The Storyteller - Dave Grohl (5)

Publisher: ‎  Dey Street Books (October 5, 2021 Hardcover: ‎  384 pages ISBN: ‎  9780063076099 AMAZON So, I've written a book. Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities ("It's a piece of cake! Just do 4 hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!") I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I've recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child.  This certainly doesn't mean that I'm quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it's like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young music

Q:  What genre do you refuse to read and why? A: I wouldn't say that I refuse any. I don't run out and buy Erotica, and other than 50 Shades of Grey, I haven't purposely read any. Just not for me, I guess. I like thrills in other ways... like murder mysteries and such. **This is a weekly book meme post. Compensation may be earned from the link within.
