It’s hard to imagine anyone else narrating musician Dave Grohl’s memoir. Not only is his voice familiar to Foo Fighters fans, his high-energy personality comes through in both his writing and his narration. The most engaging stories come early on, starting with Grohl’s quitting school to join a punk band at age 16. His post-fame recollections are entertaining and funny, as long as listeners aren’t looking for scenes of debauchery. It turns out Grohl is a genuinely decent family man. Yet while he is introspective about his career, he reveals only glimpses of his family life (fair enough), and even less about his friendship with Kurt Cobain. Still, there’s no shortage of memorable vignettes here, and Grohl’s likability and verve come through in every word. A storyteller indeed.
