Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings issue statement on Amy Winehouse
Following the sad passing of Amy Winehouse today — the singer died of unknown causes at the age of 27 — Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings (and the entire Daptone Records Family) released a statement lamenting her loss. The band, who backed the singer in two of her most popular tracks, “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good,” issued the following message: “We are very sad to have lost Amy Winehouse today. She was one of a kind and we were fortunate to have had the chance to make music with her. She was always gracious and a pleasure to work with in the studio and on the road. She brought a lot of people joy with her voice and her irreverent personality. It is a tragedy that she was taken from us so soon when she had much more music to give.”
