Now, kids, don't do drugs. But let me tell you how great my drug-driven life was. Narrator Rider Strong does a credible job telling the life story of Red Hot Chili Peppers singer Anthony Kiedis, even though his voice sounds a bit weak in places that call for a strong delivery. But there's something disingenuous about rock stars who warn about the horrors of drug abuse while writing long-winded books describing, in minute detail, the great sex, rollicking adventures, and incredible highs they've experienced. Predictably, Kiedis's world fell apart when the realities of a life of drug abuse came crashing down. Even so, it's hard to feel sorry for a guy who's been a selfish jerk his entire life.
