Red Hot Chili Peppers Frontman Treated for Kidney Disease


LOS ANGELES—Anthony Keidis, the lead singer for the rock band Red Hot Chili Peppers, was treated for kidney disease recently and narrowly avoided organ failure, according to a report by the New York Daily News.

“Organ failure was a possibility,” the New York Daily News quoted an anonymous source as saying. “There was talk of how to get him on a transplant list, to cover all the bases, but that opened up a whole new can of worms because people with histories of drug and alcohol abuse are less likely to receive the organs they need.”

The treatment Keidis received at L.A.’s Cedar-Sinai hospital helped and he is getting better, according to the New York Daily News.
