Dave Grohl’s Mom Said So


Virginia Hanlon Grohl is writing a book about rockstar parenting due for release in April 2017 from Seal Press. The material will be drawn from her experience raising Dave Grohl, as well as from interviews with other rock moms including Marianne Stipe (Michael Stipe), Verna Griffin (Dr. Dre), Janis Winehouse (Amy Winehouse), and more. The book is titled From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars, and features some never-before-released Grohl family footage. Mark your calendar if you’ve been dying to see some Foo Fighter baby pictures.
