FOO FIGHTERS' Dave Grohl Announces His First Book, The Storyteller – Tales of Life and Music

Dave Grohl, the coolest motherfucker in rock, is working on a new book. The Foo Fighters frontman announced his new book, The Storyteller – Tales Of Life And Music, will be a collection of essays telling stories of his various experiences over the years from coming up in Washington, D.C. through Nirvana and beyond.

The book comes out on October 5th via Dey Street Books.

Grohl commented “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!”
