Sad news spread quickly yesterday of Amy Winehouse's membership into the 27 club when she was found dead in her London home. The music video for her heart-aching Back To Black track "Tears Dry On Their Own" was shot in Los Angeles, and "directed by David LaChapelle on 22 May 2007," according to Wikipedia. Clearly she's prancing Hollywood Blvd in addition to "footage of Winehouse making her way through Echo Park and in a dim hotel room...Grand Hotel at 1479 S La Cienega Blvd."
