Dave Grohl‘s six-part series with his mom, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, From Cradle To Stage, premieres Thursday (May 6th) on Paramount+. A teaser for the series was posted featuring Dave and Virginia driving around their old neighborhood singing Carly Simon‘s 1972 chart-topper, “You’re So Vain,” before Virginia questions why Dave never got into the legendary vocal group, the Manhattan Transfer. The clip wraps with Dave pointing out a bridge he used to get high under.
The series is based around Virginia’s critically-acclaimed book, Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars, and features numerous famed musicians and their moms — including Geddy Lee, Tom Morello, Brandi Carlile, Miranda Lambert, Dan Reynolds, and Pharrell Williams.
Dave Grohl said of the new show: “Having the opportunity to travel the country and tell the stories of these amazing women behind the curtain not only shed some light on the music that they inspired, but also made me appreciate the love that I was given from my own mother, my best friend. It goes without saying that we are all indebted to the women who have given us life. For without them, there would be no music.”
- Now streaming via The Coda Collection on Amazon Prime Video Channels, is the new documentary, Dave Grohl’s What Drives Us. The film — directed by Dave Grohl and produced by Foo Fighters — is based around various bands’ war stories of making their bones during their early days traveling together on the road.
- Grohl has tapped a wide range of friends and fellow musicians — including such high-profile rockers as Ringo Starr, Flea, Slash & Duff McKagan, The Edge, Lars Ulrich, Brian Johnson, Steven Tyler, No Doubt’s Tony Kanal, Black Flag’s Kira Roessler, St. Vincent, Exene Cervenka of X, and many more.
