Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea is set to release his autobiography.

The 51-year-old musician has signed a deal with Grand Central Publishing and the book will focus on his early life, battle with drug addiction, life on the road with the band mates and his career in film.

According to Time.com, the autobiography will also see Flea "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," along with "his young, rebellious life on the streets of LA."

Flea will be the second member of the band to pen his own tome, following in the footsteps of frontman Anthony Kiedis, whose 2004 memoir Scar Tissue reached number one on the New York Times' Bestseller List.

The as-yet-untitled autobiography, which has not yet been given a release date, also promises to feature "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."
