Amy Winehouse's father has slammed rumours the tragic singer would return to the stage in hologram form for a tour. Recent reports suggested the Rehab hitmaker would follow in the footsteps of late rappers Tupac Shakur and Eazy-E as the latest celebrity to come back to life with a virtual performance. A source recently told U.K.'s The Sun newspaper that billionaire entrepreneur Alki David apparently purchased a patent for the technology used to create holograms. The insider claimed, "The plan is that Amy will finally tour the world after failing to do so when she was alive. With an orchestra and her hologram, she can take to the stage and fans can see her perform her legendary hits." However, Winehouse's father Mitch, who owns the rights to his daughter's image, took to Twitter.com to shut down the speculation, writing, "No truth in the hologram story. Utter rubbish as usual." Amy Winehouse died in 2011 of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.
