This book is an extremely entertaining memoir where Dave’s love of music shines and shines through. Dave strolls through his childhood and his days in the business, primarily with Scream, Nirvana, and the Foo Fighters. Although Dave never mentions it, he is simply a master in emotional intelligence. He spent years touring in a van with numerous other bandmates. While other rock stars spend their careers trying to build elaborate badass images, Grohl is like “my mom is my best friend, and my daughter taught me the names of all Disney princesses.

“Dave Grohl is most certainly a Storyteller, and each story he shares is a journey through music history. Captivating from start to finish.”

The Book Guide® Editor

Grohl seems like an extremely hard-working, humble, intelligent guy who has never fallen into the trap of rockstar kayfabe, he is not chasing the idea of a public persona that is created in other people’s minds, and you have to admire him for his zero-fucks-given attitude. He also refrains from ventilating gossip or attacking people who wronged him, and some parts of the text suggest how Grohl tends to overcome setbacks: E.g., his infamous phase of drinking and depression after Kurt’s passing is mostly turned into a kind of rebirth, an episode in which he decided to take a new leap – which certainly isn’t wrong, but you could probably frame the whole thing very differently. But Grohl didn’t – and his determination is probably key to his achievements. 


This memoir mostly remains upbeat, intending to inspire, and there’s nothing wrong with it, but it also means that aspects like the difficult dynamics in Nirvana remain enigmatic and key personal turning points like Grohl’s divorce are hardly mentioned.

Overall, The Storyteller is funny, honest and full of amazing personal stories from an incredibly talented, down to earth, wonderful man who has created music that is loved by millions around the world.
