Though the investigation into the death of singer Amy Winehouse is not yet concluded, some savvy entrepreneurs have already found ways to profit from her demise. “My bookings have almost doubled since Saturday,” Sheryl Green of Ealing said Tuesday. “It’s nothing I sought, but I am benefitting from it.” Green has been performing in clubs and bars as an Amy Winehouse impersonator since 2007. “You might not think there’s a lot of money in it,” Green said, but added that she does “quite well.” So enthusiastic is Green about her craft that she formed a guild of sorts for other performer/ impersonators. Among its members, Green counts at least a dozen Winehouse mimics _ two of whom are men who perform hits such as “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good” as part of a drag show. Green said she is also aware of several women in the adult entertainment business who style themselves after Winehouse, but said firmly that her guild does not include “that sort of impersonation.” Man chills out in B. morgue for 21 hours JOHANNESBURG _ A South African man awoke to find himself in a morgue fridge _ nearly a day after his family thought he had died, a health official said Monday. Health department spokes- man Sizwe Kupelo said the man awoke Sunday afternoon, 21 hours after his family called in an undertaker who sent him to the morgue after an asthma attack. Morgue owner Ayanda Maqolo said he sent his driver to collect the body shortly after the family reported the death. Maqolo said he thought the man was around 80 years old. “When he got there, the driver examined the body, checked his pulse, looked for a heartbeat, but there was nothing,” Maqolo said. But a day after staff put the body into a locked refrigerated compartment, morgue work- ers heard someone shouting for help. They thought it was a ghost, the morgue owner said. “I couldn’t believe it!” Maqolo said. “I was also scared. But they are my employees and I had to show them I wasn’t scared, so I called the police.” After police arrived, the group entered the morgue together. “I was glad they had their fire- arms, in case something wanted to fight with us,” Maqolo said. He said the man was pale when they pulled him out. “He asked, ‘How did I get here?’” Maqolo said. The health department said the man was then taken to a nearby hospital for observation and later discharged by doctors who deemed him stable. ess.eal, by The Associated Pr. is r.S., by Emily Popek; B A. is B It’s hard to tell what’s true these days.
