Bass player Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers is penning his debut memoir
Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea has lots to say, and he’s compiling it all into a memoir. Grand Central Publishing has announced that it’s currently working with the bass player to publish the as-yet-untitled book.
“I love literature deeply,” Flea said in a statement. “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.”
Flea is writing the full memoir himself, and Grand Central Publishing says the read will follow the musician’s “move from a ‘normal’ upbringing in the suburbs of New York to Los Angeles to live a bohemian life with a jazz musicianstep-father; his young, rebellious life on the streets of LA where he befriends Anthony Kiedis and founds the Red Hot Chili Peppers 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.”
Flea’s book will also be available in an audio edition. No publication date has been scheduled yet.
