Courtney Love and Flea share the love over Acid for the Children, Flea’s writing debut, which has just been released and details Flea’s tumultuous childhood.

“When I’m rocking a groove, there is only nature working, ain’t no one gonna rock it harder than me,” Flea writes. “Free from all prison of my mind’s construct, I am a fucking mama grizzly bear protecting her cubs, and I don’t care if I die. I trust the animal instinct completely. I let go of every thought, let go of the world, and KILL the groove.”

“Thank you Flea for this insight and meditation” Love writes. “Me too!”

“Ahh Courtney I love you,” Flea responds. “Thank you for reading, Thankyou [sic] for caring.”

Flea’s memoir focuses on the earlier, more tumultuous years of his life. He shared an insight about his writing process in another Instagram post:

“On November 5th, the thing that I spent hundreds of hours quietly writing at home, in hotels, on buses, and wherever I could get some minutes of solitude, will no longer exist as a process of my thoughts, but will take on a new life as a tangible thing to hold. Thank you trees and ink.”
