Video: Dave Grohl Talks About His Upcoming ‘The Storyteller’ Book!

September 17, 2021

This one can’t come fast enough! Dave Grohl’s “The Storyteller” will be published and go on sale on October 5!

You’ll know Grohl from drumming with Nirvana, then starting and singing/guitar for Foo Fighters. 10 albums later, 12 Grammy awards. Starting Them Crooked Vultures with Josh Homme of Queens of the Stoneage and John Paul Jones of Led Zeppelin. Grohl directed the acclaimed documentary “Sound City”. The dude is a monster in the music scene.

And as the leader of one of rock’s biggest bands of all-time, Grohl has travelled the globe and has stories to tell. And a pandemic gave him enough down time to put pen to paper!

Hell froze over when Grohl started an Instagram account (@davestruestories) to tell stories. And then decided to write the book.

Grohl’s book is said to include stories from his childhood, family moments, touring with Nirvana and Foo Fighters, stories about David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, Tom Petty and more!

Grohl said, “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, realizing that my day job with the Foo Fighters was going to go on hold, I started an Instagram account (@davestruestories) 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 a 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 Dey Street Books I’m excited and honored 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!”

Indeed. Turn. It. Up! If Dave Grohl isn’t the coolest rock star on the planet, who is??
