I'm generally not a fan of audio books, yet I could not stop listening to Dave Grohl tell his stories. He was so authentic, real, heartfelt, funny and inspiring during the hours I listened that I admire him even more. What a wonderful human being!!! I would recommend this book to anyone.
Fantastic - hearing Dave tell his story was even better than reading it. Funny, inspiring, fascinating, and engaging. If you're a Nirvana and/or FF fan, you will love this book. This made me admire him even more than before. What a down-to-earth, humble, grateful guy!
As Dave would say, this book is F-ing AWESOME !! I laughed out loud, sobbed at points, and teared up often. Listened to the whole thing in one sitting.
And still want more !!
Thanks, Dave !
What a great listen! Dave did an excellent job narrating and balancing humor with heart. Would recommend this book to anyone!
Dave is funny as hell, so incredibly passionate about music and his family, and walks through life with an enormous amount of gratitude. I thoroughly enjoyed every minute.
Dave Grohl reads the book with all of the emotions that come with every event, every anecdote, every moment. I absolutely loved every minute of it.
This is one of the most profound life stories I have listened to in my years of audio books. My new found respect for David is immeasurable. A MUST READ/LISTEN TO!!
I can’t cease to to be amazed by Dave Grohl, as a drummer, guitarist, singer, song writer, producer, director, all round good guy, and now author! Great book read with tremendous enthusiasm!
David Grohl is a Great storyteller.
Really enjoyed listening to stories about some of the
Greatest musicians that have ever lived like you had a front row seat to their lives
I’ve loved nirvana / and the foos since their inception… I particularly loved Dave and his attitude towards life specially his genuine way of expensing himself .
This book is just a confirmation of
What I’ve always thought of the guy … with an in-depth view on his believes and philosophy on life !!! Great read !!!
And long live rock n roll !!!!!
LOVED IT! Loved that Dave narrated! Great to follow him through his life journey. If u loved Nirvana or the Foo’s a DEFINITE book u must read! (Listen to. It’s way better listening to Dave tell it.) highly recommend.
This book is so awesome! If you love the Foo Fighters, or just want something interesting to listen to, get this, you won’t regret it! I cannot stress enough how great this book is. Dave Grohl narrates and you can feel his energy and how genuine and real he is. If you ever wondered if he’s as fun and cool as he seems in his music videos and interviews, this helps solidify that image. It really made me wish even more that one day I could run into him and just give him a high five and thank him for the soundtrack of my youth.
Amazing story, equally amazing storyteller!
Amazing book, I am not a Foo Fighter fan by any means. But the way the stories are told by Dave makes this book a gem. It’s engaging, fun, touching and also provides an inside look at other artists. Things you didn’t know.
The amount of “what were the odds” kind of stories makes this book one of my new favourites. I have recommended it to anyone who likes music.
One of the best audiobooks I have ever listened to. Dave Grohl is funny, honest, vulnerable and such an outstanding “Storyteller”. I feel sad that I have finished the book….I could have listened to him for 100 more hours. I laughed out loud. I cried at parts and it was such an engaging adventure to listen to. Thanks for sharing. Dave!
Loved every minute of it! Thank you Dave! I'm a huge fan and now a fan of your family :-)
Dave Grohl story is an amazing one his passion for life, music, everything is inspiring. in his book he tells the most memorable things that has happened to him. I LOVED it, This is a must have book for sure! Thank you Dave.
Seriously Amazing!! Loved that Dave narrated it. Can’t s top sharing stories from it to my closest friends. They might be Sick of hearing about it, but it’s THAT amazing ❤️❤️❤️
I was equal parts entertained and moved. I listened to Dave tell me in detail the emotions he experienced when Kurt died and, 14 years later, when his best friend died. Then 2 days later Taylor Hawkins died. I felt like I knew what Dave was going through, because I had just heard him tell me. But there were also plenty of light-hearted moments. Loved it!
