It really is ‘National Bring Your Sons and Daughters to Work Day.’ Everybody in the building missed the memo here too, don’t worry.
Virginia Grohl brought her son along with her to interview on Colbert recently. Obviously she did what any great mom would do… She brought along an “embarrassing” photo of Dave and his bad report card from second grade.
“I was kicking ass up until first grade and then it was all downhill from there.”
Just in time for Mother’s Day, she just released a new book called From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars, which includes not only stories of her own past, but it includes stories from Verna Griffin, Dr. Dre’s mother; Marianne Stipe, Michael Stipe of REM’s mother; Hester Diamond, Mike D of The Beastie Boys’ mother, and more.
I love the balance of humor and solemnity in this interview. And the REAL laughs!
Adorable interview below. Everybody go awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.
