9780306819568: This Is a Call: The Life and Times of Dave Grohl

This Is a Call, the first in-depth, definitive biography of Dave Grohl, tells the epic story of a singular career that includes Nirvana, Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, and Them Crooked Vultures. Based on ten years of original, exclusive interviews with the man himself and conversations with a legion of musical associates like Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme, DC punk legend Ian MacKaye, and Nevermind producer Butch Vig, this is Grohl's story. He speaks candidly and honestly about Kurt Cobain, the arguments that almost tore Nirvana apart, the feuds that threatened to derail the Foo Fighters's global success, and the dark days that almost caused him to quit music for good.

Dave Grohl has emerged as one of the most recognizable and respected musicians in the world. He is the last true hero to emerge from the American underground. This Is a Call vividly recounts this incredible rock 'n' roll journey.

Review:

Q, January 2012

"Brannigan draws on his own interviews with Grohl, among others, to plot a compelling journey that begins in Washington's punk clubs with Grohl's group Scream living with female mud-wrestlers, before exploring the chaos that was Nirvana, and ending with Foo Fighters headlining stadia. A big-hearted, fascinating read."

Litreactor.com 12/13/11

"Impeccably-researched, thoroughly entertaining, and packed with rich new insights, This is a Call will enjoy a place among the absolute best music biographies of the past twenty years"
