The Bad Girl of rock and roll, Ronnie Spector, has paid a warm tribute to Amy Winehouse.

Spector, who suffered her own demons with alcohol abuse in the 60s and 70s, knew all too well some of the trials and tribulations Winehouse was going through in her personal life.

Being known as the Bad Girl was a reference to her wild ways, though it was always accepted that Spector's ability to command a microphone was nothing short of amazing.

Speaking to Rolling Stone, the singer said that every time she looked at Winehouse she saw herself, from the way she dressed to the sound of her music.

She told the magazine: "When I saw her two weeks ago on TV and she was all drugged out, drinking and stuff, I said, 'Damn it, damn it, damn it, damn it! Don't become like I was 20 years ago! I cleaned up. You gotta clean up!'

"And two weeks later, she's dead. I'm devastated."

Spector, who is the former wife of the infamous music producer Phil Spector, said that when she was in her 20s she was also a "lost girl" who drank because she didn't what to do or where she was going.

Movingly she added that when Winehouse came to see her perform in London six months ago, both artists become emotional when Spector began singing Back to Black.

Since Winehouse tragically passed away her music has once again returned to the charts.

Her 2006 album Back to Black is currently at number two in the official album charts.
