He has been in the band since the start in 1983. He is known for his fast rapping, but in more recent albums he has leaned toward singing. Anthony is and was one of most popular rockers and frontmen, but with singing he has had a lot of problems, until the Californication album when he felt that he could control his voice well. His singing ability has greatly improved over the years, reaching its peak on Stadium Arcadium. He is known for his on stage charisma and high sex appeal within the band and the public. He released a memoir book called Scar Tissue in 2004 which sold a lot of copies, getting to number 17 in the best sellers list. Anthony had a lot of drug problems, first in his early life, then in time of One Hot Minute album. He has been clean from 24.12.2000.
