Red Hot Chili Peppers' Flea To Write Autobiography

(hennemusic) Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has signed a book deal with Grand Central Publishing to write his memoir. No publication date has yet been set for the as-yet untitled memoir; Hachette Audio will publish an audiobook edition

Flea is expected to share stories from his intense and dynamic life, including his move from a "normal" upbringing in the suburbs of New York to Los Angeles to live a bohemian life with a jazz musician step-father; his 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 creative journey of the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers through its various incarnations over the last 30 years.

"I love literature deeply," said Flea. "I view books as sacred things, and in writing my story, I'm going to do my best to honor the form that has played such a huge part in shaping who I am." more on this story
