Red Hot Chili Pepper’s bassist, Flea has written a 400-page autobiography called Acid For The Children. It’s been 5 years in the making and was originally scheduled for last year.

The memoir, as promoted, takes readers on a deeply personal and revealing tour of Flea’s formative years with hilarious anecdotes, poetical meditations, and occasional flights of fantasy.

Acid for the Children features a foreword by Patti Smith and is scheduled for release on November 5.
