I couldn‘t put this memoir of a driven and supported young man who becomes the first Black man with a PhD is tuba performance. It‘s a moving story of music, passion, discipline, vulnerability, beating the odds. A great read.

I listened to the audiobook, and I commend Dave Grohl, he‘s a talented narrator.

I came for Nirvana. I‘m really not a Foo Fighters fan. I stayed for Dave‘s stories of his family and friends. Especially the close relationship he has with his daughters. (Brought tears to my eyes more than once.)

Imagine Joan Jett reading your bedtime stories? Incredible.

This is an ode to loving music and to living with joy. Definitely 5 ⭐️

Prairiegirl_reading I was never a huge Nirvana fan, I like the foo fighters more but it almost doesn‘t matter. He‘s so full of joy and really is a great storyteller. I loved this one too. 3d
AmyG Yes to it all. I am more of a Nirvana fan…I only know a handful of FF songs. But yes, he is so full of joy and so deeply grateful and humble. 3d

After reading this, you‘ll love Dave Grohl, if you didn‘t already. He does as the title promises — tells his stories. He‘s not dishing dirt & doesn‘t dwell on Kurt Cobain. He talks about what he loves: music, his family, opportunities he‘s had. I love how enthusiastic he is when he meets idols like Paul McCartney. My favorite story is the lengths he went to get to the daddy/daughter dance at his daughters‘ school. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ #NYWD

Listening to this and literally gasped out loud when Dave Grohl said he used his first Nirvana money to buy a cottage in Corolla, N.C. I live in North Carolina so this is a fun fact. He even pronounced it correctly. (Kuh-RAW-luh)

Having been to see his band play a number of times, I am not surprised that I found this book as entertaining and as enjoyable as his live performances. Dave Grohl is a very funny man whose exuberance and boundless energy shines through in his writing. Plus I always admire people who love and respect their mothers as much as he does and aren‘t afraid to tell everyone. Highly recommend this book but I am a bit biased as I‘ve always loved Dave 😊
