Phil Donahue: Because of your show, I came out to my parents.
Anthony Kiedis: That wasn’t really my intention though.
Donahue: Well, we fought and he fell down.
Kiedis: I was riding waves. Inspiration is a weird thing.
Donahue: You are really fascinating.
Kiedis: It's true. I can't complain.
Donahue: It's very, very hard to dissent. People are angry.
Kiedis: They were like medicine to my spiritually deficient existence that stopped working and left me with an even bigger void. So, basically I loved them, but they didn’t love me back.
Donahue: I get it now. I was thinking that it was a nightmare and that I going to wake up and kept pinching myself hoping it wasn't real.
Kiedis: There were a few surprises in store.
Donahue: Yeah. We always wanted them to wonder what was tomorrow.
Kiedis: We give each other the opportunity to learn and change all the time.
Donahue: Be proud and, you know, don't be quiet like the white people want you to be.
Kiedis: Then I got a hold of a Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five cassette tape and I knew that my career path had been paved. I sold my city house about a month after living in Malibu.
Donahue: We have people in cages, with no Habeas, no phone calls, no Red Cross.
Kiedis: Even then I remained more driven to skate, alter my mind, dream about girls and run roughshod with my amigos.
Donahue: I'm not sure. You know, peace is dangerous.
Kiedis: Anyway, let it rain double-edged swords and two-sided coins - it’s all part of the bargain.
Donahue: I don't Tweet. How many bombs are you going to drop?
Kiedis: This amount of self-analysis is already a bit beyond my limit.
