The Scenestar is sad to report the passing of one of our favorite artists. Amy Winehouse was found dead today in London at the age of 27. The five time Grammy winner last made a Southern California appearance at The Roxy Theatre and Coachella 2007 in the Gobi tent on Friday. Amy Winehouse cancelled shows at the Wiltern in 2007 and was denied a work visa when booked to headline Coachella on Saturday in 2009 which also included a scheduled performance at that year's Grammy awards. She still appeared via satellite but was replaced by M.I.A. at Coachella. More details will be posted regarding her passing as we get them Scenestar readers. R.I.P. Amy Winehouse 1983 - 2011.

Sad news this Thanksgiving for Throbbing Gristle fans. Via their website, Throbbing Gristle have announced in a statement that Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson has passed away in his sleep in his home in Bangkok, Thailand. Peter was also a member of Psychic TV, Coil and part of the trio left of Throbbing Gristle after Genesis P-Orridge left earlier this year which caused the band to later form X-TG for their remaining European tour dates. No word yet if they will continue performing at X-TG with the loss of Peter "Sleazy" Christopherson but be thankful if you saw him live with Throbbing Gristle last year at Coachella and at the Ricardo Montalban Theatre. A statement from the industrial band below at the jump:
