READ PDF ò Scar Tissue Ò Now in paperback, 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 , four self described knuckleheads burst out of the mosh pitted mosaic of the neo punk rock scene in LA 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 So, where do I start A realllllyyyyyy complicated process of reading this book, I really made up variuos reason how to escape The Scar Tissue , that s why I read it for a really long time for me, 9

reason how to escape The Scar Tissue , that s why I read it for a really long time for me, 9 days, ouch But, you know, the last 10 pages really worked for me I dunno how to explain, maybe it s the Tony Kiedis charm or his Lithuanian roots, but I truly felt the change of him, themature and responsible version of him But let s start from the beginningSo, it doesn t matter how cool, high or sexy you think you are, you will never reach the level of Anthony Kiedis, in a bad meaning mostly That s the theme of this book for me.What really pissed me off while reading, is that I couldn t find the narrative structure Let s say this book was a REALLY long picaresque I did this then I did that then this then that oh, and repeat it This is really the worst aspect of this book Oh bro, it s about the Peppers It should represent them in the best way They write, sing and perform fascinating music, I, myself, am not a real fan of them, but I like them, I sometimes listen to their songs I can compare this book to a really untasty candy, which has a yummy filling, but too small to get me high.The untasty piece The story of a primitive drug addict who, lucky to him, is in a successful band and can t keep your interest till the end of the book it just becomes monotonous All insane drug usage, clueless relationships with teenagers and women and pointless abstinence make a mess and leave an unpleasant taste, which lasts for the biggest part of the book for me The tasty piece While showing himself as a selfish, unkind and destructive person in the past, Anthony Kiedis still managed to turn into a kind, generous and lovable character I don t say man , cause there s a possibility that this book can be just too good to be true It just left a good feeling inside me, when I finished reading this book All in all, it is an interesting story about a great band and its leader, but Anthony Kiedis didn t suit me as the best choice to present it.But anyway DNF 55 pagesI just can t do this I can t listen to this egotistical asshat talk about himself and how his awesome dipshit of a father hand fed him pot and quaaludes at age 11 and introduced him to sex at age 12 by letting him bang his Dad s 18 year old girlfriend Because better than everyone else And because rockstar Here is a quote to show you what reading this is likeBut on the whole, I wouldn t have traded my lifestyle for anything else, especially some of the mundane realities DNF 55 pagesI just can t do this I can t listen to this egotistical asshat talk about himself and how his awesome dipshit of a father hand fed him pot and quaaludes at age 11 and introduced him to sex at age 12 by letting him bang his Dad s 18 year old girlfriend Because better than everyone else And because rockstar Here is a quote to show you what reading this is likeBut on the whole, I wouldn t have traded my lifestyle for anything else, especially some of the mundane realities of my friends at Emerson I d go to their houses and see their dads come home from their office buildings and not have any time or energy or compassion for their kids They just sat their and drank their whiskey and smoked their cigars and read their paper and went to bed That didn t seem like a much better option Trying to get some sleep so I d be rested for school the next day while people were having sex on the couch and shooting cocaine and cranking the stereo was definitely not a mundane reality But it was mine On school nights, I d stay home, but Spider aka Dad would be right at his power table at the RainbowKeep in mind he is in middle school at this point And his Dad is taking him to the Rainbow Room, giving him drugs on the weekend, and sleeping until 2pm with his underage girlfriends But don t worry, he leaves him bus money to get school and a skateboard to get home the skateboard making him a betterawesome skater than the famed Lords of Dogtown, by the way Because they were doing it to be cool, but he was just awesome naturally snort Barf.I would feel bad for the poor guy for having such a waste of a parent, but all he does is wax poetic about how awesome Dad was and he is such a little badass for being made into Daddy s little drug mule as a prepubescent The way he talks about his early and rampant drug use is prideful versus caution tale esque And don t even get me started out how he talks about women and sex The way he tells us about his earliest sexual exploits sounded less like a suave ladies man andlike a desperate band geek trying to convince the flute section that he had a threesome with two Brazilian models the night prior Long story short, the title of this should be less Scar Tissue andPeople Who Shouldn t Have Children How my Dad Fed me Drugs and Condoned What Amounts to Statutory Rape and How I Accidentally Got Famous Because I Knew the Right People and Rode the Coattails of My More Talented Group of Friends Who No Longer Talk to Me, Because ASSHOLE I ve decided to stop here before I hate all the Peppers music forever as a result Find me at Whew had to put it down for a bit because I was having nightmares where Anthony Kiedis was chasing me because he thought I had his drugs. So sue meI m a sucker for a celebrity biography, especially one packed with lurid details of drug use and ill advised sexual escapades And, I love the Chili Peppers, so this book was irresistible to me I learned a little about Anthony Kiedis song writing process, which was nice Unfortunately, I also learned that he is a selfish prick with a stunning lack of self awareness But, hey, it s only rock n roll, right
