As lead singer and songwriter for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis has lived life on the razor's edge. Much has been written about him, but until now we've only had his songs as clues to his experience from the inside. In Scar Tissue, Kiedis proves himself to be as compelling a memoirist as he is a lyricist, giving us a searingly honest account of the life from which his music has evolved.

I love the Chili Peppers & find their music inspiring, comforting. I found myself stopping & googling lyrics, events & people. Anthony is honest & insightful. I loved this book. Bad experiences & choices lead to wisdom, his music is proof.

The JT LeRoy scandal is a story of our times. In January 2006, the New York Times unmasked Savannah Knoop as the face of the mysterious author JT LeRoy. A media frenzy ensued as JT's fans, mentors, and readers came to terms with the fact that the gay-male-ex-truck-stop-prostitute-turned literary-wunderkind was really a girl from San Francisco, whose sister-in-law wrote the books.

Story is disorganized & jumps all over the place. No real insight into why or how this happened. Left me more confused & didn't give any insight to why. Narrator was good though.
