The Storyteller- Tales of Life and the Magic of Music by Dave Grohl is a PG memoir from the drummer of Nirvana. The band just celebrated their 30th anniversary and their debut album, Nevermind, just turned thirty. The surviving members of the band have written the memoir and it is a wonderful look into their lives. While the book contains some score-settling, it is not a sappy read.
The book opens with a chapter about the infamous heroin addiction of Dave Grohl. In “The Storyteller,” we learn that he never knew anyone who had taken drugs and did cocaine. Instead, he drank five pots of coffee a day. Unlike many other memoirs, “The Storyteller” doesn’t include an intervention. In fact, he’s suggested to drink decaf to help himself quit his habit.
The Storyteller- Tales of Life and the Magic of Music is an affable memoir by one of the world’s most influential rock stars. Although it might sound like a boring memoir, it contains plenty of insight into Grohl’s extraordinary life. The author’s personal story, about his childhood in Springfield, Va., will surely appeal to fans of his work. It’s a rousing read for fans of the music industry.
