Now in paperback, the New York Times bestseller by one of rock's most provocative figuresScar 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.

4.0 Great audiobook
I'm not usually a huge fan of rock biographies. I've found that they're too often poorly written and interesting only to big fans of whatever musician or band they're about. Therefore, I did not have high hopes when I started listening to Scar Tissue, the story of Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anth...

3.0 Scar Tissue
My flatmate at university looked and acted a bit like Anthony Kiedis, so I read a lot of this in a bookstore. He portrays himself as a man who just drifts from success to success. Women take him into stairwells and, like an innocent, he is led into sin.Somehow the most interesting details of his lif...

A pretty fascinating, no-holds-barred look into the life of the vocalist of one of my favourite bands. This is possibly the first ever memoir.autobiography I've come across where the author not only admits how awful he may have been at points, but also makes no excuses for it. This actually ended up...

3.0 Scar Tissue: The Autobiography
After months of renewing this book at the library and getting side tracked with other books, (such as the Fifty Shades series), I finally finished reading Scar Tissue.It was definitely an interesting read, even if Anthony Kiedis is a bit of a tool. He had such a horrible drug addiction, with so many...

When I first started reading this book I thought to myself what a self involved asshole! Which is sad because I'm a big fan of the band and wanted to like him. In fact I had to have a little pep talk with myself so I could carry on reading. It went something along the lines of- "You don’t have to li...
