Though in recent years she had become more known for her antics on and off stage more so than her musical talents.

She died on 23 July 2011 under “unexplained” circumstances and now become another member of the “27 Club” which includes: Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison.
