Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea to Publish Memoir
Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist and co-founder Flea will publish a memoir, Time is reporting. Working without a ghostwriter, Flea will publish the follow-up to Anthony Kiedis’ Scar Tissue, which the singer put out in 2004.
While there is no release date scheduled, Grand Central Publishing recently confirmed they acquired Michael Balzary’s (Flea) memoir.
According to the press release, Flea will cover the following:
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 tumultuous creative journey of the legendary Red Hot Chili Peppers through its various incarnations over the last 30 years, according to Flea.
