On the way
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.
