Last year Dave Grohl’s mum Virginia released a book titled From Cradle to Stage: Stories From the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars.

The book features memories from her famous son’s youth and interviews with the mothers of other famous musicians, including the mums of Geddy Lee, Dr. Dre, Amy Winehouse, Michael Stipe and a stack of others - the book is now being adapted as a television series, also titled From Cradle to Stage.

The documentary-style series will feature Virginia Grohl’s personal stories about the young Dave, as well as interviews with some of her peers.

“I’m excited to introduce the viewing public to the strong, loving women who have supported the insistent dreams of their musical sons and daughters,” Virginia Grohl said in a statement. “Viewers will join all the mothers around a table when they meet for the first time at a celebratory dinner where secrets and stories will be shared and compared.”

Both Dave and his mum are executive producers of the show which is being launched by concert promoters Live Nation in their first content series endeavor. The series has not yet been picked up by an Australian network.

Everyone's favourite top bloke Dave Grohl said, “I’m beyond excited to join in on the next step of my mother’s project to explore the stories of other musicians who were as fortunate as me, having been raised by such amazing women. Plus…I owe her one.”
