As lead singer and songwriter for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis has lived life on the razor's edge. Much has been written about him, but until now we've only had his songs as clues to his experience from the inside. In Scar Tissue, Kiedis proves himself to be as compelling a memoirist as he is a lyricist, giving us a searingly honest account of the life from which his music has evolved.

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 addiction was a part of that journey; another element that he has transformed into art. Scar Tissue is a fascinating account of a fast-lane life, addiction, and a moving story of eventual recovery and redemption.

    " I'm no RHCP fan, nor am I an Anthony Kiedis fan. I can't say this book helped me appreciate either in the end. I'm always fascinated by drug bios that delve into the depth of despair and this book doesn't disappoint on that front, but I'm also always looking for a good look into the music in a rock bio and felt like it all took a serious back seat to the drug abuse. I suppose that's par for the course here, but all I can say is it just ended up not being very enjoyable as a result. "

    " An easy read. Great if you love looking behind the scenes into a musicians lifestyle. It really explains a lot about the Chili Peppers. "

    " Riminded me of iggy Pop - but it is pretty much a typical story of self-destruction + rejunination so typical in American Pop music (ok, but he was grunge) "
