Green Day Write Tribute Song for Amy Winehouse
Green Day have written a song that pays homage to Amy Winehouse. As reported by NME.com, the band penned the track, titled “Amy,” in response to the singer’s death last year. The song appears as the last track on iDos!, the second installment in Green Day’s forthcoming album trilogy.
Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong told NME.com: “I didn’t know [Winehouse]. I just thought it was a real tragic loss. I thought her music and her taste in music was so connected to old soul music … the original Motown and Otis Redding and Sam Cooke and things like that. And I think that was a major loss, because that was a generation’s connection to that, and this was someone who should be here now. I just felt really sad.”
