Anthony Kiedis from the Red Hot Chili Peppers came in to promote his new book "Scar Tissue".
He has some really wild stories in it and Howard couldn't to talk to him about it. It turns out that Anthony grew up with a really wild father who let him do drugs and have sex at a very young age. Howard loved the story in the book how when Anthony was in the 8th grade Cher babysat him and got in bed with him nude. Anthony said she was actually wearing a negligee but she did sleep with him in the same bed. Gary came running in and read right from Anthony's book the part where it says that Cher was naked in bed with him. Howard wondered if Anthony actually read the book. Anthony blamed his co-writer Ratso for misinterpreting him.
But Anthony denied a lot of other stuff that was in the book, like the fact that he slept with 100's of women a year and that he said sleeping with a fat girl was one of the best sexual experiences he's had. Gary kept reading those parts right out of the book though, so who knows what was going on? One of the really cool things we learned was that at age 12, Anthony asked his father if he could have sex with a girl his father was seeing.
His father amazingly agreed and set the whole thing up. That was how Anthony lost his virginity!!! But his father didn't let him do it with her again. Then a girl named Melanie showed up who was dying to meet Anthony because she said she had gone through some traumatic things in her life also. Howard wanted to see her freak out meeting him, but she just came in and said Anthony meant a lot to her and flashed her panties.
