Moms Who Rock: P&S chat with Virginia Grohl Download

Download May 12th, 2017

Virginia Grohl, mother of Foo Fighter‘s frontman, Dave Grohl, has written a book chronicling the stories of today’s biggest rock stars and their raise to fame by talking to their first and biggest fans: their moms.

She told The Preston & Steve Show that all of these women found them in the same predicament: “what we had were little musical brains that all of a sudden blossomed into something we couldn’t control and we faced those moments of how helpless we were.”

To her surprise, it happened to each child at the same exact time, the magic age of 12-13 yrs old.

Grohl carefully curated a list of rock star moms with various backgrounds and life experiences. Verna Griffin (Dr. Dre), Marianne Stipe (Michael), Janis Winehouse (Amy), Patsy Noah (Adam Levine), Hester Diamond (Mike D) and more had very different paths but the outcome to each story was the same: it didn’t matter what we did, because [the kids] would do what they were going to do!
