The Foo Fighters emerged from the morass of suicide and potent musical legacy that was Nirvana to establish themselves - against all odds - as one of the most popular rock bands in the world. Deflecting early critical disdain, Dave Grohl has single-handedly reinvented himself and cemented his place in the rock pantheon. This is his story, from his pre-Nirvana days in hardcore band Scream to his current festival-conquering status as a Grammy-winning, platinum-selling grunge legend reborn. Across the seven Foo Fighters albums, the whole sordid yet legendary Nirvana tale, the pre-history in the nascent Seattle scene and right up to date via Grohl's flirtations with bands such as Queens of the Stone Age, this is an utterly comprehensive and insightful chronicle of Dave Grohl's remarkable life.Drawing on new interviews with key figures in the Grohl story, this definitive biography of one of modern rock's most influential figures is now updated to include the world conquering double album "In Your Honour", the mellow acoustic brilliance of their "Skin and Bones" film and album, and their recent multi-platinum opus "Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace".
