Dave Grohl

Overview

As the drummer for Nirvana and the lead singer of the Foo Fighters, Dave Grohl has led a momentous life. Yet achieving commercial success required the young drummer to make many sacrifices, often neglecting his education, friendships, and comfort. Today, Grohl is no longer a novice punk rocker sleeping in his band's van while eating cheap corn dogs from gas stations, but continues his music career while supporting his wife and three daughters. As a self-identified 'freak', Grohl remains shocked at his commercial success.

In The Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music, Dave Grohl recounts his experiences during his renowned musical career and what gives his life meaning today. Along the way, Grohl gives an intimate look at some of his band's most notorious performances, as well as darker moments like the death of Kurt Cobain and the pressures of fame.

Favorite Quote

"Maybe our performance was a rallying cry to a whole new generation of kids suffocating in conventionality, afraid to let their freak flag fly, finally liberated to celebrate the beautiful eccentricities of life."
