This is the book fans have been waiting for since Mother's Milk and Blood Sugar Sex Magik first hit the charts: The first (and only ) official Red Hot Chili Peppers story--an oral and visual autobiography from one of the world's greatest rock groups. Together, Anthony Kiedis, John Frusciante, Flea, and Chad Smith tell the 61-million-album selling band's rollercoaster story, with anecdotes of their concert tours and creative collaborations, memories of surprise successes and dark battles with drug addiction, revelations about their personalities and feelings, and admissions about their lives outside the band. With hundreds of photographs, poster images, ticket stubs, and other RHCP memorabilia, this is a must-have for any die-hard fan.

Praise For The Red Hot Chili Peppers: An Oral/Visual History

“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.”
-Seattle Times
