In his first performance since Amy's untimely death, Mark Ronson played the hit song he and Winehouse so perfectly collaborated on for his 2007 album Versions. Performing alongside Roson onstage at the Greenwich Summer Sessions last night was Dave McCabe of the Zutons (who penned the original version of "Valerie") and Amy's backup singers and band that had been touring with her in her most recent stretch of performances. Of Winehouse, Ronson said "Amy was my musical soulmate & like a sister to me."
Saw this little excerpt today in a 'popbitch' email that I subscribe to. I guess the point is that people can say what their want about their relationship with Amy, now that she is not around to comment.
"Mark Ronson's gesture to make a tribute to
Amy Winehouse at his gig this week, and
calling her his musical sister was no doubt
We couldn't forget, however, what Winehouse
herself thought of his namechecking her,
writing this last September, after he
discussed how he "created the tracks" for
Back to Black on Jools Holland's show.
"Ronson you're dead to me; one album I
write and you take half the credit - make a
career out of it? Don't think so BRUV."
