Earlier this week, legendary musical every-man, Dave Grohl, and his mother Virginia Grohl stopped by CBS's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 26 to talk about Virginia Grohl's new book "From Cradle to Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars."
They were also there to do what every mom loves to do best, embarrass her son on national television with a photo of a young Dave in elementary school and even a less than stellar report card.
She recounts on her son, "I didn't know he was going to be a rockstar. I knew he was going to be a musician," Virginia told Colbert. "I knew really earlier he was going to be an entertainer. I have a feeling that some of you [entertainers] have it in your blood somewhere that you just start out being goofy, silly and making people laugh."
On the topic of life on the road and Dave's past musical history, Colbert asked about how Nirvana frontman Kurt Kobain's death affected their relationship. She replied, "I think it did [change our relationship]...It was such a dark, sad time, and David came home after that, so we all sort of had to regroup. We talked a lot - we've always been able to say anything to each other - but that was a particularly incredible time. It's hard to express."
