Scar Tissue

Scar Tissue - Anthony Kiedis My flatmate at university looked and acted a bit like Anthony Kiedis, so I read a lot of this in a bookstore. He portrays himself as a man who just drifts from success to success. Women take him into stairwells and, like an innocent, he is led into sin.

Somehow the most interesting details of his life eluded me that day in the bookstore. The man is a stone-cold maniac. It's said he used to jump off of high hotel balconies into swimming pools, until he missed and broke his back.

The book contains some very telling details about his way of singing and voice coaches. He and I also share Lithuanian heritage, in his case, on his father's side.
