  • Suggs penned this poignant song in tribute to Amy Winehouse after meeting the songstress in Dean Street, Soho, London, shortly before her death in 2011. "Three or four days before she died, I saw her walking down Dean Street with a guitar over her shoulder. She said: 'All right, nutty boy?' as she walked past," he recalled to The Guardian. "It made me laugh because I'm 55 f---ing years old, but it's such a Winehouse thing to say. 'All right, nutty boy?' It really got me. What a sad thing."
  • Suggs told the Mail On Sunday's Event magazine he used to see Amy Wimehouse round his neck of the woods all the time. "I'd started writing the song before she died, but it was such a sad death," he added. "When you stop doing everything, the drinking and the drugs, and then suddenly start again it can be too much for the system, especially when you're that delicate."
