss to the music industry? really? she hadn't recorded anything since 1997 and the last time I saw her live she was either stoned/pissed and couldn't remember her words.

Of course we're specualting mate , i'm going for a coronary seizure brought on by a massive dose of cocaine over a short period of time with a large volume of alcohol , plus maybe a downer such as Diazapam or Qualuude which would have stopped her ticker .

I could be wrong though .

She was found in the bath. Not sure if this extra info alters your speculation

Radio said this morning she was found with fluid in her lungs, under the water level of a bath, BUT they won't say more until results of a toxicology report in weeks to come.

Anyway, as was suspected re; a film title change.......

Ah **** it.

Post away.

General consensus on here is that if you have a talent, whether great or mediocre and chuck it away by abusing yourself over years and years then it's your fault.
