Dave Grohl seems to have been born to be a rock star. Here he weaves together the many stories that tell the tale of how he became one. More importantly, he tells the story of a person who is willing to follow his dream to make a life doing what makes him happy. From dropping out of high school to tour with a punk band, to somehow always finding himself in the right place at the right time (imagine being an unknown drummer in an unknown band and being asked to sit in with Iggy Pop for a gig), to joining Nirvana, and then fronting the Foo Fighters. He seems to always be at the crossroads of some great musical event. Grohl's stories about his life and music are filled with humor and emotion. ~ Reviewed by Allen Boulet
