Summary
"While the Grohl family had always been musical--the family sang together on long car trips, harmonizing to Motown and David Bowie--Virginia never expected her son to become a musician, let alone a rock star. But when she saw him perform in front of thousands of screaming fans for the first time, she knew that rock stardom was meant to be for her son. And as Virginia watched her son's star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars. Were they as surprised as she was about their children's fame? Did they worry about their children's livelihood and wellbeing in an industry fraught with drugs and other dangers? Did they encourage their children's passions despite the odds against success, or attempt to dissuade them from their grandiose dreams? Do they remind their kids to pack a warm coat when they go on tour?"--
Summary
The mother of Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl draws on interviews with such women as Verna Griffin, Dr. Dre's mother, and Marianne Stipe, Michael Stipe of REM's mother, to describe what it's like to be a rock and roll mom
