Red Hot Chili Peppers Reveal Drug ‘Worse Than Heroin’


Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea discussed getting high with Anthony Kiedis in a way that seems almost worse than heroin in his new book ‘Acid For The Children.’ In the chapter ‘Here Come The Geezenslavs,’ he said he and Anthony would scam pharmacists for syringes they could use to inject coke, and gave the step by step way they would prepare to use the drugs, and the moment you know it’s entered your vein. Flea recently canceled a reunion with a Red Hot Chili Peppers bandmate.

Flea told Junkee in a new interview though that he managed to escape being a drug addict, unlike his bandmates Anthony Kiedis and John Frusciante, who both struggled with heroin use in the 90’s.

“Through all of that, like believe it or not, I never got addicted to drugs. I experimented wildly and to the point that I really hurt myself with it. I wanted to write about that, about the absurdity and the craziness of that because it was a big part of my fucking life. At the same time, I didn’t want to glorify it because there’s nothing glorious about it. And I’m not proud of it, you know? But I felt like this is a part of who I was. I started doing drugs at a very young age, I spent a lot of energy on getting them, doing them and recovering from them. And it’s a big part of my story.”

John Frusciante reportedly just revealed why he rejoined Red Hot Chili Peppers. TechnicolorHyperbole recently reacted to Red Hot Chili Peppers firing Josh Klinghoffer to bring back John Frusciante on Reddit. They said, “That’s disappointing but obviously inevitable. I don’t want to hear solely from Josh, I want to hear from Anthony and Flea too (Chad has made a few small statements)

I know I’ll probably get mega downvoted but I actually believed in Fleas whole love and family thing, it’s kind of hard to do that when they kick out someone. I know John is a major part of that family but he’s not an original part.

Makes me wonder that if Hillel had quit in 1987 instead of sadly passing away would the band have kicked out John to let him back in?”

K0stil responded, “Well they kicked Jack Sherman out when Hillel made himself availiable and they kicked Jesse Tobias when Dave Navarro made himself availiable. History repeats itself.”

TechnicolorHyperbole shot back, “I agree but it still stings. OHM is my favourite RHCP album and if I wasn’t 3 years old when Dave was fired and John returned I could have felt the same way LOL. I am excited for new music but I had invested in Josh and how he made the music feel to me and I totally respect the people who Johns music (in and out of the band) touches in that way.” You can read the full Flea piece at Junkee.
