Mark Ronson Pays Tribute To Amy Winehouse

She made brilliant music, more than I’ll make in my entire life,” the super producer told the audience at the Old Royal Naval College in London.

Ronson went on to kick off his performance with a rendition of Winehouse’s hit track ‘Valerie’, with Zutons singer and original writer of the song Dave McCabe singing lead vocals.

The tribute continued during a short DJ set in the middle of the gig when the Bang Bang Bang producer dropped Winehouse’s iconic track ‘Rehab’ into his set.

With the full band back on stage, Ronson then went on to play a cover of Winehouse’s ‘Back To Black’ with The Rumble Strips’ lead singer Charlie Waller on vocals.

“It’s really lovely getting to play some music here for you tonight,” Ronson said, “That’s what makes everything better.

“I went to her service yesterday and there was a rabbi that spoke and he said that somebody’s life is measured in deeds and not years and that’s the best thing I heard yesterday.”

He added: “The genius in that woman and what she shared with us is pretty special. I’m not going to get all morbid on you. It’s just nice to be playing music to people who like good music. She is my sister, wherever she is.”
