'Grohl candidly shares his reverence for the enduring power of
music ... Reflecting on his fame, Grohl writes, "I have never taken
a single moment of it for granted." Paired with his sparkling wit,
this humility is what makes Grohl's soulful story a cut above
typical rock memoirs. There isn't a dull moment here.' * Publishers

'Kinetic ... Grohl writes with equal fervor about his path from "that guy from Nirvana" to the leader of the uberfamous Foo Fighters and his parenting experiences. An exciting read for fans and a remarkable perspective on the last 30 years of rock music.' * Booklist *
