Red Hot Chili Peppers rocker Flea will lift the lid on his wild life in a new memoir.

The guitarist, real name Michael Balzary, has signed a deal with Grand Central Publishing to release a book detailing his career, as well as his personal ups and downs.

A statement from the publishing house reads: “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, according to Flea.”

A release date has yet to be set. The book will follow frontman Anthony Kiedis’ hugely successful 2004 rock memoir “Scar Tissue,” which became a New York Times Bestseller.
