Dave Grohl has announced his first book. The new memoir, The Storyteller, is due out October 5 via Dey Street Books. It was born out of the past year spent in lockdown, as Dave reflected on his passion for music while away from his full-time gig as a touring artist. Following his May 2020 essay about how much he misses live music, and his return to social media with a new Instagram account, @davestruestrories, it felt natural to go the next step and write a book.
According to the synopsis, The Storyteller documents Dave's relationship with music, his family life, childhood, experiences with Nirvana, Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, and others, the time he played at the White House, an evening that he went swing-dancing with AC/DC., and more.
