As previously reported, Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) and his mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl will be hosting a new six-part series based on Virginia’s book “From Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars.” Dave will direct the show, which is now set to premiere on May 6 via Paramount+.
Dave had the following to say about the new show, which will find various musicians and their mothers discussing their lives:
“I believe that the relationship between a musician and their mother is so important because it’s the foundation of their understanding of love, which is surely every artist’s greatest muse. 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.”
Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters) has shared a new trailer for his upcoming documentary “What Drives Us.” The film, which “explores motivations, recounts personal anecdotes, and explores the physical and psychological toll of touring in vans via interviews with members of van tour veteran bands,” will be released on April 30 through Amazon’s “The Coda Collection.” Grohl commented:
“This film is my love letter to every musician that has ever jumped in an old van with their friends and left it all behind for the simple reward of playing music. What started as a project to pull back the curtain on the DIY logistics of stuffing all of your friends and equipment into a small space for months on end eventually turned into an exploration of “why?” What drives us?”
Dave Grohl (Foo Fighters, Nirvana) will be releasing a new book titled “The Storyteller – Tales Of Life And Music” on October 5 via Dey Street Books. The effort will feature various stories from the musician’s life and it can be pre-ordered HERE.
“There is a common thread that runs throughout everything that I do: storytelling. Whether in song, documentary film or on the page, I have always felt compelled to share moments from my life. This inclination is a huge part of what excites me creatively but also as a human being. In March 2020, realizing that my day job with the Foo Fighters was going to go on hold, I started an Instagram account (@davestruestories) and decided to focus all of my creative energy on writing some of my stories down, something I love doing but I’ve never really had the time for.
I soon found that the reward I felt every time I posted a story was the same as the feeling I get when playing a song to an audience, so I kept on writing. The response from readers was a soul-filling as any applause in an arena. So, I took stock of all the experiences I’ve had in my life-incredible, difficult, funny and emotional-and decided it was time to finally put them into words. Now with the amazing people at Dey Street Books I’m excited and honored to announce ‘The Storyteller‘, a collection of memories of a life lived loud.
From my early days growing up in the suburbs of Washington, DC, to hitting the road at the age of 18, and all the music that followed, I can now share these adventures with the world, as seen and heard from behind the microphone. Turn it up!”

Each episode will find famous musicians and their mothers discussing their lives. Bruce Gilmer, ViacomCBS president of music, music talent, programming and events, commented:
“We are thrilled to re-invent some of our most storied and impactful music franchises, including ‘Behind The Music’ and ‘Yo! MTV Raps’, for Paramount+. In addition, we will partner with some of the biggest names across the music industry to bring exclusive and unique content to the platform, such as Dave Grohl’s ‘Cradle To Stage’ based on his mom’s critically acclaimed book, and many more to come.”
Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl has shared a thank you letter that he wrote for the supporters of the Save Our Stages Act. The initiative recently passed as part of the $900 billion stimulus deal, which includes “$15 billion in dedicated funding for live venues, independent movie theaters, and cultural institutions.”
Grohl said the following:
“A huge, heartfelt thank you to everyone who supported the Save Our Stages Act, which passed yesterday as a part of the economic stimulus bill.
The preservation of America’s smaller, independent venues is not only crucial to the millions of concert goers whose lives are bettered by experiencing their favorite artists in the flesh, but to the future of music itself, as it gives the next generation of young musicians a place to cut their teeth, hone their craft, and grow into the voices of tomorrow.
The absence of live music this year has left us all longing for that communal feeling of connection, one that is best felt when joined in a song. The Save Our Stages Act brings us one step closer to sharing that feeling again, one that I hope we can all experience again very soon. Everyday we’re one step closer.
