Red Hot Chili Peppers bass player Flea has been working on a book for years, and now, he has announced that his debut memoir will arrive this fall. The book, which will be published via Grand Central Publishing, is called “Acid for the Children” and will hit stores in a variety of formats on Sept. 25th.
“Acid for the Children” will discusses Flea’s “fascinating life story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you’d expect from an LA street rat turned world-famous rock star,” according to the book’s official description.
“I love literature deeply,” Flea said when he first announced that he was in the process of writing a book. “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.”
In other news, the Red Hot Chili Peppers have been holed up in the studio, working on a new album. The upcoming set, which will mark the band’s highly-anticipated follow-up to 2016’s “The Getaway,” is expected to arrive sometime later this year or in early 2019.
