Overview

Fornication: The Red Hot Chilli Peppers Story by Jeff Apter

Here is the extreme story of the indestructible LA group from their early funk days to eventual success as one of America's top-selling bands. Despite an epic reputation for exhibitionism, drug taking and debauchery, through it all the Chili Peppers have continued to produce records that shock, challenge and intrigue their fans. Author Jeff Apter has interviewed dozens of people - many speaking openly for the first time - who have moved in and out of the Chili Peppers' circle over the past three decades. He has spoken with former Chili Peppers, life-long friends, classmates, family members, album producers and music business insiders, as he plots the band's rise from Hollywood 'latchkey kids', willing to test-drive any drug or woman they could score, to the camomile-tea sipping superstars of today, whose only true family is this band.
