The Storyteller
The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music | Dave Grohl
111 posts | 103 read | 7 reading | 50 to read
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.

I loved this book. All I knew about Dave Grohl was that he was a member of the Foo Fighters. I never knew he was the drummer of Nirvana. He's a family man, once flying from Australia immediately after a show to take a daughter to a father daughter dance, spent a few hours, then flew back to Australia for another show. He ha amazing stories and seems to be an incredibly nice, humble guy. #nonfiction2022 @Riveted_Reader_Melissa

I think this one was meant for people who have more appreciation for this music genre. That being said, I very much enjoyed the ride all the same♥️

Dave Grohl did a great job of narrating his memoir on audio. He definitely has a voice for storytelling. Through the chapter stories,we learn how he became a rock and roll star. He has a deep love for his mother, his wife, his children and Paul McCartney who he now considers a friend. There are an over abundance of expletives in this book, which I abhor. My opinion is that the profanity was not necessary, and detracted from my reading enjoyment.

I was drawn to punk/grunge, but the scene seemed fueled by apathy. I spent enough time in that headspace. This book is a whole lotta Grohl geeking out, and I am here. for. it. Yes, some tough stories. We all have those. The best parts are the ones where he recognizes in the moment that he‘s living his dream. It‘s also cool that he creates that moment for others.

This book was so interesting, I was genuinely sucked into his stories and life. It made me feel like a part of the punk-grunge scene in the 90s. Whether you‘re a fan of Dave Grohl or have no idea who he is you‘ll find yourself being taken along on his adventures and discovering a whole new way of life. It made me laugh and even tear up a little, this is a man who truly loves and lives for music.

God how I love a memoir told through individual vignettes illustrative of large parts of the writer‘s life! When it‘s done well, as Dave has, it has more emotional impact for me. And Dave is quite the storyteller!! I love how he is a nerd and the ultimate fan of other musicians. I adore his fierce love of his daughters. And I respect how kindly he treated his band mates and friends in this memoir.

@Cinfhen you were right: this was special.

Cinfhen I‘m so glad you loved this one!!! It was so good on audio @squirrelbrain and now that the band has lost Taylor Hawkins it makes all the stories even more meaningful. I am not a fan of Foo Fighters @BarbaraBB but you‘ll become one of Dave Grohl -🥰🥰🥰 1mo
peaknit I am a huge fan, and it‘s been sad with Taylor‘s passing wondering what is next for them. No doubt, Dave will have a plan but I think it may involve reinvention, like after Nirvana ended. This book was wonderful. He is a great storyteller, his HBO series Sonic Highways tells stories of music by state of region, highly recommend, as well as his paramount series with his mom , Cradle to Stage. 1mo
Riveted_Reader_Melissa @peaknit That series sounds great 1mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain the audio made the book for me, so I‘m sorry you didn‘t get to hear that. 1mo
Megabooks @squirrelbrain and that you! 1mo
Megabooks @Cinfhen I remember when that was announced. So sad. He came across like someone you‘d want as a friend: smart, nerdy, and a bit (a lot) mischievous but also super loyal. 1mo
Megabooks @peaknit I had heard about cradle to the stage, but I‘ll have to check out sonic highways since I have hbo at the moment. Thanks for the heads up. I‘m very interested to see what he does next, and I really feel for him losing Taylor because they seemed so close. Very hard for fans as well. 1mo
Suet624 I‘m a huge fan of the Foos and of Dave and of Taylor. I feel as if I haven‘t fully recovered from Taylor‘s death. For years I‘ve watched a Foo Fighters video almost daily. I have Dave‘s book but as is my way I have it stacked right where I can see it but not yet ready to read it. Because once I do, it will be done. 🤷🏻‍♀️🤦🏻‍♀️❤️ (edited) 1mo
Megabooks @Suet624 i feel that. I‘ve don‘t the same thing with favorite tv shows. There are some things you just don‘t want to end. 💜 1mo

Mr likeable makes himself a little more likeable. If you're a fan, you'll probably not learn too much but there's still a good amount of rockstar stories to make this a worthwhile and enjoyable read.

