Flea, bass player for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, has announced the impending release of his memoir. The book, published by Grand Central Publishing, will be written by Flea with no outside help.

"I love literature deeply," Flea said 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."

According to Grand Central, the memoir will cover the full range of Flea's busy life:

"Flea will share stories from his intense and dynamic life, including: 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 L.A. 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."

No release date for the book has been announced.
