About this item


Book Synopsis

So, I've written a book.

Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities (It's a piece of cake! Just do 4 hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!) I have decided to write these stories just as I have always done, in my own hand. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I've recorded and can't wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child.

This certainly doesn't mean that I'm quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it's like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician. From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters...the list goes on. I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.

Great book. Dave is a great storyteller. Held my attention all the way through. Being a teen in the mid eighties, Nirvana was everything I was missing in music. The Foo Fighters are amazing in everything they do. This book was great start to finish. If you loved the punk and grunge scene, this is a must read.

This is a can’t put down kind of memoir. The amount of humility that Dave pulses through the book is insane given how incredible he is. The writing is top notch, the pauses that you’ll absolutely take to listen to not only his catalogue of music but everyone he mentions along the way, only add to the enjoyment. It’s a must read.
