From "Best of You" to best-seller: Dave Grohl's 'The Storyteller' book tops 'NY Times' lists

Dave Grohl can now add "New York Times best-selling author" to his ever-impressive list of career accomplishments.

The Foo Fighters frontman's debut book, The Storyteller, sits at number one on the Times' Hardcover Nonfiction and Combined Print & E-Book Nonfiction rankings.

The Storyteller faced some stiff competition, having been released the same day as former Donald Trump White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham's tell-all book, I'll Take Your Questions Now, as well as actor Stanley Tucci's Taste memoir. Still, Grohl's collection of rock n' roll tales, which range from his childhood to joining Nirvana and jamming with everyone from Paul McCartney to Iggy Pop, grabbed the top spot.

In a tweet reacting to the news, Grohl writes that he's "honored" by the book's success.

"Never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that I would someday be a number-one bestselling author," Grohl says. "But it's those same wildest dreams that I've followed since the day I picked up a guitar."

Grohl recently wrapped a tour in support of The Storyteller, which featured him playing drums alongside the recording of Nirvana's "Smells Like Teen Spirit."
