Dave Grohl’s mom, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, joins the roster of mom’s who have written about raising superstars.
Dave, of Nirvana and the Foo Fighters, contributed the foreword for his mom’s piece in From Cradle to Stage. The two attended LA Times Festival of Books, where they shared an embarrassing story in which Virginia begged Dave to play drums at a jazz club for her birthday.
Less than one month ago, the Foo Fighters Instagram page shared an adorable photo of a young Dave and his mom. “There is no love like a mother’s love. It is life’s greatest song,” part of the caption reads. “We are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music.”
"But beyond any biological information, there is love, something that defies all science and reason. And that, I am most fortunate to have been given. It’s maybe the most defining factor in anyone’s life. Surely an artist’s greatest muse. And there is no love like a mother’s love. It is life’s greatest song. We are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music." – David Grohl — #FromCradleToStage out April 18. Preorder available now.
