As Mitch Winehouse continues to promote his memoir about daughter Amy, he has revealed that the late singer wrote the track 'Rehab' in just three hours.
In an extract form, Amy, My Daughter published in Rolling Stone, Mitch talks about his first meeting with producer Mark Ronson and their works on tracks for Winehouse's acclaimed album 'Back To Black'.
"She told [Ronson] about the time at my house after she'd been in hospital when everyone had been going on at her about her drinking. 'You know they tried to make me go to rehab, and I told them, no, no, no.'", the excert reads.
It continues: "'That's quite gimmicky,' Mark replied. 'It sounds hooky. You should go back to the studio and we should turn that into a song.' She'd told me before she was planning to write a song about what had happened that day, but that was the moment 'Rehab' came to life."
He adds that Ronson suggested the track should have a"Sixties girl-group sound" to give the track a "jangly feel".
He wrote: "Amy was unaccustomed to this style – most of the songs she was writing were based around jazz chords – but it worked and that day she wrote 'Rehab' in just three hours."
Meanwhile, Mitch, has admitted that he still texts his daughter asking her to come home nearly a year after her death.
The singer's sudden death last year hit her father hard as he says he's still coming to terms with his loss and has moments when he can't accept that she is gone.
