Dave Grohl’s mom writes book about moms who raised rock stars
It’s probably crazy seeing your child reach rock stardom, and Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, is giving the world an inside look into a mother’s mind in her new book From Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars.
In the book, Grohl wanted to share what goes through a mother’s mind as her children climb the musical ranks and, according to the book's preorder, calls upon other rock star moms to answer some of the most important questions: "Were they as surprised as she was about their children's fame? Did they encourage their children's passions despite the odds against success? Do they remind their kids to pack a warm coat when they go on tour?"
The other rock star moms she recruited for the book include Marianne Stipe, the mother of REM's Michael Stipe; Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse's mother; Patsy Noah, Adam Levine's mother; and Hester Diamond, the mother of Mike D of the Beastie Boys.
According to the book's preorder on Amazon, From Cradle to Stage includes exclusive family photographs and a foreword by Dave Grohl. The book is set to be released April 25 of next year and is available for preorder here.