I don‘t read a lot of memoirs, but as a huge Foo Fighters fan, I knew I needed to listen to the this one, narrated by Dave Grohl himself. Full of heartfelt and honest tales from his childhood, years on the road as a rock star, and his family life. The chapter about the grief of dealing with the deaths of Kurt Cobain and his childhood best friend was extra sad knowing of the recent tragic passing of his band mate Taylor Hawkins. 👇🏼

Kimberlone Despite the privilege and comfort that comes from being a rich and famous rock star, Dave seems like a legitimately humble and grateful person, and he makes it clear he considers himself to be the luckiest man on earth. I had the great privilege of seeing the Foo Fighters for the first time last summer when they played their first show in Alaska last summer. It was the longest concert I‘ve ever attended - nearly 3 hours of rocking with the Foos. 2mo
Kimberlone If you‘re a fan of Dave, I‘d HIGHLY recommend his recent Hot Ones episode. One of the absolute best! https://youtu.be/nutcZOBGhjs 2mo
vivastory I don't listen to audio books often, but I think I'm definitely going that route for this one. I agree about seeing them live. I was lucky enough to see them on tour for their first album and years later it remains one of the best concert experiences. 2mo

Kimberlone @vivastory that is amazing! Incredible that they are still rocking so hard 25+ years later. 2mo
Velvetfur That looks like such a good book, but now I know he narrates the audiobook I'd chose that format instead. Thanks for such a good review! 2mo
Suet624 I have the book standing up on my dining room table in my tiny apartment so I can see his face from almost anywhere. I still mourn Taylor's death & I feel so sad for Dave & the band. My 4 adult children bought me a ticket as a gift to see the band at Fenway Park 4 years ago. Seeing them play, and in that particular location, was just the best. I watch a video of theirs at least four times a week. I'm postponing the joy of reading the book. :) 2mo
Kimberlone @Suet624 it was definitely a bittersweet experience listening to Dave‘s narration of the book. When I put the audiobook on hold from my library months ago I never could have guessed that Taylor would have passed, so that element definitely cast a shadow over my listening. 2mo
Kimberlone @Velvetfur the narration is fantastic. You can even hear the emotion in his voice at certain points. Highly recommend!! 2mo

I started this last week while we were in Hawaii. Foo Fighters & Nirvana are 2 of my favorite bands plus I love Dave Grohl. It was a good story & interesting to learn about his journey as a musician (plus is reflections on Kurt Cobain). My only quip is that there was some chronological order but then he would go back & forth (which I appreciate that he‘s incorporating experiences into his journey). #bookspin book

Highly recommend this one. It‘s well written, with humor, heart, and evidence of why Dave Grohl is such a well-liked dude.

I started this one shortly after Taylor died, so finishing it today, on the anniversary of Kurt‘s death, seems like a nod from the universe. Hoping Dave is okay today. I‘m glad he has a lot of love around him.

CBee I didn‘t even realize how close the dates were, when Kurt died and when Taylor died. I can‘t even imagine how he‘s feeling 🙁 3mo

Listened on our drive to and from New Orleans. Really enjoyed it, Dave Grohl tells a great story and I enjoyed hearing about his amazing experiences in the music world and beyond. He reads it himself and it felt like a great night of catching up with an old friend. There are sad moments, his memories of Kurt Cobain are so bittersweet, and the recent death of Taylor Hawkins overshadows it all. RIP, Taylor. #BookspinBingo @TheAromaofBooks

Finished this and watched his new movie a couple weeks ago. I loved getting to know Grohl through his creative, funny and thoughtful writing. The movie I didn‘t like as much. Getting to know his band mates and past struggles through this book makes my heart break more hearing about the untimely death of his good friend and drummer Taylor Hawkins.

peaknit This was so good, so 💔 about Taylor. 3mo

1. This book is amazing and I‘m really sad for Dave.
2. Wtf? This shipped new from Target in November and I never cracked it open before a few days ago. Wtf is this torn page about!?! I am so annoyed.

