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."

She's baaaack    

Give it up man. I'm no great fan, but Amy Winehouse was one of those poor souls who could have gone to rehab a thousand times and the demons would have still won. I guess he figured she didn't suffer enough yet. RIP Amy. I hope you found the peace that eluded you in life.

Um, she had been in rehab - a few times as I recall and walked out each and every time. You can't help those that don't want help.

TMZ didn't like my last comment. Oh well, try again. Great insight coming from the pot calling the kettle black. 30M made a lot of dealers rich. Must have shared your nose candy with a lot of friends.

Storch is full of it. Hes not a big producer and there's no way he did 30 mil in coke. Just trying to make himself look cool. TMZ, you fell for it.

Poor Scott. When Amy Winehouse died he said that she should have gone to rehab. Pot. Meet. Kettle.
