Dave Grohl Biography To Hit Bookstores

Foo Fighters

Based on 10 years of original, exclusive interviews with Foo Fighters frontman and former Nirvana drummer, Dave Grohl, Paul Brannigan has written a biography on one of the most talented men in music. The former Kerrang! Editor recounts Grohl’s one-of-a-kind, rock & roll journey from grunge drummer to iconic rock frontman in the new book entitled, “This Is a Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl.” “It’s funny, but if you go back to the time right before that first Foo Fighters album came out in 1995, a lot of people in the U.K. press were mocking Dave. They were calling him the “grunge Ringo.” So the expectations for Dave and the Foo Fighters weren’t that high,” Brannigan tells AOL’s Noisecreep. “But I still remember the first time I heard ‘This Is a Call’ on the radio and being blown away by it. People just weren’t ready for the Foo Fighters’ to be that great.”