Editing as now I‘m annoyed AND insulted. A 2nd book ordered in Feb had a torn cover, so I emailed about both.

The pictured book they can‘t do anything about. The other one? They refunded me sixty. Four. Cents.

No more books from Target for me.

I have no words. I saw this late last night and have been thinking about Dave Grohl all day—he went from being a drummer who lost his frontman to a frontman who lost his drummer. And best friend. Taylor Hawkins was the only drummer who could keep you from being disappointed that Dave wasn‘t the drummer in the band. Goodnight, Taylor. I hope you can rest now that the demons are gone.

This memoir is an endearing and touching account of the rock star /drummer, Dave Grohl who played for Scream, Nirvana, and founded FuFighters. He is a son of a single mother school teacher who supported her son‘s choice to play drums in place of going to college. What a bold choice in the 90‘s! Yes, he is incredibly fortunate and he shares his gratitude and awe at every turn. His is an amazing story only believable from the storyteller himself.

And I‘ve always liked David Grohl,but never as I much as I do now, after reading this book.I actually did the audio version,in which he was the narrator.What a well spoken,loving human being!He deserves all of the blessings that he has received in life so far, and many more in the future. This book leaves me longing for more. Maybe a Foo Fighter concert is in my future.

Rock stars, they‘re just like us! Seriously, Dave Grohl seems like such a solid guy. I feel like he‘d be a great neighbor: fun to talk with, he‘d throw great parties, has amazing & famous friends, and he‘d always pickup the tab. The experiences, friendships, heartaches and triumphs make this such a compelling listen/read. It‘s music history and a biography, and I absolutely loved it.

I ordered this book from Head House Books in Philly along with a ticket to an online conversation between Grohl and Terry Gross as a fundraiser for FreshAir. I read the book then listened to it on my Libby app. It is so good! He‘s a good writer with a conversational style that makes the reader/listener feel as though he‘s talking to you directly. His self-deprecating humor is laugh aloud funny but shelters a sensitive spirit that shines through.

I was sucked in from page one. He reads the audiobook himself and tells his stories with such passion. You‘ll appreciate it more if you are a musician (I‘m not), or a huge fan of his, but it‘s fun regardless. His collection of memories are a strange and wonderful mix. There are rockstar concert mishaps and there are first crushes in a classic suburban neighborhood. It‘s a bit flowery at times, but it‘s easy to get lost in his childlike enthusiasm.

My Goodreads app has been glitchy. I uninstalled & reinstalled this morning. But in the meantime, I decided to commit to using StoryGraph, as well.

I‘ve been holding out because I don‘t like that you can‘t customize your shelves. I do, however, like that it‘s not owned by an evil corporation. It‘s marketed as “the black-owned, ethical alternative” to GR. And it‘s got some neat features.

Be my pal?

shanaqui I quit Goodreads quite a while ago because they had a bug that messed up my shelves, and told me that I could fix it manually by re-saving all 4000+ book records. Manually. That was 2-3 years ago. 👀 Bug's still not fixed. Sucks, because I used to advocate for GR a lot, and help out in their user group.

I liked Grohl‘s memoir. It was a fun read, especially as a Gen X‘er. There are many aspects of his life that are omitted. The book really is focused upon his life in music and, mostly, his positive experiences and influences in music. For that reason, there are parts of the book that feel “an inch deep”.

I would have never listened to this if so many people on Litsy hadn‘t said how excellent it is. And I agree! This has got to be one of the best audiobooks I‘ve ever listened to. You can really hear the emotions in Grohl‘s voice as he talks. I loved too that he grew up not too far from where I live.

Loved hearing how Dave Grohl grew up and became the musician he is today. He‘s humble, realizes how fortunate he is and has some fun stories to tell along the way. I especially enjoyed the stories from the 90‘s music scene. 🎶

Wow, this audiobook is so good, and I would have never listened to it if it weren‘t for Litsy. #BlameItOnLitsy

I‘m not a huge fan but still wanted to hear his stories. Nicely done. Make sure to stick around after he says goodbye. He has one more story to tell - like an encore.
