Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Michael Balzary – better known as Flea – will publish a self-written memoir via Grand Central Publishing, announced a press release this week.

“I love literature deeply,” says Flea. “I view books as sacred things, and in writing my story, I’m going to do my best o honor the form that has played such a huge part in shaping who I am.”

The as-yet-untitled memoir will chronicle stories for Flea’s young, rebellious life on the streets of LA where he befriends Anthony Kiedis and founds the Red Hot Chili Peppers with Kiedis and two other high school friends; details about his sometimes complex friendship and collaboration with Kiedis; his myriad experiences with hard drugs; and, of course, the tumultuous creative journey of the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers through its various incarnations over the last 30 years.
