Item Description

Anthony Kiedis is an American musician, best known as the vocalist/lyricist of the band Red Hot Chili Peppers with whom he has fronted since their inception in 1983. His distinct vocal style and his electric stage presence have helped catapult the small Los Angeles band onto the global stage. The Chili Peppers continue to be one of the most influential and popular bands in rock music. The band has recorded ten studio albums and as a member, Kiedis was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2012. Kiedis is also an occasional actor, having appeared in the films F.I.S.T., Point Break, and The Chase. In 2004, he published his autobiography, entitled Scar Tissue.

After spending his early years in Grand Rapids, Michigan, Anthony moved to Los Angeles. He attended Fairfax High School, where he struggled to find friends as he had recently transferred to a new school district. However, he soon met Flea, and after a brief confrontation, the two became best friends and bonded while sitting next to each other in driver's ed class. Kiedis recalled: "We were drawn to each other by the forces of mischief and love and we became virtually inseparable. We were both social outcasts. We found each other and it turned out to be the longest-lasting friendship of my life." Kiedis became a significant influence on Flea, exposing him to rock music, particularly punk rock.
