In 1983 four self-described 'knuckleheads' burst out of the neo-punk rock scene in LA with their own unique brand of cosmic hard-core mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all the odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. Though the band has gone through many incarnations, Anthony Kiedis, the group's lyricist and dynamic lead singer, has been there for the whole rollercoastar ride. Scar Tissue far transcends the typical rock biography, because Anthony Kiedis is anything but a typical rock star. It is instead a searingly honest memoir - a compelling story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption. It is a story that could only have come out of Hollywood.… (mais)

When I saw this book on sale, I knew that I had to have it!
It did not disappoint either! Anthony Kiedis gets right down to the gritty details of his life, from his childhood which will floor you! I was rapt while getting this glimpse into who he is down to the core.
When I finished the book I had a couple of thoughts. First, did he really live that life?! Secondly, is he still sober today?
What an incredible life to have said you survived from and he is still under fifty. Yet, I get it too. Just most people don't get to walk away so unscathed from that life. Then it hits you like a truck! BAM! Scar Tissue. Couldn't put a more appropriate title on a book.
Whether you like this band, or even Anthony Kiedis, you should read his story. It will open your eyes to the celebrity world a lot more, while telling you about this guy's eye-opening journey through life. ( )

Scar Tissue takes you through the life of Anthony Kiedis, the lead singer and songwriter of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. The plot is riveting taking the reader through the struggles and hard time he has faced through drug addiction and coming of age. The text is intriguing considering it is surrounded on heavy drug use and sexual context. The perspective gives insight about Los Angeles in the 1980s to 1990s which is why I love this book. ( )

moooolto interessante e avvincente. Anthony Kiedis si racconta liberamente arrivando alle porte dell'inferno ( )

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. ( )

When this book was originally released, I tried to read it. I had been a fan of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Kiedis seemed like a reasonably interesting guy. I didn't get very far. He started talking about living with his dad, starting to do drugs at 11, and having sex with his father's girlfriend when he was 12. With his father's permission. And with the girlfriend's enthusiasm. It was all told with such a self-satisfied air, and I didn't think I could stand a whole book like that, so I put it down. I decided to try again now with the audio version, which is read by Rider Strong of "Boy Meets World" fame.

What I found out is that the insufferableness comes down by small measures as Kiedis gets older. There are still far too many interludes that have no point except to tell the story of some girl he met and had amazing sex with (often in a hallway or stairwell or doorway or something). Women and drugs (not necessarily in that order) have clearly been the driving forces in his life. Music came later, and interestingly enough, touring was the only time he would reliably remain sober. Many cycles of rehab, relapse, trying to kick the habit on his own, relapse, etc., go on once the band has achieved some success.

The good: Once he really becomes an addict, he doesn't romanticize the experience. Using dirty needles, committing desperate acts, and manipulating people were all too common, and he doesn't shy away from telling those stories. It's interesting to hear one member's take on a lot of the big events in the band's history.

The bad: The production quality of the audio book is pretty abysmal; you can hear pages being shuffled and other background noise like that. Also, Rider Strong does the world's worst accents (Irish was particularly bad), and he doesn't consistently know how to pronounce words. The book is over-long in general; like a lot of people, Kiedis thinks more is more when it comes to stories from his life. ( )
