'Rehab' band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings pay tribute to 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.”
