Description

Hillel dies from an overdose and then he launches into a story that has nothing to do with Hillel, other friends die and then he launches into stories of sex with his woman of the day/week/month. Then I noticed that this autobiography was available and I thought it would be interesting to see what it was like working with Rick Rubin.

But with a compelling enough story(with all that money and drugs it's got to be worth a few pages) I'd recommend. He cannot get thru a single paragraph without telling you how awesome he is at everything, stealing from somewhere or being a complete dickhead to people, doing some kind of drugs because it makes him all spiritually enlightened, fucking a bunch of random girls and cheating on his "soulmate" who he loves more than anything. Scar Tissue includes anecdotes about relationships that reflect extremely poorly on Kiedis and paint him in a dour light.Kiedis also goes deep on the drug addiction that plagued much of his life in those early days of the group (before getting clean), detailing the highs and lows of relapses and attempted recoveries. Kiedis admirably negotiates his way through the detritus of shattered veins, scattered needles and broken hearts. This book has everything you could possibly ask for; it made me laugh, it made me cry, it made me sad and it made me profoundly happy. Considering the massive success that musical biopics have had in recent years, like Bohemian Rhapsody, Rocketman and Elvis, it's no surprise film companies are scooping up music stories where they can. I file this book in a long list of narcissistic, fake-ass, non-storyteller, 'autobiographers' which include Gene Simmons, Nikki Sixx, Don Felder, Tommy Lee, Bobby Blotzer and Scott Weiland, all of whose autobiographies suspiciously seem like attempts to dig their respective authors out of various financial holes.

My only real concern is that Antony Kiedis 'quit' doing drugs 'for the last time' fairly late into the book. I was motivated to read the book less by Kiedis and more so by the potential presence of John Frusciante, the Chilis brilliant, mercurial guitarist.SCAR TISSUE far transcends the typical rock biography, because Anthony Kiedis is anything but a typical rock star. I realized that the whole point of writing that book wasn’t for me, but to show that somebody can go all the way down and come all the way back and have a productive, successful happy interesting life.
