Dave Grohl is a 16-time Grammy-winning musician and 2-time Emmy-winning director.

Dave Grohl has been one of the most beloved and respected figures on the international music since his recorded debut with Nirvana on 1991's generation-defining Nevermind. Grohl took center stage with Foo Fighters' 1995 self-titled debut, the first album in massive 12-Grammy-winning catalogue that now includes The Colour & The Shape (1997), There Is Nothing Left To Lose (1999), One By One (2002), In Your Honor (2005), Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace (2007), Wasting Light (2011), Sonic Highways (2014), Concrete and Gold (2017) and, most recently, Medicine at Midnight (2021).

Grohl has a well-earned reputation as a prolific collaborator: His various endeavors have included "Cut Me Some Slack,” written and recorded with Paul McCartney and Grohl's Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear; Them Crooked Vultures, formed with Led Zeppelin's John Paul Jones and Queens of the Stone Age's Joshua Homme, late legends David Bowie and Lemmy Kilmister of Motorhead, as well as Mick Jagger, Neil Young, Elton John, Nine Inch Nails, Roger Taylor and Brian May of Queen, to name a few.

In 2013, Grohl made his debut as a feature director/producer with the acclaimed documentary Sound City. Named for the Van Nuys CA studio where Nirvana recorded Nevermind in 1991, which would sell more than 30 million copies and transform the modern musical landscape. Premiering to unanimous raves at Sundance and achieving a 100% Rotten Tomatoes rating, Sound City focused both on the history of the legendary studio and on the ongoing fight to preserve the human element of music. Hailed by Peter Travers of Rolling Stone as an "exhilarating documentary about what makes life worth living,” by The New York Times as "candy to several generations' worth of rock fans" and NPR as "a celebration of just how unbelievably awesome it is to make rock music for a living," Sound City has since been certified as a Gold Longform Video by the RIAA, while the Sound City—Real To Reel companion album took the 2013 Grammys for Best Compilation Soundtrack for Visual Media and Best Rock Song (“Cut Me Some Slack”).

Grohl also directed the eight-part HBO docuseries Foo Fighters: Sonic Highways, which premiered in October 2014 and went on to win two of the four Emmys for which it was nominated (outstanding sound mixing for nonfiction programming and outstanding sound editing for nonfiction programming). Described by Grohl as a love letter to the history of American music, Sonic Highways was comprised of eight one-hour episodes, each chronicling the creation of one song on Foo Fighters’ Sonic Highways album, each written and recorded in a different American musical landmark -- Austin, Chicago, Los Angeles, Nashville, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, and Washington, D.C.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dave Grohl, la rockstar di tutti.
Reviewed in Italy on 12 October 2021
Da fan dei Foo Fighters e di Dave Grohl (sia come persona che come musicista), ho atteso questo libro sin dal suo annuncio di aprile ed ora finalmente eccolo qui. Che dire, non una semplice autobiografia scritta da altri ma un racconto di vita vissuta, aneddoti musicali (e non) e curiosità semplici ma mai banali. Scorrevole il testo, molto diretto in pieno stile Grohl, bella l’impaginazione, i caratteri (spesso un po’ “particolari” per sottolineare qualche concetto importante) e le foto d’autore. Tomo voluminoso, di ben 400 pagine. Pollice verso invece per l’edizione. La Rizzoli ha la pessima abitudine di fare le sovracopertine che si rovinano facilmente mentre la stessa versione d’oltremanica è decisamente più bella. A saperlo avrei risparmiato acquistando la versione Kindle, risparmiando anche spazio nella libreria, oltretutto!
Servizio Amazon impeccabile come al solito. Uscito oggi 12 ottobre ed arrivato in mattinata.
5 stelle per il libro e per il servizio di Amazon; 2 per l’edizione. Semplicemente orribile. Meritava di meglio.
