Normal for mother worry if their children will survive on the road to get success.
The children worry their mother tell embarrassing stories.
Great cross-section of musician mothers in all genres.
Darn! I couldn't find Dave Grohl dressed up as Amy Carter on the internet when he was a kid for a play.
However, I'm betting students & their parents scoured their photo albums on potential tabloid heaven & comedy gold!
Ditto somebody photoshopped Dave's childhood photo for unlikeliest most downloaded clothed photo.
Oh to be a fly on the wall on Virginia's grandchildren asking her on that story!
