Dave Grohl, former drummer of Nirvana and frontman/guitarist/gentleman of his own mega successful band Foo Fighters (who celebrate their 25th year of making noise this very year) publishes his first book, titled THE STORYTELLER: TALES OF LIFE AND MUSIC on 5 October 2021 via Day Street Books.
With lots of time on his hand, because of the tour-canceling-coronavirus, he started the @davetruestories Instagram account, sharing stories and anecdotes, which led eventually to this book.
Publisher Day Street Books says the book includes “spectacular stories about Nirvana,
Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, playing drums for Tom Petty
on Saturday Night Live, performing at the White House, and even swing dancing with AC/DC.”
Dave Grohl about the project: “It’s 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!”.
