The Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards has said he has given Pete Doherty drug advice.

Richards revealed he sees similarities between his own drug use and that of Doherty and Amy Winehouse.

Amy Winehouse and Pete take drugs for the same reasons we did,” he told Anothermag.com. “All I’d say is take your drugs in your spare time, if that’s what you want to do, but don’t mix it up.”

Richards added that he had personally warned Doherty over the dangers of continuous drug use.

“I’ve had a word with Pete about this but it don’t make any difference,” he said. “If you mix it up you’re just gonna fall like a million others. I’ve seen too many friends gone that way.”
