One Question Interviews: Crushed

Jeff Bobula (Crushed)

SPB: What is your favorite book about music?
Bobula: Scar Tissue By Anthony Kiedis
I can barely fucking read, let alone discuss reading, but Scar Tissue really kicked me in the nuts. I've never been much of a Pepperman, and usually anything that screams "Hollywood" or "funk" makes me want to crap myself, but this is one of the most intimate and real looks at addiction I've ever encountered - the sweet nights that turn into shit months and years. 
A lot of people take away that dude banged a bunch of his old man's lady friends or was getting wasted when he didn't have pubes or whatever, but what really sucked me in was how Kiedis' addiction affected nearly every element of his life – his relationships, band dynamic, drive, performances, and so on. And will continue to do so for the rest of his life.
The one thing that pissed me off is that even when he was super fucking rich he would go score and party with lowlife gangbangers downtown. At what point do you get a pro dealer that can deliver to your beach house in Malibu or some shit?

Mandatory reading for those that snort.
