Scott Storch: Winehouse Should Have Gone to Rehab

7/27/2011 6:10 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Scott Storch -- one of the BIGGEST producers in hip hop -- says Amy Winehouse "should have listened to her own song" ... and checked herself into rehab before she died. 072711_scott_storch_v2_still



Storch would know ... the man who's worked with Dr. Dre, Snoop, Beyonce, Xtina, P!nk and more battled a HUGE cocaine addiction over the years. In fact, Storch says he blew nearly $30 million on the drug before he finally sought help and kicked the habit.

On his way into Trousdale nightclub in Hollywood last night, we asked Storch about Amy ... and he told us, "Rest in peace ... Drugs are f**ked up ... I learned my own lesson too."

Wonder if Scott ever kicks himself for realizing he snorted away millions.

Could've bought a Kia with that kind of money.

$30 million on coke? Does Charlie Sheen accept this challenge?

Wow - that's some illuminating insight there, Scott. A junkie should've gone to rehab. Why didn't anyone else come up with that nugget of wisdom? Keep on truckin', son.

People could have had her court ordered into rehab. People could have had her watched 24/7 and kept her away from drugs and alcohol....BUT....

The bottom line is she was a famous star so she was handled different and now she is gone and hindsight is 20/20.

She'd been to rehab quite a few times. So what he's actually saying is that someone who went to rehab quite a few times should have gone to rehab. I suppose that's the problem with commenting about things you haven't bothered to read about - you run the risk of coming across as a cretin.

Except she was in rehab like a week or 2 before she died and was still being seen as an outpatient... And she'd been in rehab a dozen other times too.
