    • News

Dave Grohl’s been part of the two biggest bands of the 1990s and 2000s — drummer for Nirvana and the creator/lead singer for the Foo Fighters. He’s performed thousands of shows, from tiny punk clubs to massive stadiums. In a new memoir, “The Storyteller,” he shares tales from his 35 years in the music industry.
Grohl tells KCRW that his three and a half years with Nirvana taught him to take care of himself. “One of the things that I learned was to say no, and if you're in a situation where you're overwhelmed or being asked to do something you don't want to do, just for the sake of like self-preservation, you should be able to say, ‘No, I need to get away,’ which I've done many times.”
Also, critics review the latest movie releases: “The French Dispatch,” “Ron’s Gone Wrong,” “Luzzu,” and “Dune.”
