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 4 hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!") I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. 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.

Once you are in you are in

As a Foo Fighters fan from the beginning, this book is an insightful look into a guy that I consider one of the coolest musicians of my generation. Dave Grohl is so appreciative of everything this planet has to offer, I always had a sense of that for some reason but actually reading it made it more clear.

Enjoyed

I enjoyed storyteller as it’s exactly what you’d expect. A collection of stories by an interesting and awesome artist. At first it felt all over the place but it was neat to read about all the connections you might not have known about. Like when I realized foo’s drummer was with Alanis on the Jagged little pill tour. (News to me maybe jot music die hards)

Storyteller Inspired me as a Father!

The book storyteller inspired me to be a better father. I love music, rock, and I really admire Dave Grohl's personality. My father lived a very hard childhood. distant from her parents had to learn how to survive. Now I am the father of two girls in the 13, 9 and a 10 boy, I feel inspired to take away from ideals and rigid concepts to give them the openness of seeking what their heart dictates. great Book.
