"Every Musician remembers his first lesson. … Mine? Well … there was no classroom, no conservatory. No sheet music or baton. No … It was in the front seat of a beige Ford Maverick, rolling through Springfield, Virginia, on a sweltering hot summer day in 1975. My teacher? My Mother. Ms. Virginia Hanlon Grohl." - David Grohl --- #FromCradleToStage out April 18. Preorder available now at FromCradleToStage.com
Virginia Hanlon Grohl is an educator and the mother of one of the greatest musicians of all time, Dave Grohl!
Virginia Grohl has written a book of stories told by mothers to some of the biggest rock stars, all while disclosing some of her own personal stories.
To celebrate his mom’s book, Grohl posted this photo on Instagram:
"But beyond any biological information, there is love, something that defies all science and reason. And that, I am most fortunate to have been given. It’s maybe the most defining factor in anyone’s life. Surely an artist’s greatest muse. And there is no love like a mother’s love. It is life’s greatest song. We are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music." - David Grohl --- #FromCradleToStage out April 18. Preorder available now.
