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. Kiedis defies the rock star clichés, revealing that everything he has done has been part of a passionate journey–even his descent into drug addiction, which he transformed into art. Scar Tissue is a fascinating and moving account of a fast-lane life, addiction, and eventual recovery and redemption.
