Eyewitness News

Pet Shop Boys and Amy Winehouse? According to The Sun yesterday - now hotly denied - the boys wanted to help Amy finish her Bond theme tune after Mark Ronson gave up declaring her being in "No fit state". But I know where the story came from. I was there. I'm an eyewitness. Well, me and about 500 others. Last Saturday evening, Neil chatted away in front of an audience at the Corn Exchange in Brighton. As part of the Q&A at the end of the evening someone asked which female singer he'd like to work with. Straight away, he said "Amy Winehouse" and then went on to say, “She’s got a few things to sort out first but we like her very much.”

No mention of Quantum of Solace, Bond or anything other than really admiring her as a singer.

The theme tune isn't hers alone anyway. Mark Ronson is still doing it and, here's another eyewitness report, Jack White (of the White Stripes) has been drafted instead. And he's already laid down the vocal. Watch this space.
