Red Hot Chili Peppers frontman Anthony Kiedis is turning his extraordinary life story into a new TV drama series.
U.S. cable network HBO plan to turn Kiedis' 2004 autobiography Scar Tissue into a show.
The tell-all tome gave an explosive insight into Kiedis' early life in Hollywood, when his father was a drug dealer to the stars. He famously included the claim he lost his virginity aged 12 - to his dad's girlfriend.
Kiedis says of his relationship with his dad Spider, "He introduced me to the arts, to a more culturally magnificent life. But some of it was this quite heavy, adult matter that I wasn't capable of digesting."
And the rocker hopes the TV project will help him bond with his father. He tells Daily Variety, "I love mulling over all this raw material. "(Dad's) into it too. He sees it as our last great hurrah. For us to be reconnecting to construct these memories is exciting."
Kiedis is considering narrating the show, and may make regular cameo appearances.
