The Zutons 'Won't Cover Amy Winehouse'

by | 04 June 2008

THE ZUTONS singer Dave McCabe has dismissed suggestions that the band should cover an Amy Winehouse song, after she had a huge hit with her version of Valerie.

While McCabe admits to being a fan of the beehived singer, he maintains that his band will not be looking to record any of her material anytime soon, reports Showbiz Spy

Speaking to Gigwise, he said: "No, not at all. We wouldn't do it. It would be like a weird version of her songs. I think she's done ours good."

The band's saxophonist Abi Harding agreed with McCabe, saying that the Back to Black star does not need them to cover her songs.

Winehouse's recording of Valerie, a collaboration with producer Mark Ronson, was a major hit last year.

In related news, it has been claimed that Winehouse was unable to attend her husband's court hearing due to ill health, after a doctor was seen at the singer's house in north London.
