Weekend Gold Coast Bulletin - - NEWS -

JUST when you thought you’d heard it all, along comes Dave Grohl’s mum. The Foo Fight­ers front­man’s teacher-turnedau­thor mum, Vir­ginia

Grohl, will de­liver the key­note ad­dress at the 17th an­nual Big­sound Mu­sic Con­fer­ence in Brisbane from Septem­ber 4-7. Mrs Grohl in­ter­viewed the mums of rock stars in­clud­ing Beastie Boys’ Mike D, Rush’s Geddy Lee, Mi­randa Lam­bert, Tom Morello, Amy Wine­house, Michael Stipe, Adam Levine and Dr Dre about their ex­pe­ri­ences rais­ing cre­ative chil­dren for her book From Cra­dle to Stage.

Mrs Grohl re­tired from teach­ing af­ter 30 years and joined the Fooeys on the road in the US, Canada, Europe and Asia. She’ll share sto­ries from the book — and a few about Dave — with fans at the con­fer­ence.
