OK, the more personal stuff… Why This Website?

This website was originally set up by Rebecca B (Squitherwitch on the old RHCP forums):

Back in January 2010, I suddenly became aware that there was a website (now closed) dedicated to the then new RHCP guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer; just departed guitarist John Frusciante had a long-established site (Invisible Movement) and it seemed wrong that Anthony himself had no dedicated site. Through my experiences with the online RHCP world, I knew that Anthony was often the main focus of attention within the band yet information on him was sketchy or often inaccurate which I felt was doing him and the fans a big disservice. I also wanted a site that was a sensible and a considered source of information which concentrated on the facts and not how much someone adored Anthony himself. In addition, RHCP are so important in my life but for me personally, Anthony’s lyrics really define the band’s music and I also love the online RHCP community so combining everything and creating this website seemed to be the obvious thing to do and the idea for this was born. I spent several months working on content for the site before going live in November 2010.

More recently, there is also the added connection through addiction which has become so important to me during the last few years. Sadly my husband was an alcoholic and it resulted in his death in June 2012. Anthony’s biography ‘Scar Tissue’ helped me to understand some things in a way only an addict could, it provided me with inspiration that addiction can be overcome and although my husband didn’t take the same path, Anthony’s life gives me hope because he overcame addiction and hopefully people can take inspiration from his story to beat their own personal battles.

Note: Blackie Dammett was made aware of the site before it went live and gave it his blessing. We would never intentionally cause distress or harm to either Anthony or any of his real life friends and family.

We welcome all visitors and hope they enjoy the resources we have gathered here as much as the team involved have enjoyed collating and collecting it all!

The Chili Source

There is also the original, sister, site to this one which is dedicated to the band as a whole:  Red Hot Chili Peppers news & information site so please feel free to check this out if you like AnthonyKiedis.net. The other site houses the main magazine scan collection, photos relating to the whole band, band interviews etc. whereas this one just obviously concentrates on Anthony Kiedis himself.  There are now over 500 articles scanned and online in the main article scan collection.

  6. Authony Kiedis,

    Your book is amzing, I reading it on the audio mobile app. I’m only 19 years of age, I’m in the process of writing my own book right now. I have a crazy life growling up, Maybe I once it get published, you would read it??

    Thank,
    Landon Price

    See now, that’s exactly what the admin does NOT want….trying to plug your book on her webpage…absolutely no self respect. You are 19. Anthony would probably laugh at the idea that you have enough life experience to fill a book, no matter how “crazy” your 19 years have been you simply to not have enough life experience to write a memoir. Geesh. Sorry if I overstepped any boundaries but this isn’t a marketplace.

    Thanks for your care Mary. I’m actually pretty relaxed about links that are genuine and have a connection to the website – I don’t like advertising links such as for t-shirts or fake handbags. If the book gets written and is linked to RHCP/AK in some way, I’ll have a look at it and take it from there. Thanks 🙂

    Landon, sorry but this is an unofficial site. It has no link with AK himself and I have no contact details for him so I can’t forward anything to him to read.

  9. Anthony, I love you.
    Maybe I have to leave this fucked up country.
    It does not give me shelter and takes and takes…
    Maybe I will move soon to Israel.
    I will see you here or there. We are one.
    Yours Anna

      While you do seem to appreciate Anthony Kiedis’ voice & RHCP music,you should also appreciate his awesome lyrics! There is where most of his creativity is presented to us RHCP lovers! By the way,listen to “Police Station” for some really beautiful lyrics!

    Thank you so much for making and running this site! I’m a huge RHCP fan and recently finished Scar Tissue and I want to learn as much as possible about AK/RHCP and your website has helped me a lot in doing that.

    Hey how’s it going? I’m in rehab at the VA down the street from the pier. It would be an inspiration for me and many others if you would be a guest speaker for on of our meetings. Low profile. In and out. No drama. In and out. Lots of injured vets in recovery. Your music gets me through the down times. Cheers Chuck

      Sorry we’re an unofficial site and I’m just a fan. We have no contact with AK himself in anyway. I wish I could pass this message on as it’s something close to my heart too. Have had personal contact with the whole addiction journey but for us it wasn’t successful and I’m now a widow bringing up two kids alone as a result so I understand how important this is and wish I could help sort this out for you. I wish you all the best on your road to recovery. Keep strong.

    Hi Rebecca,

    Thank you very much for this website.
    I’m sorry to read about your experience with the lethal consequences of addiction and wish you and your family strength and courage. Scar Tissue indeed reaches people on both sides of that trip. I’m also sorry to see that too many people do not read well and leave messages for AK on this website. Quite annoying. I do admire your gentle way of handling these comments.

    Being famous kinda makes it impossible to actually reach the artists on a personal level, but what they have to share with the fans is their work, their music. A thing most people don’t seem to understand besides the fact of respecting the privacy of these artists. They have a private life too after all.

    I do appreciate AK sharing a very personal part of his life by publishing Scar Tissue and am happy to read it has helped you to better understand the disease of addiction which had such a devastating result on your husband and your family.
    The book also gave me an idea of the way RHCP make their music and how it reflects their personalities. I like their music even more for it.

    As a fan of RHCP and their front man, I thank you again for this website, it sure is a pleasure to find information without the usual gossip and idolization, and with great respect towards the artist and fans.

    Kind regards,
    Ciska
