Scar Tissue

Not being the biggest Red Hot Chilli Peppers fan, I quizzed myself why I was purchasing an eight pound paperback about the droll bands’ lead singer.  “Scar Tissue”,  had come highly recommended by Q magazine, the bible of music magazines, in my opinion, and I had been hunting for a captivating book to read since I finished “Hard Girls” and Martina Cole would be a tough act to follow.

Except from being nigh impossible to find, the book is one of the best books I have ever read.  Viewing myself as an accomplished reader, Antony Kiedis seemed to relinquish my thirst for an articulate and genuine account of his unbelievable life, which is something that I didn’t expect whatsoever.

The book takes you through a rollercoaster of drugs, sex and rock and roll.  Kiedis at the age of twelve was shooting lines of cocaine with Keith Moon, The Who’s infamous drummer, and his father, Hollywood’s number one dealer, which is a far cry from what I was doing at age twelve!  He opens up in the most brutally honest way a human being could possibly convey.  From losing his virginity with one of his father’s many girlfriends, breaking his back, fighting a constant battle with heroin, which remains an inner demon he still contends with, and losing his best friend to the bottomless pit of addiction and fatality.

Feeling shocked and appalled aswell as informed and enlightened, Kiedis has lived a tremendously mind-blowing life, when reading it, you can’t imagine that someone has lived like he has and you forget that it is complete non-fiction you are reading.

This book is well worth the read and even though a work of non-fiction, “Scar Tissue” is a work of complete escapism into the dark world of booze, narcotics, women and rock and roll.
