Interview by Maureen Paton, Rock's Backpages Audio, 13 June 2007

After talking slightly sheepishly about his "mid-Atlantic drawl", Ronson recalls his family background; growing up surrounded by rock'n'roll and rock musicians; being tucked in bed by Robin Williams; his fondness of vintage music and production; producing Amy Winehouse; being a performer and DJ — at P Diddy's birthday party! — and being a school chum of Sean Lennon's.
