Red Hot Chili Peppers lead singer Anthony Kiedis began using marijuana and cocaine at the age of 12 with his father, later trying heroin accidentally for the first time at age 14. After a heroin overdose killed close friend and bandmate Hillel Slovak in 1988, he vowed never to use again. He's been in and out of rehab since, relapsing twice, but has claimed to have been clean since December 2000.
