Hard rock and heavy metal musicians around the world are mourning the loss of Amy Winehouse.

The 27-year-old singer was found dead in her London apartment at 4:05 p.m. GMT. There's no word on the exact cause of death, but Winehouse had been struggling with drug addiction for many years.

Ted Nugent: "B sure to tell ur children that Amy Winehouse suicide is insane stupid"

Brian Fair (SHADOWS FALL): "Heard Amy Winehouse died today. I once ran into her in a hotel lobby in London. It was 7am. I was heading out to the airport she was just coming in like a trainwreck. She grabbed my hair and was like 'I fuckin love ur hair.' With spittle flying. I thought she was a homeless person. I brushed her off and went and washed my hair. RIP."
