Scar Tissue Anthony Kiedis & Larry Sloman Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

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.

User reviews about this book

  • Honest moving story

    By Trainman57
    A great autobiography. Anthony comes across as honest as they come. Tells the story of his unstructured childhood and the rise of the RHCP in matter of a fact fashion not focused on glorifying himself. Cool to see the relationships with his band mates. Great insight into his thinking during the battle with addiction. Interesting insight in his character as he strives and mostly succeeds in staying faithful to various girlfriends despite the temptations of the road. Like Anthony before respect him a lot more now.
  • Amazing book!

    Scar Tissue really lets you get to know Anthony Kiedis' backstory and personality. The book presents us with a very personal and tragic story that ultimately plays out well. 5/7, perfect score! Would recommend.

    Awesome book-I'm obsessed with seeing the rhcp's in concert of the few bands I haven't had the pleasure to see in person. Anthony's crazy and very gifted!
  • Healing

    By Chambliss
    Reading this book is mesmerizing, like watching a train wreck in super slow-mo, simultaneously wanting to make it stop while not being able to tear your eyes from the inevitable, fascinating wreckage. Whitnessing AK’s seemlingly endless battle with addiction unfold; descent into hell, recovery, pause, repeat, is painful. But, as the horror unfolds and the revolving door of muses float in and out of his life, he also gives a priveleged view into his creative process as well as that of an amazing group of artist, and the evolution of their music. All the joy, beauty, artistry, friendship and glee is there, along with the pain, loss, exaustion and powerlessness of addiction. This book offers insight to any fan of their music, and a cautionary tale of hope and redemption for those of us battling similar demons. Thank you Swan, for sharing your journey with us.
