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."

Truth    

MY BET, AMY WINEHOUSE DIED OF A SEIZURE. TONS OF ADDICTS END UP SUFFERING FROM SEIZURES AS A RESULT OF SNORTING DRUGS. RICK JAMES SUFFERED PLENTY OF THEM BUT ULTIMATELY DIED FROM CARDIAC AND PULMONARY FAILURE. YEP, AND THERE WERE DRUGS IN HIS SYSTEM AS WELL. BET THE SAME RESULT WILL COME FROM AMY'S AUTOPSY.

OK, just GOING TO REHAB does NOTHING if the addict isn't onboard with getting sober; Amy Winehouse "went" to rehab several times, but evidently never really believed or agreed that she was an addict with a problem that required actual sobriety.

And it's still possible that she didn't actually OD; she may have died from an ac***ulation of damage. You play like she did, eventually you're likely to PAY like she did. Wanna die tonight? Party on!

You conveniently forgot to mention that he also recorded "Parisite" Hilton, and thus has zero street cred.

What an idiot. Jumping to conclusions before hearing the facts. She had been clean for at least 3 weeks. A doctor saw her the day before she died and can confirmed she was clean and generally fit.

You should know better Scott. Shame on you!!!
