The Rolling Stones, having set heroic standards for substance abuse in their careers, have a few words of wisdom for younger pop stars. Speaking in Berlin at the premiere of 'Shine a Light', Martin Scorsese's documentary on their concerts, former heroin addict Keith Richards, 64, expressed concern for the health of troubled singer Amy Winehouse. "She should get her act together," said Richards, who last year joked he has even snorted his father's ashes. If Winehouse continued taking drugs she would end up looking as "wrinkly and wasted" as him, he said.

And Mick Jagger, 64, who was jailed in 1967 for possession of drugs, said: "When we were experimenting with drugs, little was known about the effects. In our time there were no rehab centres – anyway, I didn't know about them."
