Scar Tissue
Scar Tissue | Anthony Kiedis, Larry Sloman
The New York Times bestseller by one of rock's most provocative figures Scar Tissue is Anthony Kiedis's searingly honest memoir of a life spent in the fast lane. In 1983, four self-described "knuckleheads" burst out of the mosh-pitted mosaic of the neo-punk rock scene in L.A. with their own unique brand of cosmic hardcore mayhem funk. Over twenty years later, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, against all 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 roller-coaster ride. Whether he's recollecting the influence of the beautiful, strong women who have been his muses, or retracing a journey that has included appearances as diverse as a performance before half a million people at Woodstock or an audience of one at the humble compound of the exiled Dalai Lama, Kiedis shares a compelling story about the price of success and excess. 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.

Boooooks @BarbaraBB yeah I love him, I must admit though I wasn‘t to keen on him in the first half of the book 2mo

Boooooks @BarbaraBB 😂 me neither I liked his long hair, I‘m excited to read fleas book now! 2mo
BarbaraBB Long hair and I likes him blond as well 😍. I pre-ordered Flea‘s book but I still have no confirmation that it‘s on its way! 2mo
Cinfhen I really loved this book. Total miracle Anthony made it to the other side, but I agree @BarbaraBB that mustache is HORRIBLE 🤪 2mo

Only at the halfway point and I‘m seriously wondering how he is still alive never mind managing to become a hugely successful musician

arlenefinnigan I've heard this is a great read, how are you finding it? 2mo
Boooooks @arlenefinnigan I‘m enjoying it although it is quite repetitive with the drug binges and the same things happening again and again but it‘s interesting so far. I am hoping that he‘ll go into his relationship with Flea a bit more though because he barely talks about him in depth which seems odd considering that besides him he‘s the most present member of the band. 2mo
arlenefinnigan @Boooooks yeah they always seemed really close. Interesting. 2mo
BarbaraBB That was my one disappointment too, that he writes so little about their friendship. Let‘s see what Flea has to say about it in 2mo
Boooooks @BarbaraBB yeah I think I‘ll give that one a try it sounds good 2mo

Well, the good news is, I still love the Chili Peppers music after reading this 😀. And I really enjoyed this book. Kiedis doesn‘t hold back and the insights he shares about his addictions are truly horrific. He comes across pretty selfish and immature and a carbon copy of his father. But, I guess that is the way he was raised and the industry/world he lives in is just like that. I didn‘t find myself disliking him though. Interesting character.

Just starting to read this very battered library copy of a book I have put off reading for years. I love the music of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers. I‘m always a bit hesitant to read biographies of artists. I‘m scared it will colour my view of the music I love. Let‘s see what happens with this one.

Audiobook--narrator a bit annoying, volume inconsistencies left me straining to hear one minute and bleeding from the ears the next. Also you could hear him shuffling papers.. The concept of addiction is hard to fathom as a non-addict but you dive into his world and immerse yourself in it. You cheer for him when he goes to rehab and fret at each relapse. Not for the delicate but good for fans of the band.

Not all that book related but these are the matching Red Hot Chili Pepper tattoos my brother and I got together about a month ago. We went with a pepper rocking a Kiedis mustache. (His looked angry because he went all white and the artist went super deep with the ink) @Cinfhen @echalpan @TrishB @BarbaraBB

BarbaraBB So cool 🌶! As I said I‘d love to have their logo on the inside of my wrist. Or some lyrics... ❤️. Thanks for showing!!! 6mo
julesG So cool! For a second I thought your brother's a branding. I wish I could find an artist to do a white (and watercolour) tattoo on me, but it's hard here in Germany. They don't want to work with white ink as the main colour. 6mo
JoScho @julesG thanks! Some artists don‘t like to do white here as well because they don‘t last as long but this guy was cool. It did look a lot like a branding for a few days after. 6mo

