View high res cover image. Scar Tissue Review 2 3 Nov 10, Okay, RHCP is my favorite band. The formation of the band, its iterations, the origins of their sound and their songs are all explained well in Kiedis’ inimitable voice.
But, you know, the last 10 pages really worked for me.
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. Trying to tssue 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.
Every time he mentioned a specific interview or performance or basically any incident that was caught on camera I was immediately on YouTube watching antnony. Even if you are a huge fan, can we just agree that the man is unbelievably full of himself?
But after reading this book, I can’t stand Anthony Kiedis. To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. Tony is then invited to a prayer meeting which is ONLY for those who have studied for 50 years, but of coarse Tony is invited and is seated in the front row, then leaves after kiedia first lesson, WTF.
It’s as i The only problem I found while reading this book was the fact that Kiedis is such a lucky pretentious fuck. It was svar in by Hyperion and authored by Kiedis with Larry Slomantisxue compiled information and conducted interviews. 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.
I appreciated the way you spoke of these things, because they made you, a real monster in a way, more human. His autobiography is the story of a narcissistic characterless hustler, written by a narcissistic characterless hustler. This is what happened, then this, then this. Sep 27, Michelle rated it it was ok Shelves: Maybe he was so high he didn’t know it wasn’t him who did those things.
Kiedsi 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 section about his childhood was difficult to read, because he was basically robbed of one, which I suppose led to his troubles later on. Tender, hilarious, illuminating, and endlessly captivating, Theft by Finding offers a rare look into the mind of one of our amthony greatest comic geniuses.
And we’re not talking just about the music, but his life. For a musician who has spent the better half of his life either intoxicated or on a drug high, Kiedis, the lead anthkny of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has produced a surprisingly detailed account of his life. Tiseue don’t even get me started out how he talks about women and sex.
Seeing it changed my soul. Rodriguez’s story speaks to every woman, mother, sister, wife – to anyone who has ever questioned their relationships, their place in the world and the choices that they’ve made. So, where do I start? From Wikipedia, the kiediis encyclopedia.

Drawing on interviews with Daltrey himself, as well as his friends and fellow musicians, this is the most complete and revealing biography of one of tisue most powerful personalities. Mar 31, Rita Meade rated it really liked it Shelves: View all 32 comments.
But while Kiedis fails to scratch beneath the surface of his fast-lane life, his frankness is moving, especially toward the end of the book, when his mea culpa turns into a full-blown account of recovery and redemption.
And of course, what I love even more as a Chili Peppers fan is obviously getting to know Anthony Kiedis better.

kiedia Preview — Scar Tissue by Anthony Kiedis. If I can stop a single person reading this book my job is done. 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 days, ouch! Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive?
And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. DNF 55 pages I just can’t do this. There were a few negatives for me. But perhaps it is unfair to judge him.
Written with the full co-operation of the Grant family and with access to Grant’s private correspondence, business contracts and photographs, this biography features interviews with the three surviving members of Led Zeppelin, and examines Grant’s remarkably close and some suggest unhealthy relationship with Jimmy Page, his troubled relationship with Robert Plant and his great friendship with the late drummer John Bonham. Or maybe he has an over active imagination and invented a few scenes in the book.
View all 47 comments. I was not a fan of yours when I picked up the book, not even knowing you. Even though I can only relate to a fraction of what is in this book, seeing how my own life is so radically different from that of the author, I loved every minute of reading this book. It really does all come across as quite pathetic and laughable for the biography of a man well into his 40s.
