The bassists new autobiography lifts the lid on a difficult, violent childhood and a conflicted relationship with Anthony Kiedis
In his new memoir, Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist Flea recalls a Halloween night of genuine horror. At 13, he was trick-or-treating with friends when word spread through his neighborhood that a madman was firing a gun randomly in the street. The terrified kids scattered to find safety in their homes, but when Flea approached his parents house he noticed that all the front windows had been blown out and debris strewn all over the lawn. Once inside, he found his step-father, Walter, with blood smeared over his face and torso, a smoking pistol dangling by his side. He was the lunatic they were all talking about, Flea recalled. It was terrifying and shameful.
And it wasnt the first time something like that happened. Walter would get drunk and something would trigger him and he would freak out and smash everything in the house, Flea said. At times, a gun would come out.
After the Halloween incident, the cops came and arrested Walter. After he went through the system and returned home, he apologized to Flea and his mom profusely. And then, said Flea, the pattern would repeat.
Making sense of events like this wound up driving nearly the entire narrative of Fleas harrowing but, at times also, hilarious memoir, titled Acid for the Children. Its overwhelmingly focused on his formative years, broken by short fast-forwards to his time with the Chili Peppers. Some of the Peppers vignettes deal with the bands own traumas, including Fleas guilt over the heroin-related death of the bands early guitarist Hillel Slovak at just 26. But the main part of the book ends with their very first live show.
