Dave Grohl's Mom Writes a Book About Raising Rock Stars
"From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars" will arrive in April 2017.
Over the course of two years, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, the mom of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, set out to answer a series of questions regarding rock stars -- most prominently: "How'd they get here?" She figured who better to ask than the ones who raised them: their moms.
The result is the upcoming book From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars, which is due April 25, 2017, from Seal Press.
To provide a big-picture overview, Hanlon Grohl interviewed a handful of prominent mothers, including Verna Griffin, Dr. Dre's mom; Janis Winehouse, Amy Winehouse's mom; Donna Haim, mother to the Haim sisters; Marianne Stipe, mother of R.E.M.'s Michael Stipe; Hester Diamond, mom of Beastie Boys' Mike D; and Patsy Noah, mom of Maroon 5's Adam Levine.
The book will also include a series of exclusive Grohl family photos, as well as a forward written by Dave Grohl himself.
