Publisher’s Summary

So, I’ve written a book.

Having entertained the idea for years, and even offered a few questionable opportunities (“It’s a piece of cake! Just do four hours of interviews, find someone else to write it, put your face on the cover, and voila!”), I have decided to tell these stories just as I have always done, in my own voice. The joy that I have felt from chronicling these tales is not unlike listening back to a song that I’ve recorded and can’t wait to share with the world, or reading a primitive journal entry from a stained notebook, or even hearing my voice bounce between the Kiss posters on my wall as a child.

This certainly doesn’t mean that I’m quitting my day job, but it does give me a place to shed a little light on what it’s like to be a kid from Springfield, Virginia, walking through life while living out the crazy dreams I had as young musician. From hitting the road with Scream at 18 years old, to my time in Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, jamming with Iggy Pop or playing at the Academy Awards or dancing with AC/DC and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, drumming for Tom Petty or meeting Sir Paul McCartney at Royal Albert Hall, bedtime stories with Joan Jett or a chance meeting with Little Richard, to flying halfway around the world for one epic night with my daughters…the list goes on. I look forward to focusing the lens through which I see these memories a little sharper for you with much excitement.

    And what a damn storyteller he is!

    Wow. I have achieved very little over the last two days as I was mesmerised by Dave’s story. I just sat and listened as he recounted the most beautiful, often heartbreaking, most uplifting moments of his incredible life. Yet, it’s Dave’s humanity that connects the reader to his story, that invites us into these spaces and moments in time like we are right there with him, experiencing the awe and wonder just as he describes. I particularly loved the many Aussie references, and the way he spoke so lovingly and with such gratitude, of his hardworking, public school teacher of a mother. Righto, this school teacher better get back to her job and try to inspire the future rock legends of this world. Thanks Dave, you’re a wonderful human.

    A must listen book to all music fans!

    Listening to Dave speak his story was just mesmerising, any chance I got to listen to this book I would put my headphones in and I became hypnotised with his words.