I love Dave Grohl the musician and I couldn't get enough of Dave Grohl the storyteller. Once I started listening to this book, I couldn't stop. I already have sooooo much respect and admiration for The Foo Fighters as a band but with this book, I have gained soooooo much more for Dave as a human being and EVEN MORE STILL since the untimely loss of Taylor Hawkins. What a treat this work of art is from the one and only Dave Grohl.
Thank you Dave Grohl for sharing stories from your life and telling those stories as if you were right there with me instead of reading a book into a microphone. I felt like I was listening to an old friend.
I have recommended this book to everyone of my friends and have been thanked by the ones who have listened to it.
Simply the greatest narrated book ever.
DAVE GROHL is an amazing story teller, songwriter, artist, and performer
Been a fan since NIRVANA. I’m an amateur drummer and I too play drums with my teeth.
The story about the “kitten “ with his mom at his studio was one of many great stories. Highly recommended.
Definitely recommend. This was a fun read.
One of the best musicians in the world.
Ditto the positive reviews below. He is so funny and his story is very interesting, whether you are into him because of Foo Fighters, Nirvana or are just a music fan. Rather than tell every little intricate detail about his life up to this point, he seems to choose some of the most poignant stories and goes mostly in chronological order. I am looking forward to reading his Mom’s book also. He was lucky to have her and her support for his ambitions.
Great stories told by an amazing person. Dave Grohl is funny, humble, and knows how to tell a good story!
I loved the stories (listening to it for the 3rd time), some made me laugh, others made me think and some made me cry. I loved how Dave Grohl read the stories.... Felt like listening to an old friend.
Amazing stories. It’s like a 12 hour podcast from the GOAT himself!
I absolutely loved hearing about Dave's life in his own voice!
Plodding. Childish not rocker oriented. Feels written for his children. Could not swallow the political slights against we who are decent folks and not rabid liberals as he prefers.
Dave is a great storyteller, he is authentic and loving and hopeful. I get the feeling he’s never forgotten where he came from and his stories, and his voice, are warm and hopeful.
LOVED IT! I thought I loved Dave Grohl before this audiobook and now I love him even more! It was so fun to hear him read his own book and he is just such a down to earth, kind, funny, humble, family guy. I highly recommend!
Loved this book! Dave Grohl is so genuine and authentic telling his stories. It’s an emotional, humorous, and entertaining read! You wish you were best friend’s with Dave by the time it’s over.
Great way to spend some time!!
I'd like to thank Dave Grohl for making me look like a crazy person at work!
My fellow employees were treated to a headed phoned me with sudden bursts of laughter, random tears running down my cheeks and prolonged dreamy gazes of recalled nostalgia. Such a great listen & and Dave's enthusiasm, humor & sentiment made it all the more enjoyable!
Amazing listening to these wonderful stories…
Loved this book! I really enjoying listening to Dave Grohl read his biography. Hearing him speak about his family, especially his love for his mother, wife and 3 girls was so heartwarming. My heart goes out to Dave upon hearing the news of his dear friend, Taylor Hawkins, passing (happened while I was listening to the book). I was looking forward to seeing the Foo Fighters for the first time at an ACL Live taping next week in Austin, TX.
What a great book! Just as I finished it, Taylor Hawkins passed away and I’m heartbroken for Taylor’s family, Dave and the Foo Fighters. As Dave said, he never had the chance to tell Kurt how much he meant to him, and I am thankful that he had the opportunity to share that with Taylor in this book before his untimely death. A tremendous book I would highly recommend, I am inspired and I admire Dave so much more after listening to this amazing book.
This book was amazing and the fact that it’s read by Dave himself literally makes the whole book. At times I felt like I was sitting across from him, listening to him tell me stories, as if we were old friends. Hands down one of the best memoirs I’ve ever heard.
Loved this. It was so awesome to hear Dave tell his own stories. He’s a great storyteller with his audio and written voice!
Knew of Dave Grohl and his bands, decided I would have a listen. OMG loved love love is really all I can say! I am now a Dave Grohl super freak and feel like I need to know even more about his life. At this point he would be the only celebrity (Yes Dave you are a celebrity) they I would seek to meet! Must listen
