Inhaltsangabe

The strange tale of a boy named Flea starts in Rye, NY. It was all very normal. But soon his parents divorced and his mother Patricia remarried a jazz musician. Flea's stepfather frequently invited musicians to his house for jam sessions which sparked Flea's interest in music. The family moved to Los Angeles, where Flea became fascinated with the trumpet, idolising musicians like Miles, Dizzy, and Louis.

But the family soon fell apart. 'I was raised in a very violent, alcoholic household,' Flea later said. 'I grew up being terrified of my parents, particularly my father figures. It caused [me] a lot of trouble later in life.' He began smoking weed at 13 and became a daily user of harder drugs. He was on the streets by 14 and soon after, met another social outcast and drug user named Anthony Kiedis. They formed a band that would become the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Acid for the Children is pure, uncut Flea, with nothing left unsaid.

Great story lost in weak story telling

There is a great story behind Flea, but the way this book tells it leaves much to be desired. He jumps around, cuts in and out of different time periods. Would have been much better if he tried to construct a stronger more linear narrative to tell his story.

Not as great as his music

Everyone has its own way of expressing emotions, for Flea it's definitely music, not writing. Although it's cool he has read his story himself, feels a bit like sitting at a campfire and listening to the story of his life. But this book is for hardcore fans only.

The audio form of this book never flees aways from emotional attachment while the author reads his own words with out-louding choked-up laughter.
