Foo Fighters

The Band That Dave Made
by Stevie Chick

From the ashes of Nirvana, Dave Grohl rose as a one-man band with a self-titled album: Foo Fighters. Now, 25 years on and with a rock solid outfit that includes Nate Mendel (bass), Taylor Hawkins (drums), Chris Shiflett (guitar) Pat Smear (rhythm guitar) and latest addition, Rami Jaffee (keyboards) – Foo Fighters are reveling in the success of their ninth studio album, Concrete and Gold.

Paying homage to the band’s enduring longevity, Foo Fighters: The Band That Dave Made is a comprehensive look at a career that boasts worldwide sales of more than 30 million albums, ten Grammies and hit stadium rock anthems such as "Learn to Fly", "Best of You" and "Everlong." Illustrated with over 200 images, 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.

Author Stevie Chick has been writing about music for over a decade, contributing to titles like MOJO, the Guardian, NME, The Times, The Quietus, Kerrang!, Melody Maker, Sleaze Nation and Plan B. He is also the author of Psychic Confusion: The Sonic Youth Story (Omnibus), Ninja Tune: 20 Years Of Beats And Pieces (Black Dog) and Spray Paint the Wall: The Story of Black Flag (Omnibus).
