In Conversation -
Virginia Grohl and Dave Grohl

Mainstage / Doors at 6:45

The first time Virginia Grohl saw her son Dave perform in front of screaming fans, she knew he was destined to be a rock star, and she was right. As Dave rose to the top of the charts, Virginia started to wonder about other musicians' mothers. She wanted to know if they were surprised by their children's fame, if they enjoyed it, if they nagged their superstar sons and daughters about what to bring on the road. In From Cradle to Stage, she answers those questions, writing from interviews with the mothers of musicians including Dr. Dre, Michael Stipe, Amy Winehouse, and more - plus her own family photographs and stories about raising a legend.

Virginia Grohl is a longtime educator and writer. She is also the mother of Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana). Dave Grohl is a 15-time Grammy-winning musician and 2-time Emmy-winning director.
