Blackie Dammett: Lords of the Sunset Strip

As we’ve been reporting, Anthony’s father, Blackie Dammett, has been writing his autobiography and I’m really happy to be able to say it’s now finished and online! It’s called ‘Lords of the Sunset Strip’ -obviously referring to the time when Blackie and the young Anthony were involved in the club scene on Sunset Blvd in Los Angeles (as also mentioned in AK’s own autobiography, ‘Scar Tissue.’)

Clearly, as it’s Blackie’s autobiography, it contains stories and mention of his son, Anthony Kiedis, but it also mentions the Red Hot Chili Peppers so it’s a great read for fans of Anthony himself and the band as a whole.

It’s available to download from Amazon (I won’t give links as you have to download from the Amazon website for the country you are in; just search for the book and it’s really easy to find!). Blackie has given so much to the RHCP community over the years so please support him in this venture and download it; the book has been a real labour of love to him. Enjoy everyone!

And on a personal note:

Thank you so much Blackie for the mention in the acknowledgements; it means so much to me. It’s been an honour to have helped support you in any way I could. I’m so delighted this book is now published after all of your hard work and efforts. Congratulations! Rebecca Billingham <3

 

 

 

Many thanks to Ines Hrka? Perkovi? for help with this!

However, publication of this long-awaited book has just moved another step closer! A few minutes ago, Blackie published the list of contents on his Facebook page:

Apologies due to real life making this on the tail end, but Tony Woolliscroft is exhibiting his Red Hot Chili Peppers and Foo Fighters photos again in another display to follow on from the UK exhibitions of his photos at Rock City Art, Bedford and then Stoke-on-Trent but this time, it’s made it up to Leeds.

I went to both the Bedford and Stoke displays and if they are anything to go by, this current exhibition is well worth a visit- the photos of it look amazing! It runs until the end of February at Leeds Gallery, York Street, Leeds, LS9 8AG

Early RHCP Photos for Sale

If anyone is interested, Richard Alan White has contacted me to say he is selling some of his photographs of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, including Anthony Kiedis, taken at the Mother’s Milk aftershow party on the top of the West Hollywood Hyatt Hotel on Sunset Blvd, back in September (22nd) 1989.

The photos have been locked in a safe for the past 25 years and were recently uncovered by Richard. A double set prints were originally made (some of the original photos were given to Anthony) and then the negatives were put into a vault and basically forgotten about until recently when they were ‘re-discovered’.

If you are interested in finding out any more details such as prices, sizes, print runs and to see more of the images for sale, further information can be found HERE (Please note; these photos are initially for sale for three days only)
