DAVE GROHL And Mom To Give Talk At 'Canadian Music Week'

According to The Pulse Of Radio, FOO FIGHTERS mainman Dave Grohl and his mother, Virginia Hanlon Grohl, will give a talk together at the 2019 edition of Canadian Music Week, the northern nation's big music conference and festival that will take place in Toronto next month. The 37th annual event takes place from May 6 to May 12 at various venues around the city.

The Grohls' discussion will be held on May 10 as part of the conference's Keynote Speakers lineup, where mother and son will "talk about the inspiration behind her book 'From Cradle To Stage', her delightful meetings with music moms and what to do when your child is a talented, charismatic prodigy." A question-and-answer session will follow afterwards.

Mrs. Grohl released her book, "From Cradle To Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars", in 2016. In addition to highlighting her own experiences as a rock star mom, it featured conversations with other famous musicians' mothers, including the moms of Dr. Dre, Michael Stipe, Amy Winehouse, BEASTIE BOYS' Mike D and more.

FOO FIGHTERS were forced to reschedule their performances at the two-night grand opening of The Fillmore New Orleans in February after Dave Grohl underwent arm surgery. The shows have been rescheduled to May 15 and May 16 and all tickets for the original dates will be honored.
