The book, published by Dey Street Books, is described as a celebration of music and a collection of life stories from the legendary rocker. Specifically, The Storyteller details childhood mishaps and adolescent adventures as well as stories about his time in Nirvana and Foo Fighters.
“There is a common thread that runs throughout everything that I do: storytelling,” Grohl said. “Whether in song, documentary film or on the page, I have always felt compelled to share moments from my life. This inclination is a huge part of what excites me creatively but also as a human being.” Giving fans a taste of what’s in store from his literary venture, Grohl posted an 11-minute-plus introduction to the book Tuesday on YouTube.

While The Storyteller is Grohl’s first published book, it is not the music icon’s first venture in storytelling. In 2013, Grohl made his debut as a feature director and producer with the documentary Sound City, which focused on the history of the studio of the same name where Nirvana recorded their diamond-certified album “Nevermind.”
