Virginia Hanlon Grohl



Virginia Hanlon Grohl, the mother of Grammy-winning rock star Dave Grohl, retired from a 30-year teaching career, then jumped on tour buses and planes to travel to rock shows throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe and Asia with her son and the Foo Fighters. Her next tour, travelling to meet the mothers of other stars, provided the profiles for her book, From Cradle to Stage.
Her conversations with the women of this special sorority yielded surprising answers to questions about raising creative children and the importance of family history and values. She looks forward to sharing some of those stories at BIGSOUND.
