Anthony Kiedis found fame for his riveting lyrical style that revolves around sex, drugs, and rock and roll, which subsequently evolved into a wider and more transformative spectrum. It was in 1999 when his band, Red Hot Chili Peppers, released ’Californication’ ‘that he felt he could take full control of his voice while singing.’ ‘Under the Bridge’ (1991), ‘Can’t Stop’ (2002), and ’Snow (Hey Oh)’ (2006) were some of their most famous tracks.
In 1991, he was cast as the thug surfer named Tone and appeared alongside Keannu Reeves and Patrick Swayze in the heist film, ‘Point Break’ (1991).
When he began as a child actor, he took the stage alias, Cole Dammett. He also named his son, Everly Bear, after his most favorite band of all time, the Everly Brothers.
