Ian Brown doesn't think Pete Doherty should go to jail.
The former Stone Roses frontman - who spent four months in Strangeways prison for allegedly threatening a stewardess on a flight in 1998 - insists being behind bars won't stop Pete from taking drugs.
He told the NME: "Pete Doherty really isn't going to get any benefit in prison. A lot of screws are dealers. In Strangeways prison they used to throw drugs over the wall hidden inside dead pigeons. You can get an ounce
of weed inside dead pigeons.
"My advice to Pete is to get off the class A drugs first."
Pete, who is currently in rehab at Clouds House clinic, Wiltshire, was ordered to quit drugs or face a prison sentence last month.
Next month, he will appear in court to be sentenced for driving illegally while in possession of crack cocaine, heroin, ketamine and cannabis.
Ian, 44, also says he feels sorry for Amy Winehouse, because she will one day regret having so many tattoos and looking like a "sailor".
He added: "I feel really sorry for Amy, with all those tattoos. In two years' time she'll be like, 'Why have I turned my arm into a sailor from the 1940s?' Am I a fan? Not really. I think there's loads of black girls out there who sing like her, but are better - but that's the way the world is."
