The Red Hot Chili Peppers are that rare breed of rock band. Critically lauded and popularly embraced by millions of fans, their albums consistently sell into the stratosphere - their CD Californication sold over 13 million copies alone. Now in 'Scar Tissue', Anthony Kiedis defies the rock star clichés. In his telling, we can see everything he has done has been part of a passionate journey. Kiedis is a man 'in love with everything' - the darkness, the death, the disease. Even his descent into drug addition was a part of that journey, another element that he has transformed into art.

If you like sex, drugs, and rock-n-roll (particularly the drugs part), you'll like this book. I was hoping for more about the music but I guess Anthony Kiedis can write about whatever aspect of his life that he wants. Read full review
