The Red Hot Chili Peppers is the iconic band's audacious look back at their thirty-year odysseyin their own words and accompanied by more than 300 spectacular photos and ephemera. Intimate, breathtaking, and outrageous, this is the essence of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
"I am struck with the moments of these photos, the feelings of the times they were taken, and where we were at on our beautiful and happy-sad journey. It's pretty fucking heavy, actually, like thinking how much we have changed over the years, and all the different dynamics of our lives that shaped us, and also realizing so clearly that nothing has changed at allwe're all still just trying to get it on, make something great.
"It is all here, nothing can hide: all the honesty, the pretense, the courage and one-of-a-kind-ness, the unbridled joy, the melancholy, and the shields we put up to shelter our scared, vulnerable little selves."
The Red Hot Chili Peppers have emerged from Hollywood's underground club scene to become one of the biggest rock bands of all time. This is their story, as told by Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Flea, and Chad Smith. This is the band's first book.
“A raucous collection of photographs and ephemera.”
-New York Times Book Review
“In their own words, accompanied by tons of fantastic photos, the Chili Peppers present a compelling case for their role in the alt-rock revolution of the ‘90s, and the book ends up as fun to read as their music is to listen to.”
