💡 UNDER THE LAMPLIGHT-
Mom, it’s not a phase: Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has penned a memoir, The Storyteller, in which he details his rise to musical success despite some of the biggest controversies in modern music history. Grohl followed his dream of being a musician at a young age and left his hometown in Virginia to tour with Scream before eventually landing the job that would propel him into the limelight: Playing for Nirvana. The infamous death of Kurt Cobain and the ensuing aftermath didn’t deter Grohl, who moved on to form rock band Foo Fighters. Grohl — who wrote the book himself, as opposed to opting for a ghost writer — is a person we’ve always admired, from his creativity to his dedication to fatherhood.
