Scar Tissue (2004) - BOOK REVIEW

Rating: 
Title: Scar Tissue
Genre: Autobiography

I heard so much hype about this book from all my friends but I only got around to reading this recently and I'd have to say it probably fell a bit short of my expectations. Most likely because I heard so many great things about it and the fact that the first rock star auto-bio I read was Slash's which was absolutely crazy.

Following what seems to be the blueprint of any rock star auto-bio, or any bio in general, Scar Tissue chronicles the life of Anthony Kiedis from kid to Californication. If you like music and enjoy a good read, this book provides an interesting insight into the Chili Peppers and their front man.

First 300 odd pages were great but then the final 150 seemed to just be about an endless cycle of... Drug binge, meet a girl like no other who is the love of his life, clean himself up, break up, drug binge, meet another girl like no other who is the love of his life, clean himself up, break up, drug binge... you get the picture.

Still a good read though. Glad I did it.
