A new book written by Virginia Hanlon Grohl, mother of Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl, titled From Cradle to Stage: Stories from the Mothers Who Rocked and Raised Rock Stars is slated for release this coming April. According to a representative of the book's publisher it will feature a chapter on Geddy Lee and his mother Mary Weinrib, where Mary talks about what influenced Geddy to choose a musical career, and the prevalence of music in their family home. Back in July of 2015 when the Foo Fighters played a show in Toronto as part of their Sonic Highways tour, Mary Weinrib was in attendance as a special guest of Virginia. The pair were photographed together backstage and shown up on the big screen during the show (video here). Virginia revealed later that year that she planned on writing a book containing interviews with other rock moms as described in this Washingtonian article.
