This is straight up cute and awesome – Virginia Hanlon Grohl (aka Dave Grohl’s mom) is publishing a book called “From Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars on April 25th 2017. Dave will be penning the foreward for the book, and will feature interviews with women like Dr. Dre’s mom, Michael Stipe’s mom, Amy Winehouse’s mom, Mike D’s mom, and more.
Here is the press release:
A press release for the book notes, “Virginia never expected her son to become a musician, let alone a rock star. But when she saw him perform in front of thousands of screaming fans for the first time, she knew that rock stardom was meant to be for her son. And as Virginia watched her son’s star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars.”
It will also, no doubt, have several awesome old timey pictures too!
