Amy Winehouse forming new bandJuly 3rd, 2010 - 5:47 pm ICT by ANI
London, July 3 (ANI): British singer Amy Winehouse is teaming up with hip-hop band The Roots’ drummer Questlove and guitarist Raphael Saadiq to form a new band.
According to Questlove, real name Ahmir Thompson, the unnamed band is finding it difficult to take out time to record any tracks due to the Back to Black singer’s ongoing visa problems.
She was recently denied entry to the US on the grounds of possessing cannabis and an assault the star was later cleared of.
But Thompson is adamant the band will soon begin work on new music.
“The group will definitely happen. It’s just the closest she can come to the States is Jamaica. I’m off to France soon so I’ll see if she’s up for discussing it over dinner. We’re Skyping the s**t out of each other,” the Daily Star quoted Thompson as saying. (ANI)
