   schema:description "Fully updated edition of the bestselling and first biography on one of modern rock s most influential figures. The Foo Fighters emerged from the morass of suicide and potent musical legacy that was Nirvana to establish themselves against all odds as one of the most popular rock bands in the world. Deflecting early critical disdain, Dave Grohl has single-handedly reinvented himself and cemented his place in the rock pantheon. This is his story, from his pre Nirvana days in hardcore band Scream to his current festival conquering status as a Grammy winning, platinum selling grunge legend reborn. Across the entire body of Foo Fighters albums, the whole sordid yet legendary Nirvana tale, the pre-history in the nascent Seattle scene and right up to date via Grohl s flirtations with bands such as Queens of the Stone Age and his mega-band side-project Them Crooked Vultures, this is an utterly comprehensive and insightful chronicle of Dave Grohl s remarkable life. Drawing on new interviews with key figures in the Grohl story, this definitive biography of one of modern rock s most influential figures is now updated to include the world conquering double album In Your Honour, the multi platinum opus Echoes, Silence, Patience and Grace and their latest 2011 album which marks a return to high voltage rock and sees Grohl reunited with Nirvana producer Butch Vig."@en ;