#WanderingJune My all time favorite band RHCP 🌶🖤🤘🏼💋 Anthony Kiedis is the embodiment of sex, drugs and rock and roll 🎤🎸❣️His memoir was a wild ride although it was written early 2000 so I felt like a lot of ground was not covered. Still cool to learn how this group came together in the late 70‘s/ early 80‘s while still in HS. Check out their carpool karaoke ~ it‘s hilarious and listen to some #Californication https://youtu.be/cfudXO_vzWk

Sex, drugs & rock n roll... and then MORE sex & MORE & MORE drugs pretty much sums up this memoir. I found it rather sad that AK grew up in such a tumultuous environment. Large parts of this memoir were infuriating as he seems to only equate women as sexual objects. Published in 2004 (😟) so lots of new material is not covered. A pick but only for RHCP fans. #NonFiction2019 #Booked2019 #Pop19

Cinfhen I know you ❤️him @BarbaraBB but this book made me a little sad. He came across as a junkie who‘s just been incredibly lucky!!! He did have a tragic upbringing with Blackie ( his dad) 10mo
BarbaraBB That Blackie has been a horrible dad. How could he do what he did, bringing up Anthony. He made him a junkie as a teenager. And yes, he is lucky to have gotten out of that drugs spiral. Thanks to people like Flea I think, who is so strong. 10mo
Cinfhen It‘s amazing how Flea & AK have been best friends since HS @BarbaraBB that actually warmed my heart ♥️ and Flea has had his share of problems too😪😪 but he seemed to handle fame much better. His daughter must be almost 30 now!! 10mo

BarbaraBB Clara is a photographer now, her work is really cool. And John Frusciante, he went so low as well. Couldn‘t handle the fame. RHCP‘s story is really amazing I think. 10mo

So I have to be honest-I don‘t own many books anymore (my classroom library is a different situation entirely 😂). I read mostly on my Kindle and get library books regularly. There are several places in my house with a few books like this. Most of these were gifts and have sentimental value for me. There is even a Nook in the mix. I am jealous of all of your beautiful shelves filled with books! #riotgrams #shelfie

Someone on Litsy mentioned their husband read this and liked it so I thought I'd give it a shot. I really enjoyed it. We learn about Anthony's upbringing, his intro into sex and drugs, and how RHCP came to be. Anthony has always struggled with drugs and it's really surprising that he is still alive. Very interesting read.

The RHCP is my favorite band since I was 16 . Their music is part of my life , a necessity for me just like air water and food . That had been said , I didn't feel excited reading Anthony's book and I wish if he had written more of an upscale memoir about his musicianship and the greatness of the Peppers as a band beside the other stable stories of sex and drugs . But never the less I still appreciate him and respect him as musician .

I don't 'bail' on books. It's not in my nature. But I'm just not in the right frame of mind to put up with Anthony's poor choice. From a music history perspective, this book has great potential. As an entertaining read, abort.

Is it cheating to use Kiedis' memoir as my #underthebridge pick? I listened to this a few years ago, read by Rider Strong, and thought he has had an interesting life. Very sad adolescence with lots of neglect, so he overcame quite a bit to get where he did. He even discusses the background for some of his songs, including "Under the Bridge." Red Hot Chili Peppers fans will enjoy this book. #LyricalApril

I'm obsessed with this story. He lives the rock and roll lifestyle but always makes it home for Christmas.

I've been on a major memoir kick. This is the ultimate hedonistic rock and roll story. Drugs, music and women with a man-boy embracing it all.

Revisiting this book. I devoured it when it first came out almost 12 years ago.

Took me on a nice ride of sex, drugs, and rock n roll. Depressing, disturbing, but all together an intriguing read. Not sure why so many people complained about it. I thought it was genuine and not entirely self serving. I recommend it.

"I had been there only a few days when my dad called me into the kitchen. He was sitting at the table with a pretty eighteen-year-old girl he'd been hanging out with that week. 'Do you want to smoke a joint?' He asked me."
