Based off all of the stories I’ve read about him told by friends, he seems like the friend I needed in middle school 😆. All joking aside, Jimmy is what got me through my Hell-like years of middle school. I read that even though he had a bit of a temper, he was one of those people that would never give up on you and stick to like glue if he found a kindred spirit in you. And that he was very dedicated and an overall fun, funny, and sweet person. My friends like to joke around and say that I am the reincarnated version of him. Lol

She is also a well-known member of the 27 Club, as she overdosed on alcohol at age 27.

People can blab about how much she self-destructed all they want to and most don't even understand how deep her issues went. In my opinion her death was more tragic than Whitney's, funny how everyone was so sad about her death and blamed Bobby and no one complained about how she killed herself by still taking the drugs after so many years not even bothering to stop even a little for her daughter. Amy had more musical abilities than Whitney, Whitney was a great singer but that's about it, people don't understand she had absolutely no part in the writing or composing her music. Everything she had in her life was handed to her, Amy came from a broken home and had mental issues but everyone crusified her for her problems.
