Dave Grohl is no ordinary musician. Having powered Nirvana to legendary status from behind his drum kit, adding the necessary drive to Kurt Cobain's genre-defining grunge anthems, he then switched instruments to become guitarist, singer, songwriter and frontman of the Foo Fighters. This unique and critically acclaimed quartet has enjoyed more than a decade of success and shows no sign of stalling. 

This book traces Grohl's history from schoolboy to superstar, examining his musical roots and motivation to remain at the top of his tree. It also reveals how the Nirvana experience taught him to keep the press at bay, offering an insight into the private man behind the "all-American nice guy" image.
