The Storyteller: Tales of Life and MusicThe Storyteller: Tales of Life and Music by Dave Grohl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I loved listening to Dave Grohl tell his tales! I'm not even particularly a fan of any of the bands he's been in, but he loves The Beatles... and that's pretty much where my love of music began, too. And he loves his family. And he's not afraid to stand up for what he believes in. And I admire all that. No doubt, I will listen to this again sometime.

Next up: The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois, by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers. That's a 29-hour listen, so likely not a "finish" until 2022!




I've heard a lot of recommendations for this book, but I'm also not really a fan of his bands, so I didn't think I'd enjoy it. Now I'm rethinking it.

I've got Love Songs (hard copy) on my night stand for when I finish The Madness of Crowds!


I have a fan girl crush on Dave Grohl (and have since his Nirvana days . . . ). I loved listening to his book, and I'm glad you liked it, too. XO


OK you convinced me- I'm #43 on hold for 3 copies of audiobook! The Beatles are my goto favs followed by Simon and Garfunkel. have a great weekend.

Grohl's stories were great! I loved listening to this book/memoir and learning how positive and balanced he is! I have always loved Nirvana, but didn't know much about Grohl. I am SO happy he shared his life story.,
