Flea's Gonna Pen an Autobiography

A long, successful career, wearing a sock, and a handful of major awards. I mean, wouldn't you?

Of course, Anthony Kiedis took the Scar Tissue title back in the early 2000's. Now it's Mike Balzary's turn to write one up next.

According to a recent press release, the autobiography will be described as:

"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 LA 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."

No word on when the memoir will be out, but mix that in with new Chili Peppers music in the future, and it sounds pretty worth it to me.
