Drugs. Drugs. Drugs and more drugs. Thats pretty much what this book is all about.
Reading this book makes you feel like the author is sitting across the tabke from you talking directly to you. Anthony and Sloman take a very indepth look at Kiedis childhood and growing up with a famous drug dealer dad. From the start to page 120 or so is allabout his childhood. After that is all about the beginning of Anthony and the Peppers, his many stints at rehab and all the crazy stories of drugs on tour.
Anthony Kiedis had a crazy life as a child and of course growing up surrounded but drugs. There are a few cool never before seen pictures throughout the book, including one of him, smoking pot with his dad when he was 11 or 12 years old. Also he explains the process of recording all their albums all the way up to 2004 (when the book was released)
Overall a really great book for any RHCP fan. Only thing I wish it had more of is Pictures and maybe interviews with otther band members or famous musicians. Youd think for it being almost 500 pages long it would include more of those.
