5.0 out of 5 stars A fantastic, interesting autobiography, 28 Oct. 2004
By A Customer
This review is from: Scar Tissue (Hardcover)
Being a big fan of the chili peppers and of Anthony in particular, i couldnt wait for his autobiography to come out. I was not disappointed! By the end of this book you feel you really know Anthony, its such an honest account of his life. (and you have to admire him for being so honest). The whole history of the chili peppers, drug addiction; rehab, relapse and the continued cycle, sexual encounters and great stories of celebrities who have crossed his path (he's been babysat by Cher!) are all explored plus much more. He talks in great detail about his years of drug abuse which can at times be quite shocking. Whats admirable is that he never trys to pin blame on anyone for his addiction, taking full responsibility for it himself when many may try to find a scapegoat. Its not all about the dark side to Anthonys life though, theres lots of funny stories and lighthearted amusing stuff too. Theres quite a few photos, Chili Peppers ones (early days), family, childhood, ex girlfriends etc. There is also some stories about what inspired lyrics, which i found quite interesting. Some are well known like "Under the Bridge" & "Scar Tissue" but there are some stories behind the lyrics for some other songs and what inspired them that are not so well known "Porcelain" & "Tearjerker" being examples. This is a moving, truthful, funny and interesting book. I would highly recommend it!
