While the Grohl family had always been musical - the family sang together on long car trips, harmonizing to Motown and David Bowie - Virginia never expected her son to become a musician, let alone a rock star. But when she saw him perform in front of thousands of screaming fans for the first time, she knew that rock stardom was meant to be for her son. And as Virginia watched her son's star rise, she often wondered about the other mothers who raised sons and daughters who became rock stars.

Virginia Grohl, mother of Dave Grohl, had not seen any of it coming. Not the arenas of screaming fans, not Nirvana or the Foo Fighters, not the induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and certainly not her son, Dave, performing with Sir Paul McCartney at the White House. Theirs had always been a life full of music - the Grohl family sang together on long car trips, harmonising to Motown and David Bowie - yet Virginia never expected her son to become a musician.

Everyone has a story. The following interview is taken from the best of Andrew Denton's award-winning Enough Rope series. Uncouth, unwashed, inarticulate, egotistical – we all know the rock star image. David Grohl has sold more than 40 million CDs in the last decade and a half, roaming the world to packed arenas everywhere, playing in bands Nirvana and now of course the Foo Fighters. In an industry full of conformism marketed as the opposite, he is a true individual, a man unafraid to be himself: David Grohl.
