Scar Tissue, Anthony Kiedis
I don’t think this would be the type of book I’d usually pick up in the book store, but I must say I really did enjoy it, the shock and awe made it almost impossible to put it down. I was amazed by the accounts of drug use in James Frey’s A Million Little Pieces; turns out Frey fabricated a lot of his book. But Kiedis amazes with his true-life accounts of drug abuse and womanizing, unbelievable the chemicals this guy’s forced into his bloodstream over the years, I’m surprised he’s still alive. Like he says in the book time and time again, I just can’t comprehend his kind of addiction without experiencing it myself (no thanks!). Amazing that Kiedis has headed up one of the most successful bands of my generation, he spent a good portion of his early years as a broke drug addict on the streets of LA. Big-ups to the Blythe Street Massiv for donating this book my collection.
