RHCP's Flea to release memoir, "Acid for the Children," in September

Credit: Steve KerosRed Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea will publish a memoir this fall. The book, published by Grand Central Publishing, is titled Acid for the Children, and will arrive September 25.

According to its official description, Acid for the Children will tell 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."

The news of the memoir's release comes a full four years after Flea first announced in 2014 he'd be writing a book.

"I love literature deeply," Flea said at the time. "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."
