Spider and Son

Show Summary

Spider and Son is an HBO drama series about the early years of the Red Hot Chili Peppers' front man Anthony Kiedis. The show traces the rock star's meteoric rise to success back to the less flashy days of his childhood, when he lived with his drug-dealing father in 1970s West Hollywood. Anthony's father (who goes by Spider) moved with his young son from Michigan to the fast-paced world of Hollywood. Spider's young dreams of stardom had given way to a more practical career path-selling drugs to rock stars and celebrities. The world young Anthony Kiedis grows up in is at times shockingly adult, as his father makes no attempt to shield the boy from the rampant drug use and casual sex of the rock and roll lifestyle. Spider may never have reached personal stardom, but he's able to establish himself deep into 1970s celebrity culture and earns a name for himself by selling drugs to high-profile friends like The Who and Led Zeppelin. Spider and Son is a gripping portrait of a family that is anything but conventional, and the young man who was bred from birth for rock and roll stardom.moreless
