Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea is releasing his memoir, titled "Acid for the Children," on November 4.

"The iconic bassist and co-founder of the Red Hot Chili Peppers tells his fascinating origin story, complete with all the dizzying highs and the gutter lows you'd want from an LA street rat turned world famous rock star," says a synopsis of the memoir from Grand Central Publishing.

New York City punk rock legend Patti Smith has written the forward to the book.

In "Acid for the Children," Flea takes readers on a deeply personal and revealing tour of his formative years, spanning from Australia to the New York City suburbs to Los Angeles.

"I didn't want to write a rock star book," the noted philanthropist and actor said in a recent interview.

"It was about setting a challenge for myself to write something that wasn't about the Chili Peppers and that would have to stand on its own as a piece of literature," he told Publishers Weekly.

A copy of the 400-page hard cover is priced at $14.99.
