    Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea has a negotiated a deal with Grand Central Publishing to publish his memoir.

    There is no release date or title for the tome as of yet, but Flea will pen the book himself and will share stories from his young, rebellious life on the streets of L.A., where he and bandmate Anthony Kiedis met and developed their sometimes complex friendship and musical collaboration.

    Flea will also detail his experiences with hard drugs and the long and storied creative journey of the RHCP, as well. As a self-professed book nerd, Flea plans to do this write, er, right.

    "I love literature deeply," said Flea in a press release. "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."

    Would you read Flea's memoir?
