This was a great story, especially if you're a fan of The Red Hot Chili Peppers. Anthony Keidis's story is amazing. It's a wonder their band has persevered and achieved such a high level of fame over the last 20 years despite his severe drug abuse. I would highly recommend this book.
However, it is a literal crime against humanity that Anthony himself didnt do the reading. i hope he had a great reason for not doing it, because there is a giant chasm left when listening to this read by someone else.
I love this book from the very first chapter to the very last chapter Anthony Kiedis is definitely a milestone when it comes to overcoming the hard drug and alcohol addiction and still being a successful individual way to go Anthony
This was a harrowing and unbelievable story of a fantastic musician who fought the war against addiction and not only survived but thrived. This is the most unbelievable story I've ever heard fact or fiction and an absolute must read.
I love this story. It was funny and heartfelt and showed that anything is possible with perseverance and to keep trying until you get it ! I feel like this would help with anyone with addiction. Although I have not had a drug addiction other than tobacco, which may not seem like much to most, I have stopped smoking while reading this book. and Anthony is my inspiration. If he can kick all the stuff that he was addicted to I can stop smoking. Thank you!
Red Hot Chili Peppers have been my favorite band since I was a little kid. I have read the lyrics of their songs but this tells the full detailed story behind them.
Most touching story, beautifully written and masterfully read. I'm am a fan of Red Hot Chilly Peppers, but Anthony Kiedis never impressed much as a singer or a lyricist. Now I'm very much impressed by him as a person.
I decided to listen to this book before my first concert of RHCP to know more about band from the insider's view. I liked the story behind composing some of their greatest songs. Story itself was very interesting and was really sad when book ended because I would love to hear more.
