I can't remember how I came across this book but I read the sample and it seemed fairly interesting. I like a good Foo tune and the like and I really admire Dave Grohl's hair (Silkience and Pantene adverts aren't a patch on a Foo video) so I downloaded the rest and set to reading it.
The wealth of detail can be confusing for the uninitiated but it's worth persevering. Whether the reader gets to know Dave Grohl or not only the man himself could say but we feel like we do. The net result is that I no longer feel obliged to buy any Nirvana cds, although I'm sure I bought a tape of theirs years ago and promptly deliberately lost it to a friend because it didn't really inspire me, whereas when I first heard Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace through noise cancelling headphones on a Virgin Upper Class flight to LA it just blew me away.
It was nice to be able to put everything into context.
