Keith Richards throws stones at Grammy Winner Amy Winehouse

Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards gave strong advice to the new Grammy winner Amy Winehouse on how to kick her drug habit. Winehouse is having a troublesome career that mirrors Rolling Stones’ early problems.
Rolling Stones legend Keith Richards gave an interview at the Berlin International Film Festival on Friday to promote the Rolling Stones documentary “Shine a Light” and gave some advice to the troubled singer Amy Winehouse.
Richards said to reporters:
"She should get her act together…Apart from that, I have got nothing to say to the b****."
Richards and his band mates are notorious for their past drug habits but they have turned around during the later stages of their careers and have been very successful with their world tour.
Winehouse has been in a drug rehab for the last month but she finally received some good news last night with five Grammy awards. If she wants to be successful like the Rolling Stones, she definitely has to kick her drug habits like Richards advised.
Richards' band mate Mick Jagger also offered comments about the drug problems faced by today's music stars and compared it to his early days.
Jagger said:
When we were experimenting with drugs, little was known about the effects…In our time there were no rehab centers like today. Anyway, I did not know about them.
He can’t understand the reasoning behind these troubled rock stars even after knowing the harmful dangers of the drugs.
Jagger, despite his early drug abuses, is currently healthy because of his strict fitness regimen.
I think their words of wisdom are valid for everyone, not just Winehouse. Will Winehouse and people like Pete Doherty listen to the British rock legends?
