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.

Anthony's tale of his life , is incredibly hard hitting in a brutally honest way, that gives me alot of respect towards him in unearthing it to the public as well respecting his journey (ups and down) in sobriety.
Not only that, his life has been an incrediable story that I could not put down and shows a new light on him that I never realised until now. I human light, not a egotistical one. A human that made mistakes and acknowledges them and has built a new foundation upon it.
I always enjoyed RHCP's music. However, Anthony Kiedis' reminds me why many people don't like Americans.
His life account of sex, drugs and rock and roll was surprisingly annoying. I was not prepared for that.
RHCP fans will likely enjoy this book. They should. Enjoy.
For everyone else, my used toilet paper (available in paperback only) is demonstrably better than Scar Tissue.
If you want to really understand why I didn't enjoy this book. Read it, because what doesn't kill you makes you stronger.
Well worth the 500 page read (Wish it went for longer to be honest).
I was never a Chili Peppers fan before this book...now, I am 100% in. I cannot stop listening to them and admire their approach to sharing their gift with the world.

I would have liked to read more about his time with the band and his songwriting processes! His personal connection to spiritualism is really intriguing but his writing is again distracted by the endless tales of heroin and cocaine use.
A bit disappointing!!
he find a girl, he dump her, he goes on a drugs binge for days, weeks or sometimes months….repeat…this is the book ! nothing else apart for some trips in Thailand and India...
Not to mention that towards the end of the book he talks about this girl who, even if she tries to get money out of him using a solicitor, he goes back with her only realising later on that "maybe she's not my girl". Dude ! you are in ur mid-30 and it took u so long to understand that ?!!
Save your money and get another book.
