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.

    Fantastic - hearing Dave tell his story was even better than reading it. Funny, inspiring, fascinating, and engaging. If you're a Nirvana and/or FF fan, you will love this book. This made me admire him even more than before. What a down-to-earth, humble, grateful guy!

    As Dave would say, this book is F-ing AWESOME !! I laughed out loud, sobbed at points, and teared up often. Listened to the whole thing in one sitting. And still want more !! Thanks, Dave !

    Killer listen! Been a fan since NIRVANA. I’m an amateur drummer and I too play drums with my teeth. The story about the “kitten “ with his mom at his studio was one of many great stories. Highly recommended.

  • Sarah R.

    Definitely recommend. This was a fun read.

  • Shannon H.

  • Michael Z.

    One of the best musicians in the world.

    I’ve loved nirvana / and the foos since their inception… I particularly loved Dave and his attitude towards life specially his genuine way of expensing himself . This book is just a confirmation of What I’ve always thought of the guy … with an in-depth view on his believes and philosophy on life !!! Great read !!! And long live rock n roll !!!!!

    Ditto the positive reviews below. He is so funny and his story is very interesting, whether you are into him because of Foo Fighters, Nirvana or are just a music fan. Rather than tell every little intricate detail about his life up to this point, he seems to choose some of the most poignant stories and goes mostly in chronological order. I am looking forward to reading his Mom’s book also. He was lucky to have her and her support for his ambitions.

  • Shawn M.

    LOVED IT! Loved that Dave narrated! Great to follow him through his life journey. If u loved Nirvana or the Foo’s a DEFINITE book u must read! (Listen to. It’s way better listening to Dave tell it.) highly recommend.

  • Amanda S.

    This book is so awesome! If you love the Foo Fighters, or just want something interesting to listen to, get this, you won’t regret it! I cannot stress enough how great this book is. Dave Grohl narrates and you can feel his energy and how genuine and real he is. If you ever wondered if he’s as fun and cool as he seems in his music videos and interviews, this helps solidify that image. It really made me wish even more that one day I could run into him and just give him a high five and thank him for the soundtrack of my youth.
