Mark Ronson’s heavy drinking past
Mark Ronson used to drink a bottle of Jack Daniel’s a night.
The music producer - famed for his collaborations with Amy Winehouse and Lily Allen - admits he “regrets” his past heavy drinking because his memories of shows he has performed at went by too quickly.
He said: “I’d take a bottle of Jack Daniel’s on stage. A few weeks into the tour I was drinking a whole bottle a night during the shows.
“I do regret that now, because all of it seemed to go by so fast, and I’m not sure if that was down to the adrenaline or the Jack Daniel’s.”
The 34-year-old musician claims he wants to cut down on drinking when promoting his upcoming album ‘Record Collection’ because he isn’t that kind of person.
He said: “I’m going to try not to do that when I tour this album.
“I mean, I love Slash, he’s one of my heroes, but I don’t want to be him. That’s not who I am.”
Mark also reveals he is not a fan of the celebrity lifestyle, and is perplexed why his famous friends court attention.
He told Live: “I don’t know how Amy and Lily do it. I’ve been with them, seen it first-hand, and it’s not something I would want to go near. I couldn’t stand the idea of photographers standing outside my house, following me around. I can’t understand who on earth could really want that.”
