Adele Paid Tribute To Amy Winehouse At Recent Concert

Amy Winehouse

(Radio.com) Adele took a time-out during her Boston show last week to pay tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, a major musical influence who would've turned 33 on Monday. As she sees it, there could have been no Adele without Amy.

"I feel like I owe 90 percent of my career to [Winehouse]," she told the crowd. "Because of her, I picked up a guitar and because of her, I wrote my own songs. The songs I got signed on were the songs that I wrote completely on my own - if it wasn't for her, that wouldn't have happened."

The 25 hitmaker added that she wishes Winehouse was still alive and making music. "I used to see her on TV or in magazine shoots with a pink electric guitar and I used to think she was the coolest mf-er on the face of the Earth," she said. Read more here.
