About this deal

It's now been announced that a biopic is in the works for Scar Tissue, the 2004 autobiography Kiedis penned about his early life and rise to fame with the Chilis. His autobiography is the story of a narcissistic characterless hustler, written by a narcissistic characterless hustler. Over 20 years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all the odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world.

And thanks for the insights into the 3 lifestyles of yours (sex, drugs, rock n roll) I knew very little about. It is instead a compelling story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption.Raised in the Midwest, he moved to LA aged eleven to live with his father Blackie, purveyor of pills, pot, and cocaine to the Hollywood elite. It was released in 2004 by Hyperion and authored by Kiedis with Larry Sloman, who compiled information and conducted interviews. All insane drug usage, clueless relationships with teenagers and women and pointless abstinence make a mess and leave an unpleasant taste, which lasts for the biggest part of the book for me.

No, Anthony wasn't cool enough to pen that quote himself, but he was pathetic enough to live it over and over and over again. In 1983, four self-described "knuckleheads" burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L. I do wish the best for them going forward, as they are such a massive part of my life – they are one thing (among many) that make my life worth living. I mean, he apparently suffers a severe case of LSS (that would be Lead Singer Syndrome for those of you unfamiliar with the term).Kiedis was his own worst enemy and yes its great that he's sober and doing well now, and at least he admits he is an egomaniac but damn. I do think that losing Hillel and worrying that you aren’t a good singer, and having to fire band members, and contracting hepatitis weren’t easy things. The tales from the early days of the Hollywood punk scene, the overdose death of Hillel Slovak, the bouts with rehab, the disappointments, the descriptions of lyrics and personal struggles . Ultimately, fans of the Chilis will find this book to be essential reading, a perfect accompaniment to Kiedis’ own lyrics and the documentary “Funky Monks” which captures the 1992 recording of Blood Sugar Sex Magik – the Chilis’ genre-busting seminal hit. And of course, what I love even more as a Chili Peppers fan is obviously getting to know Anthony Kiedis better.
