Singer Dave Grohl’s Mother Virginia Hanlon Grohl Passed Away
With great sadness, we are to announce that the mother of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, Virginia Hanlon Grohl passed away on August 17, 2022, at the age of 84. May she rest in peace.
We send our thoughts and prayers to her loved ones.
Virginia Hanlon Grohl was a real legend; she came to fame with her famous son, Nirvana/Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl who she kindly called ‘David’.
A user shared a statement, reading, “Sad news about the passing of Virginia Grohl. Rest In Peace. foofighterslive The team at FooFightersLive.com sends deepest condolences to the family and friends of Virginia Hanlon Grohl. Author of the book From Cradle to Stage and producer of the TV series of the same name, Virginia invited us into the world of music’s unsung heroes: The mothers raising rockstars. The fan community has always regarded Virginia with great respect and admiration. We ask as fellow fans that you continue to give respectful space to Dave and his family at this time.”
However, as a writer, musician, and just person in her own rite, she’s engaging to listen to. This piece comes out of Liz’s archive from 2018, with a previous generation of mic and baby #1 rather than #2 in the way. Sorry about that – although, who else is going to understand the juggle, hey?
The chat came as part of the promotions for Virginia’s appearance at Big Sound 2018 to publicize her book From The Cradle to the Stage: stories from the mothers who rocked and raised rock stars (Hatchette Books).
Part of the interview was released at the time via The Music, but this is the first time the whole thing has been released, including important details about how she juggled raising a child who would enter the music industry – and how she’s kept on now as a Music Mother and (Grand)Mother with Dave’s amazing daughters too.
