Publisher Description

So, I’ve written a book.
Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities (‘It’s a piece of cake! Just do four hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!’), I have decided to tell these stories just as I have always done, in my own voice. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I’ve recorded and can’t wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child. 
This certainly doesn’t mean that I’m quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it’s like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician. From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters…the list goes on. I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.

The Story Teller- Perfect!

Fabulous story and the narration by Dave himself, which just added to the awesomeness. “Fake it, till you make it” and “People inspire people” right on Dave.
Perfectly told and loved how the stories opened to others and so on. Magic
Valhalla was a perfect end to the book.
The homage to his band mates of the Foo Fighters was moving and understand its importance being written before Taylor’s passing. I hope Dave has found comfort his thoughts and feelings where in the universe before he died.
Shout out to Dave’s amazing Mum! What a lady.
Definitely recommend this audio book.

What would Dave do?

Dave Grohl read me an incredibly riveting, humorous, creative heartfelt story of an artist from then to now - for 8 hours, how was your day?
