Read by Dave Grohl. Features excerpts from five never before heard demos performed by Dave Grohl and an original story exclusive to The Storyteller audiobook.

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.

I listened to this book because I wanted to hear the stories in his own voice. I highly recommend doing that if you can ... it's a treat to hear Grohl's energy and emotion throughout.

Regardless of how you read this book, you simply must read it if you know anything about Nirvana, Foo Fighters, or Dave Grohl. He's led such an amazing life so far and has such an interesting outlook on life, it's worth your time hearing his stories. ( )

Excellent job of storytelling, and I teared up more than a few times, especially as Dave talked about the power of meeting your influences and idols. Love this one, and it's a great audiobook as the author read it himself. ( )

I was in my 20s and a fan of MTV in the early 90s. So, of course, I knew of Nirvana. I was, however, agnostic about their music as I was about the Foo Fighters'. I might be able to name a song or two from both groups but I had never bought any or even purposely sought them out. However, every time I came across a story about Dave Grohl, he just seemed like a cool guy. So, when I had an extra Audible credit that I needed to use before it expired, I bought the audiobook for The Storyteller (read by Grohl, himself).

After listening, my impression is confirmed. Dave just seems like a totally awesome, down-to-earth guy who had a couple lucky breaks but who mostly worked his you-know-what off to get where he is. I loved the stories of his life on the road, particularly in the early days (pre-Nirvana) when he was slogging around in a van, sleeping on people's floors and living on a per diem of $7.50 a day. The later stories, when he's finally hit it big and is hobnobbing with celebrities could get tiresome, especially when he expresses surprise that he's actually given good seats and backstage passes to a charity concert featuring some of his idols. But you really believe that he is a humble guy who is truly star struck and above all, grateful to meet his heroes and for all that he has. You finish the book thinking that Dave is not only a lot of fun, but more importantly, a good human being, a great friend and an awesome dad and family man. I'd love to hang with him. Might have to go out now and buy some Foo Fighters songs. ( )

I love biographies of musicians and this one was an exception in that it wasn't centered on drug abuse. As a straight edge musician I'm always looking for a connection with these people, many who I've looked up to since I was a kid.

I can't say I'm a huge fan of the Foo Fighters or Nirvana, but it was definitely interesting to hear about their journey and how it all went down. He doesn't spend too much time on the details of Kurt's downward spiral, but enough to give you an idea of what happened.

After the initial history of learning to play and being in bands, the rest of the book centers on either Dave meeting famous people and sometimes performing with them, his experiences as a father and son, and then the occasional tour story. He seems extremely grateful for all the blessings he's received and really seems to care about people.

This was written before the death of Taylor Hawkins, so it's especially painful to hear Dave talk about him and their relationship with such compassion. ( )

I was delightfully surprised by the approachability and openness of Mr. Grohl's memoir. I enjoyed reading about his childhood, his musical exploits, and the joy he finds in his family.
