Acid for the Children

Acid for the Children

by Flea Author

Before he became the iconic bassist for Red Hot Chili Peppers, Flea had a turbulent young life, from Australia to Southern California, finding his meaning and purpose, his people, and his sense of self. Drugs, friends, family, love, and music are all recounted here in poetic style, with rare humility and candor. It opens with a poem Patti Smith wrote about the author, and builds an emotionally satisfying whirlwind.
