Amy Winehouse Mark Ronson backs biopic on late singer despite her dad's outrage

According to the producer/musician, although the film is hard to watch, it brings back memories of his amazing friend.

Mark Ronson dedicated his latest album Uptown Special  to Amy Winehouse.

Mark, 39, who produced some of Amy Winehouse's most famous tracks – including RehabBack To Black and Valerie – also voice out his support for the biopic - Amy - out on the big screen now.

According to the producer/musician, although the film is hard to watch, it brings back memories of his amazing friend.

The thing that’s really good about the film is the way they show the lyrics to make sure you read every word and understand them, the genius of them,” says Ronson. “You also see she was a real jazz performer with the attitude that, ‘I write these songs, go out and sing them and that’s what I’m all about’.

"There was nothing pretentious about her, she had a gift and a talent and then she ended up becoming a runaway success that led to some unfortunate things happening.

“The really respectful thing about the movie is you are reminded why she was famous in the first place – she was a genius, that’s the stuff even I can forget.

“I forget that when I played her the piano chords to Back To Black she wrote the lyrics in an hour. I was blown away, people just don’t write lyrics like that any more.

“On Rehab as well, she wrote those lyrics in two hours and they’re so honest. Whoever thought there’d be a pop record about preferring to listen to Donny Hathaway than going to rehab, in 2006? Hers were the most open, honest lyrics you’re ever going to hear on pop radio.”
