About the Author

Paul Brannigan has a professional relationship with Dave Grohl stretching back almost 15 years: "I would consider the two of us to be friends," Grohl told Brannigan when the pair last spent time together in Los Angeles. Brannigan is the former Editor of Kerrang! - the world's biggest weekly music magazine - and his writing on punk rock, grunge and hard rock have also appeared in the world renowned Q and Mojo magazines.

Reviews

`Grohl and his groups dissected with gumption.' **** Mojo `Brannigan draws on his own interviews with Grohl, among others, to plot a compelling journey... ending with Foo Fighters headlining stadia. A big-hearted, fascinating read.' Q `A rich history of recent pop music as it moves from punk and hard-core to grunge to indie bands' New York Times `Impeccably-researched, thoroughly entertaining, and packed with rich new insights, This is a Call will enjoy a place among the absolute best music biographies of the past twenty years.' LitReactor.com `A fascinating read... doesn't skimp on entertaining anecdotes, juicy gossip or evidence of Grohl's immense songwriting talent.' Alternative Press `Brannigan not only offers a penetrating portrait of Grohl the man but also presents an indelible portrait of the American underground-rock scene.' Booklist `Brannigan salutes a musician who's surfaced, prosperous and sane, from the perils of an extended punk-rock adolescence that not all of his friends survived. Reverent and informative.' Kirkus Reviews `Dave Grohl's tale covers so many bases after 30 or so years in the business that it takes a biographer of consummate skill to get it all down on paper without missing anything out. Fortunately, ex-Kerrang! editor Paul Brannigan has what it takes...What lingers most is the expert way in which so many disparate slices of history are interlaced. After reading This Is a Call, you'll know much more than you did before about the way that US hardcore merged into Seattle grunge, and how rock shed its skin in the 90s...It's info such as that which makes this book essential.' Record Collector
