This is a Call: The Life & Times of Dave Grohl – Paul Brannigan

Posted on December 13th, 2011 by in Biography

This is a Call: The Life & Times of Dave Grohl by Paul Brannigan is an unparalleled, intimate and extraordinary account of the life and times of musician Dave Grohl, from a bandmates suicide to drug abuse, from Washington DC to California.

In 1990, little-known punk-metal upstarts Nirvana added a new drummer to the band. They were soon to become a global phenomenon – but as we all know, things went wrong. David Grohl’s friend Kurt, frontman of Nirvana, took his own life, plunging the band and their future into chaos. His friends grief was mirrored by worldwide sorrow to an unprecedented degree. Defying expectations, a knack that was soon to become his trademark, Grohl refused to see it as the end. In 1995 his new band, the Foo Fighters, rose to join the pantheon of rock deities. The wonder years were by no means calm. The spotlit existence imposed by his celebrity status, the bellowed vilification by his critics and his high-speed lifestyle proved a dangerous cocktail. Grohl has been through some of the darkest lows and most dazzling highs that life can offer. Daves feelings about these events have never fully been revealed to the public.

Never before has an author had such intimate access to this extraordinary man. Paul Brannigan, his friend and confidant, now brings to light this unique portrait of Dave Grohl: the man who changed music forever.
