Amy Winehouse Is Back, Bigger And Not Any Better

Mark Ronson’s new band had their debut at the 100 Club in London last night, and they had a very special guest share the stage with them. Musical recluse Amy Winehouse performed “Valerie” from Ronson’s Version at the jazz cafe, although “performed” might be stretching it. Basically, she held a microphone and sometimes warbled sounds…
