Publisher: Backbeat Books
Artists: Foo Fighters, David Grohl
From the ashes of Nirvana, Dave Grohl rose as a one-man band with a self-titled album: Foo Fighters. Now, twenty-five years on and with a rock-solid outfit – including Nate Mendel (bass), Taylor Hawkins (drums), Chris Shiflett (guitar), Pat Smear (rhythm guitar), and latest addition Rami Jaffee (keyboards) – the Foo Fighters are reveling in the success of their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold.
Paying homage to the band's enduring longevity, this book is a comprehensive look at a career that boasts worldwide sales of more than thirty million albums, ten Grammies, and hit stadium-rock anthems such as “Learn to Fly,” “Best of You,” and “Everlong.” Illustrated throughout and including an album-by-album discography, this handsome biography from acclaimed rock writer Stevie Chick is a fitting tribute to a band born out of “the nicest guy in rock's” single-minded vision and now one of the planet's biggest rock groups. ©2019, 224 pages
