The Remastered Edition…Because There’s Always More to the Story
Dave Grohl’s The Storyteller created a sensation when it was initially published, becoming a global bestseller and thrilling fans and critics alike. Readers came to the book for Dave’s heartfelt voice, his love of family and music, and the energy that pours from every page.
Dave’s is an extraordinary life made of up ordinary moments, and he tells stories just like he writes songs—from his soul. Whether recounting his time as kid in Toughskins in the Virginia suburbs, as a skinny teenager drumming his heart out for punk band Scream, living through the explosion and implosion of Nirvana, or hustling all the way around the world to escort his daughters to the Father/Daughter dance (only to be ignored as soon as his girls found their friends) The Storyteller is just like its author, as real as it gets.
To show his appreciation for his fans, and to celebrate his love of writing, this deluxe paperback edition offers a wide variety of extra content, including: An essay on how Dave approaches creativity (Here’s a hint: you don’t have to think outside of the box. Just ignore it.) A series of prompts to jump start your creativity The story of when Dave first met Paul McCartney (previously an audiobook exclusive) A collection of Dave’s curated playlists, giving a glimpse into some of the music he loves The “Song Stories” of four Foo Fighters favorites
The Storyteller has challenged what a music memoir can be. With this paperback, the legacy continues.
