Biography

For the better part of three decades, singer-songwriter Anthony Kiedis was the voice of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, the genre-bending punk-funk-rock band that rose from the Los Angeles club scene to the top of the pop music business in the 1990s. Kiedis brought a kinetic stage presence to the Chili Peppers' high-intensity stage show, as well as songwriting that extolled the virtues of pursuing women and other earthy experiences in a fantasyland version of their hometown. Kiedis' motor-mouthed, cocksure stage persona stood in direct contrast to his offstage life, which was plagued by serious drug addictions. Intense rehabilitation led to reflective material like 1991's "Under the Bridge," which became the Chili Peppers' breakout hit and ticket to mainstream stardom. Over the next two decades, Kiedis battled drug relapses while negotiating the ups and downs of a life in rock-n-roll. The pain and turmoil of his early years paid off in 2011 when the Chili Peppers were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Kiedis' difficult rise to the top of his business served as a powerful reminder of the pitfalls of the pop business, as well as a reminder of the redemptive powers of music.
