Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is joining the list of rock stars to pen memoirs.

On Tuesday Grand Central Publishing announced that it has acquired the still-untitled book.  No publication date has been set, but the publisher promises that the book, which Flea is writing himself,  will cover the musicians "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."

"I love literature deeply," said Flea 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.

An audio edition of the book will also be available.
