Anthony Kiedis Interview: Mojo December 2011

A one page interview with Anthony Kiedis is featured in the latest edition of MOJO (UK) magazine. Here’s an extract:

Now, on the cusp of his 49th birthday, the muscle-bound frontman favours a cleaner life: “I want,” he says, “to be the strongest, fastest, surfingest 50-year-old the world has ever seen.”

 Ever considered going solo?

Not really. In the little grey area after John quit, a couple of producers were approaching me to do solo stuff. I listened to what they’d done and thought, “Fuck no, it’s not as cool as what I do when I’m with my band.”

Your autobiography,  Scar Tissue, was a real warts and all book…

Arnold Wartzenall? The great writer?

That’s the one. Did you worry about dumping personal information into the public domain?

In all truth, I didn’t really think it through. I was so used to sharing my “warts” with people, I forgot to consider that people would eventually read it. But I’m happy because it has become a go-to book for people who are struggling with their own addictions and challenges in life. I’m an example of someone who was down and out and got over the hump.
