Default From Cradle To Stage, Virginia Grohl's book about moms of rock stars

In case you didn't know, Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave has written a book!

https://www.fromcradletostage.com/

Quote:
In From Cradle to Stage, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, mother of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, shares personal stories about Dave’s childhood alongside family anecdotes from fellow “rock moms.”

In exclusive interviews with the mothers of Michael Stipe, Adam Levine, Amy Winehouse, Miranda Lambert, Kelly Clarkson, Dr. Dre, and other music stars, Grohl asked the questions only a mom could answer: When did you hear the first chords, the drumbeats, that stellar voice that announced that music was the future? Did you encourage your child’s passions despite the odds against success? Did you worry about the unknown, unpredictable road ahead? About possible dangers? About drugs? Do you still remind him to pack a warm coat when he leaves on tour?

These answers—along with never-before-seen family photographs and a heartwarming introduction by Dave Grohl—make From Cradle to Stage the ultimate insider look at the real making of a rock star.
It releases April 18th in the US, April 25th in the UK and Europe. Check the site for where to order a copy.

I've removed this from the first post for clarity because I realised it may appear like a board competition (which it isn't) but if you want to win a copy I'm giving away three copies to fans in the UK via my website here - https://www.foofighterslive.com/2017...stars-uk-only/ [Competition now closed]

Did anyone catch Virginia on Radio 5 last night in the UK? I missed it, but they don't have it up on the site to listen to again. Was she on long?

Yeah they were busy waffling about the election through the whole episode on iPlayer by the sounds of it. Didn't spot it on a quick flick through.
