Anthony Kiedis talks about HBO series "Scar Tissue"

Anthony Kiedis has shed some more light on Scar Tissue, the upcoming HBO series about his life. Speaking to, Kiedis says, "I've already shed my tears and yelled. The painful part is behind me. Now, it is fun. It is a project I get to do with my father later in his life -- when he is ready to reflect."

He also adds that the show will feature, quote, "naked women and profanity." Finally, Kiedis promises, "It will have one of the best soundtracks on TV."As reported last week, the HBO series will focus not on Kiedis' life with THE RED HOT CHILI PEPPERS, but on his youth -- specifically, the move from Michigan to Hollywood with his drug-dealer dad.

The singer's 2004 autobiography was also called ScarTissue, but the HBO series will not be based directly on the book.

Chili Peppers to play Vegas Rocks festival

Wales Online is reporting that Dave Peters - front man from 80's Second British Invasion band The Alarm, who not only sounded a lot like U2, but sported Bonoian mullets too - is putting together a massive outdoor charity festival a la Live Aid called Vegas Rocks.

Despite having a pretty lame name, the early line up has promise: Guns N Roses, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots, Motorhead, The Damned and, of course, The Alarm.

Snippet of new John Frusciante interview

As we all know, Tanya Vece of The Horse Chronicles indie zine is a long-term fan of John, has previously interviewed him on a couple of occasions and regardless of the version of the zine, there's always a page reserved for a little John tribute.

So...she interviewed him again. And the whole interview will be available on 15th November. However, I asked nicely for a teaser and here it is - for the readers of Invisible Movement.

Tanya Vece: For years now I have been referring to you as my inspiration and genius. But everytime people who don't know you approach you they yell John Mother Fucking Frusciante! How do you feel about it?

John Frusciante: (laughs) Anthony started it. He said it at a concert once and it stuck. Even the wheat grass guy at Whole Foods said "shot ready for John Mother Fucking Frusciante". It's funny.
