Anthony Kiedis - Kiedis Forgave Father For Upbringing After Son's Birth

Rocker Anthony Kiedis finally forgave his father for his unconventional upbringing after becoming a dad himself.
The Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman was introduced to drugs and rock 'n' roll early on by his dealer father Blackie Dammett, who provided narcotics to some of the biggest bands and Hollywood stars.
Despite his upbringing leading to a serious drug problem, Kiedis now understands his father's actions after becoming a dad in 2007 to his son Everly.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "The fact my relationship with my son is so good makes me forgiving of my father and also appreciative.
"Now I can look back and say I actually like the upbringing I had and my father was very attentive and a great educator. He just didn't have the same tools I have today and there was no way he could have acquired them at that point in time. So, yeah, I forgive him for his mistakes and I thank him for giving me so much of his time and energy."
