About this audiobook

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.

    He is a great writer. He is clear, positive, and authentic in his share. He is not smear anyone and keeps his focus always on the prize - his life and the people and music in it.

    So many things I loved about this book. Apart from the great stories, I love how humble Dave Grohl is, how appreciative he is for all who have come before him. But most of all how much he treasures and loves his family. He is an amazing hands on dad!

    Wonderfully written, and recorded. The sound of Dave’s voice made the stories come alive. Highly recommend, even if you are only slightly aware of his musical catalog.
    Only issue I had is the three spots where it cut out and I missed several minutes of the story. Would do the same after trying to rewind.
