recalled Amy Winehouse
's 2008 Glastonbury
show – at which she punched a fan – during his band The Dead Weather
's performance at the festival today (June 26).
The band were playing on the Pyramid Stage
this afternoon when White
told the audience he had watched Winehouse
famously strike the fan as she performed on the same stage two years ago.
"It wasn't too long ago I saw Amy Winehouse
give someone a smack here for someone touching her hair," he said. "It's the same for Baby Ruthless
[The Dead Weather

's pseudonym] – if you touch her hair you'll get a smack." The Dead Weather
played songs from both their debut album 'Horehound'
and the recent follow-up 'Sea Of Cowards'
, with White
spending most of the set playing the drums.
He did, however, venture to the front of the stage to sing 'You Just Can't Win'
, earning cheers from the crowd, who were watching his fifth appearance at the event, having first played in 2002 with The White Stripes
, that's a true story," he said after playing the song. He added, noting the scorching weather, "You've got sun instead of rain!" White
finally donned a guitar to play 'Will There Be Enough Water?'
, sharing a microphone with Mosshart
during the closing number. The Dead Weather
played: '60 Feet Tall'
'Hang You From The Heavens'
'You Just Can't Win'
'So Far From Your Weapon'
'I Cut Like A Buffalo'
