Between Dave Grohl‘s many comings-and-goings, you may have forgotten that the Foo Fighters frontman has a book coming out next month. If that’s the case, then be sure to check out a new trailer for the upcoming memoir.

The minute-long clip, streaming now on YouTube, is stuffed with photos from throughout Grohl’s life as he shares why he decided to finally put pen to paper and tell the stories of his life.

“I’ve never really been one to collect stuff, but I do collect moments,” Grohl says. “My life flashes before my eyes every single day. In writing this book, I’ve tried to capture those moments as best I can.”

The book, titled Dave Grohl: The Storyteller, is due out October 5.

Meanwhile, Grohl’s been busy with his day job fronting the Foos, who just notched another number-one hit on Billboard‘s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart with “Making a Fire,” the current single off their new album, Medicine at Midnight.

Previous Medicine singles “Shame Shame” and “Waiting on a War” also earned the top spot on Mainstream Rock Airplay, making it the first Foos record to notch three number-one singles on that particular ranking from the same album.

Foo Fighters now have a total of 11 number-one Mainstream Rock Airplay singles, tying them with Five Finger Death Punch and Godsmack for fourth most in the chart’s 40-year history. In first place is Shinedown, with 16, followed by Three Days Grace and Van Halen with 15 and 13, respectively.
