Musician pays tribute following 27-year-old's death this afternoon (July 23)
The musician, who co-produced Winehouse‘s second and final album ‘Back To Black’ in 2008, told BBC News the singer was “like a sister to me”.
“She was my musical soulmate,” he said. “This is one of the saddest days of my life.”
Winehouse was found dead at her north London flat at around 4pm (BST). It’s being widely reported she passed away after a suspected drug overdose, although the official police line is that her death is still unexplained.
Meanwhile, Faces are dedicating their gig at Hurtwood Park in Surrey tonight to their “talented friend”.
Winehouse‘s label Universal also paid tribute in a statement that read: “We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy‘s family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”
