When will Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl publish his new book?
Dave Grohl, who is the front-man for the band Foo Fighters, is set to release a new book “The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music”, via Dey Street Books, an imprint of the William Morrow Group at HarperCollins, on October 5, 2021. The autobiographical book will be published in the UK by Simon & Schuster Ltd on the same date.
After the disbanding of the Grunge pioneers, Nirvana, where, he was the drummer, Dave Grohl founded his own band Foo Fighters where he is the vocalist, guitarist, and the main songwriter. He has described his upcoming book as “a collection of memories of a life lived loud”.
What is “The Storyteller” about?
The book will primarily chronicle the experiences and moments that have shaped the musical all-rounder into the person he is today. In his words, the book will contain detailed stories and anecdotes from throughout Dave Grohl’s career and life, including childhood memories, his time as the famed drummer of the iconic 90’s Grunge band [Nirvana], his time with his current band Foo Fighters, and other stories and experiences with David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, and Paul McCartney.
He also shared excerpts from the book on his Instagram. “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!” exclaimed the rock icon in the caption.
Dave Grohl also posted an audio clip of him narrating this excerpt on the Foo Fighters YouTube channel.
“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,” he said in the statement.
How did Dave Grohl’s upcoming book come into being?
The rockstar also added that “The Storyteller” was influenced by the Instagram account that he created, @DavesTrueStories, during the quarantine where he reminisced and wrote about his life experiences and other stories from the road and the limelight.
“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,” he said.
