Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers reflects on home life and getting booted from places

During a recent interview with the YouTube show, As It Lays, Red Hot Chili Peppers founding member Anthony Kiedis discussed several random, irreverent questions from the host. Here, Kiedis reveals how he got a one-time banning from West Hollywood’s Rainbow Bar and Grill.

Host: Is there any place you’ve been where you aren’t allowed back?

Kiedis: I did get eighty-sixed from The Rainbow Bar and Grill when I was sixteen but eventually they had to lift the ban. It’s a true story. Also, Canada wasn’t that happy inviting me into their country for a while [Kiedis shrugs]. You know, the most polite place on Earth and then they weren’t asking me to come back but all things must pass. [Kiedis sighs]

Host: Is there something that you love most about your home?

Kiedis: What Tom Hardy said: “Being alone in your house with your snacks is a greatly undervalued experience.” We, me, bitch and moan and get all anxious, twisted, neurotic and sociopathic and hey, I’m just home alone peacefully with some snacks. So, I like the snacks but of course, my roommate is my favorite thing about my house. He’s eleven and we share the same last name.
