Yesterday (July 26) at Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, England, Mark Ronson played a gig for students and die hard fans. During his set, Ronson took a few minutes to reflect on the passing of a talent, he refers to as family

“It’s really lovely getting to play some music here for you tonight. That’s what makes everything better,” he told the crowd at the Old Royal Naval College in Greenwich, England. “I went to her service yesterday and there was a rabbi that spoke and he said that somebody’s life is measured in deeds and not years and that’s the best thing I heard yesterday. …

“The genius in that woman and what she shared with us is pretty special. I’m not going to get all morbid on you. It’s just nice to be playing music to people who like good music. She is my sister, wherever she is.” (via MTV)
