    Default Keith Richards gives Amy Winehouse advice

    Keith Richards throws stones at Winehouse

    BERLIN — Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has offered troubled singer Amy Winehouse some free advice on kicking the drug habit.
    "She should get her act together," the former junkie said during a round-table interview at the Berlin International Film Festival on Friday to promote Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones documentary "Shine a Light."
    The often-addled rocker paused, then added: "Apart from that, I have got nothing to say to the b****."
    Winehouse, 24, entered a London rehab clinic last month in hopes of kicking a destructive habit that has overshadowed her promising career.
    Stones frontman Mick Jagger, himself no stranger to pharmaceutical experimentation and resulting legal troubles, compared the drug problems of the present generation of Brit rock stars, such as Winehouse and Pete Doherty, to his early days when drugs became an integral part of the pop music scene.
    "When we were experimenting with drugs, little was known about the effects," Jagger said. "In our time there were no rehab centers like today. Anyway, I did not know about them."
    Sounding a bit like the 64-year-old grandfather that he is, the fitness fanatic said he couldn't understand how the younger generation, knowing the dangers of drug use, could still be users.

    I am beyond disappointed in Keith Richards. I mean, this is the man who had his blood fucking changed in a Swiss clinic so he could get a visa to the US. amn, what a hypocrite.

    I agree with Mick Jagger, I could've seen the appeal of drugs if I lived in the 60s but today... I can't understand why people take them.

    The best advice Keith Richards could give Amy: Don't snort your daddy's ashes.

    Keith Richards, bless his raddled old heart, is the very last person qualified to give any advice on clean living and sobriety. I'm amazed he's still alive.

    Hypocrisy? Definitely.

    On the other hand, as an improbably ALIVE elderly junkie, I bet he has some useful tips for those enthusiastic young junkies.

    He is old, he has hopefully learned a lesson, and is entitled to give his opinon. Just because he looks like an old junkie, doesn't mean he is a junkie.

    If Amy has any common sense, she'll not take advice from a washed up, druggy grandpa.

    I loved that interview with Jerry Hall when they asked her about how she tells her kids to stay away from drugs and she replied something along the lines of "they've met Keith Richards... they don't need a lecture from me".

    Maybe its just his "act'. Something that he is renowned for, but doesnt actually do. He is too smart a businessman to let that "infamy" slide by. He probably is as straight as a die, and lets us believe he is a drug addled crock.

    In Keith's defense, the Swiss clinic blood thing is an urban legend according to Snopes. And Keith also later said that the ashes thing wasn't true. He was, however, a terrible junkie - and if HE says that she needs to get her act together - well THAT should give Amy pause. Here's the legendary junkie Keith Richards telling you that you're a mess...if HE thinks you're a mess, you're a mess.

    And I would give anything to have Keith Richards call me a b****.

    Is it wrong to find Keith Richards really attractive?
