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.

Well written and detailed raw account of Kiedis’ life and influences including his young introduction to drugs and sex. Was hoping to read more about his transformation to a more ‘spiritually enlightened’ person which I felt was touched on only very briefly. Amazing band headed by an incredibly talented lyricist, an addict that has been open about the battle to stay clean.
