Virginia Grohl’s From Cradle To Stage may be the coolest parenting book ever written. In it, the woman who raised one of the planet’s most formidable rock stars, tells stories about the supportive and protective role that mothers tend to play in the lives of their musician children. As both a mother and a teacher, Grohl knows all about the high and low points of raising children with such distinct – and not traditionally stable – creative ambitions. And she knows all about the delicate balance of nurturing those ambitions and offering perspective when it’s needed.
For her book, Grohl interviewed many different mothers of famous musicians and discovered some commonalities between all their unique stories.
At BIGSOUND, Virginia Grohl will relay what she’s learnt from raising a rock star, as well as speaking to other mothers in the same boat and maybe even let a few stories about her beloved David slip while she’s at it.
