Virginia Grohl Reveals Her Biggest Worry For Dave

There are hundred’s of worthwhile reads out there, especially from musicians.
 
But how was life for the parent of a successful musician? Despite seeing the success, those rockstars are still someone’s kids and the parents are going to have the same worries for their child that any parent does.
 
Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, has released a book called “From The Cradle To The Stage” where she not only dives into her own experiences but the experiences of other mothers that include Verna Griffin (Dr. Dre’s mother), Marianne Stipe (Michael Stipe), Janis Winehouse (Amy Winehouse), Patsy Noah (Adam Levine), Donna Haim (Haim sisters) and Hester Diamond (Beastie Boys’ Mike D).
 

 
Recently in promoting the book, Virginia was recently interviewd by The Guardian to speak on many things, including her biggest fear for Dave;
“Grohl says that the “bleak days” when young band members or singers “go from city to city with just enough money for hot dogs and Slurpees aren’t what mothers of the musician-adventurers fear”. It’s the “next step, the one where money and fame replace impoverished obscurity”. I ask her about Dave’s new-found celebrity back in the early 90s. “I did worry about women.” Then she laughs: “I don’t know how to tell you this, it’s so embarrassing, but my biggest fear was that Madonna would snatch him up.” As for drugs, she never minded about marijuana (“I’m the only person I know who hasn’t done it yet; I still might”). In any case, Dave gave up mushrooms and weed aged 20, and understood enough about his hyperactive tendencies never to try cocaine or heroin (“You see the way I drink coffee!” he has said. “It’d be all over!”).”
 
Recently Dave interviewed his mother and they talked about things such as a weekly trip to a Jazz club when Dave was young
