Dave Grohl needs no introduction. He is one of the most respected musicians in the global music scene ever since his recorded debut with Nirvana on 1991’s generation-defining ‘Nevermind.’ In 1995, he took centre stage as the frontman of the Foofighters’ and released their self-titled debut. This debut record was the first of ten – the most recent being the No 1 album “Medicine at Midnight.” He has achieved many successes in his career including sixteen Grammy wins and two Emmy wins for his work as a director.
When talking about the book, Dave Grohl explains;
‘There is a common thread that runs throughout everything that I do: storytelling. Whether in song, documentary film or on the page, I have always felt compelled to share moments from my life. This inclination is a huge part of what excites me creatively but also as a human being. In March 2020, realising that my day job with the Foo Fighters was going to go on hold, I started an Instagram account and decided to focus all of my creative energy on writing some of my stories down, something I love doing but I’ve never really had the time for. I soon found that the reward I felt every time I posted a story was the same as the feeling I get when playing a song to an audience, so I kept on writing. The response from readers was as soul-filling as any applause in an arena. So, I took stock of all the experiences I’ve had in my life – incredible, difficult, funny and emotional – and decided it was time to finally put them into words. Now with the amazing people at Simon & Schuster I’m excited and honoured to announce THE STORYTELLER, a collection of memories of a life lived loud. From my early days growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, to hitting the road at the age of 18, and all the music that followed, I can now share these adventures with the world, as seen and heard from behind the microphone. Turn it up!’
“The Storyteller” talks about his life as well as a celebration of music. Fans of his will read hilarious tales about his childhood, family life, leaving home to pursue a career, stories about Nirvana, Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, and Paul McCartney. He is well-respected for being a known collaborator for all the greatest artist in the industry, and we get to read about all the incredible muscians that he has worked with over the years. Everything that shaped him to be the man he is today will all become clear upon reading.
