Views Read Edit View history. He lives in the Los Angeles, Ca. But don’t worry, he leaves him bus money to get school and a skateboard to get home – the skateboard making him a better more awesome skater than the famed Lords of Dogtown, by the way.

Written in a simple yet honest voice, this book is not only completely entertaining in a voyeuristic way, but actually surprisingly moving at times I finished Scar Tissue a few days ago, but I keep wanting to pick it up and find there are still a few more chapters for me to read. Both were self-destructive semi-insane nihilists whose appetite for excess drove them to the edge Morrison slipped over while Kiedis crawled back to write this engaging, moving testimonial.

We were on live TV in front of millions of people, and it was torture. The writing in this is terrible. Looking for beautiful books? And of course, wha Even though I can only relate to a fraction of what is in this book, seeing how my own life is so radically different from that of the author, I loved every minute of reading this book.

This is an incredible band Later on, he reveals that he was not actually clean, as he claimed at the time, during the late-nineties Californication era of the band’s existence.

For nearly four decades, David Sedaris has faithfully kept a diary in which he records his thoughts and observations on the odd and funny events he witnesses.

BUT with all that being said, I could not put this book down.

An E-book version is also available. Once again, he said it. But it was mine.

Scar Tissue : Anthony Kiedis :

As a child he was a disrespectful bully and petty criminal, as an adult he was a drug-addicted jerk and by the way he had so much sex! Jan 27, Supreeth rated it it was amazing Shelves: His death only made matters worse, and caused him to kiedid more and more hardcore drugs.


Apart from some New Age talk about spirituality, he’s also refreshingly free from bullshit. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.


In fact, some of his stories are so damned grandiose that I honestly do not believe what he is writing is what actually happened. Tlssue that doesn’t interest you, I hear Keith Richards has one coming out and I remember my sister playing Blood Sugar Sex Magik constantly when I was about 9, but since then, I completely lost track of the band.

A pretty fascinating, no-holds-barred look into the life of the vocalist of one of my favourite bands. While showing himself as a selfish, unkind and destructive person in the past, Anthony Kiedis still managed to turn into miedis kind, generous and lovable character I don’t say “man”, ’cause there’s a possibility that this book can be just too good to be true. Unsourced material may be challenged and removed.

It also tells the dramatic and bleakly humorous family story of how Grant’s estranged wife, and two children, Helen sxar Warren, dealt with this unusual and often tumultuous life.

I’m with You Singles Collection. Age is Just a Number by Charles Eugster. Crisscrossing the country, the Chili Peppers were musical innovators and influenced a whole generation of musicians.

Scar Tissue

BUT with all The audiobook quality was pure crap. I can see why the book is so popular. Anthony Kiedis is the lead singer of the rock group The Red Hot Chili Peppers, one of the most beloved bands in the world. It really does all come across as quite pathetic and laughable for the biography of a man well into his 40s. Scar Tissue is a story of dedication and debauchery, of intrigue and integrity, of recklessness and redemption–a story that could only have come out of the world of rock.

By the time his band formed and became more popular in the s, he and former bandmate Hillel Slovak had severe drug addictions. All insane drug usage, clueless relationships with teenagers and women and pointless abstinence make a mess and leave an unpleasant taste, which lasts for the biggest part of the book for me.

The way this was written was very matter of fact. Well, anyway, you owe her flowers every day of her life now. Bring it on Home kiedia a celebration, a cautionary tale and a compelling human drama. Not your run of the mill tribe of nihilistic LA punks. I’d go tho their houses and see their dads come home from their office buildings and not have any time or energy ,iedis compassion for their kids.


Also, he is ignorant enough to believe the word “FUCK” is an acronym stemming from For Unlawful Carnal Knowledge when anyone with even the most basic knowledge of etymology knows this is pure bullshit. The way he talks about his early and rampant drug use is prideful versus caution tale-esque. Jun 11, Edwin Stratton-Mackay rated it did not like it. Using the stage name Cole Dammett adapted from his father’s stage name, Blackie Dammetthe landed a number of small roles in television and film as a teenager in the late s.

Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all odds, have become one of the most successful bands in the world. I was never a RHCP fan to begin with, I guess I am not into verbal diarrhea, I did find it interesting that Tony was constantly praised by his English teacher for being such a creative writer and was told he had very special talents, I guess his lyric’s “hey-o, listen what I say-o” or rhyming Mississippi with Hippie is proof of his genius!

Scar Tissue (book) – Wikipedia

It was released in by Hyperion and authored by Kiedis with Larry Slomanwho compiled information and conducted interviews. Anthony Kiedis comes across as a self-centered idiot whose drug-abuse from such hissue early age has almost certainly damaged his brain in some way. I thought he was doing that on purpose, just to fuck with me.
