What many may not know about the late singer is her friendship with Philly’s own Questlove “Ahmir” Thompson, who paid tribute to Winehouse on Instagram on Sunday night.

In a 2012 interview, Questlove reveals that Amy Winehouse taught him a lot about jazz.

“She schooled me about Sarah Vaughn. I schooled her on J-Dilla,” he reflected at the time.“
“She’s a teacher. More than just my Skype buddy. She taught me a lot.”

She even wanted to start a supergroup with Questlove, Mos Def and Raphael Saadiq.

Could you imagine how epic that would have been?
