Winehouse snubbed in list of his favourite bands

Posh boy producer Mark Ronson has revealed his top 99 musical artistes of all time to The Guardian music online, which is currently being edited by the Kaiser Chiefs.

Ronson, who made himself out to be a properly obnoxious little git on Never Mind The Buzzcocks the other week, picked the following male-dominated, 50 quid man list of artistes. Jamie T provides the innovation - but where's his old pal Amy Winehouse, eh?

Says Ronson of the list, "I don't know if I still stand behind this, but here we go. And it shouldn't be listed numerically, as it falsely bestows some sort of order on it."
