(hennemusic) Dave Grohl and his mother Virginia appeared as guests on CBS-TV's The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on April 26, and video from the program is available online. The pair were on hand to promote Virginia's new book, "From Cradle to Stage: Stories From The Mothers Who Rocked And Raised Rock Stars."

"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."

Along with reviewing teacher's comment on Dave's sixth grade report card, the Grohls also spoke about how the loss of his bandmate Kurt Cobain affected them as a family.

"I think it did [change our relationship]," explained Virginia. "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."

"Any time I felt overwhelmed with everything," added Dave, "I would just go back home, hang out with my mom and see my friends." Watch the video clip from the appearance here.
