What Is Anthony Kiedis’ Net Worth In 2021? Is He Richest Member Of Red Hot Chili Peppers
Starting a band to change the violence and misogyny-oriented punk rock scene in LA, Anthony Kiedis has certainly earned himself a solid place in the music industry. He embraced the motto to create a more peaceful environment since the very beginning of Red Hot Chili Peppers which is the main reason why they became one of the most successful bands of all time.
Kiedis founded a band with his high school friends, Hillel Slovak, Flea, and Jack Irons. In the beginning, Anthony was rapping while his bandmates were improvising music. Hillel Slovak and Jack Irons were both replaced soon by Cliff Martines and Jack Sherman. After acquiring the name Red Hot Chili Peppers, the band released their self-titled debut album in 1984.
After earning worldwide success with the ‘Mother’s Milk’ album, RHCP achieved their biggest commercial success with the release of their seventh album, ‘Californication.’ Kiedis has contributed to the band as being the main songwriter which evolved immensely over the years.
In addition to being the frontman of the four-times Grammy Awards winner band, Anthony has been involved in various other projects, including cinema, which brought him a pretty good income but not enough to make him the richest member of Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Anthony Kiedis Net Worth $140 Million
The co-founder and lead singer of Red Hot Chili Peppers, Anthony Kiedis has a net worth of $140 million, which is considerably less than the net worths of many other best-selling bands’ vocalists.
After graduating from high school with honors, Anthony later enrolled at the University of California, Los Angeles to study writing. However, the future of his career changed completely when he started jamming with his high school friends Hillel Slovak, Flea, and Jack Irons. In time, they managed to become the most successful band in the history of alternative rock music by creating a brand new musical style in the early ’80s by combining the sounds of funk and punk rock.
In addition to his ongoing career with Red Hot Chili Peppers, Kiedis has explored a career in acting and landed a couple of roles in the film and TV industry, such as his roles in Keanu Reeves movie ‘Point Break’ and Charlie Sheen‘s ‘The Chase.’ Even though his personal life was affected by his drug addiction for years, he managed to become sober and remain as well since 2000. Anthony is also known for owning at least $30 million worth of real estate around the United States.
