I listened to this book because I wanted to hear the stories in his own voice. I highly recommend doing that if you can ... it's a treat to hear Grohl's energy and emotion throughout.

Regardless of how you read this book, you simply must read it if you know anything about Nirvana, Foo Fighters, or Dave Grohl. He's led such an amazing life so far and has such an interesting outlook on life, it's worth your time hearing his stories.

Excellent job of storytelling, and I teared up more than a few times, especially as Dave talked about the power of meeting your influences and idols. Love this one, and it's a great audiobook as the author read it himself.

I was in my 20s and a fan of MTV in the early 90s. So, of course, I knew of Nirvana. I was, however, agnostic about their music as I was about the Foo Fighters'. I might be able to name a song or two from both groups but I had never bought any or even purposely sought them out. However, every time I came across a story about Dave Grohl, he just seemed like a cool guy. So, when I had an extra Audible credit that I needed to use before it expired, I bought the audiobook for The Storyteller (read by Grohl, himself).

After listening, my impression is confirmed. Dave just seems like a totally awesome, down-to-earth guy who had a couple lucky breaks but who mostly worked his you-know-what off to get where he is. I loved the stories of his life on the road, particularly in the early days (pre-Nirvana) when he was slogging around in a van, sleeping on people's floors and living on a per diem of $7.50 a day. The later stories, when he's finally hit it big and is hobnobbing with celebrities could get tiresome, especially when he expresses surprise that he's actually given good seats and backstage passes to a charity concert featuring some of his idols. But you really believe that he is a humble guy who is truly star struck and above all, grateful to meet his heroes and for all that he has. You finish the book thinking that Dave is not only a lot of fun, but more importantly, a good human being, a great friend and an awesome dad and family man. I'd love to hang with him. Might have to go out now and buy some Foo Fighters songs.
