For Moms About To Rock (We Salute You)

When suburban mother of two Judy Davids picked up a guitar and conspired with the neighborhood moms to form an all-mom rock band, she never imagined it would actually happen. Within weeks, the Mydols were born. Did they have a clue what they were doing? Nope. But from that point on, it was full steam ahead and never mind the laundry.

Rock Star Mommy is a rallying cry for every woman who fondly recalls when she spent more time in mosh pits than "Mommy and Me" classes. From the moment Judy Davids donned a pair of go-go boots and jumped onstage, she embarked on an unforgettable journey. Rock Star Mommy chronicles Davids' experiences as a music fan, a mother, and the leader of the Mydols--one of the first "mommy" rock bands in the country.

If you've ever had the urge to grab a guitar, dye your hair pink, and turn your minivan into a makeshift tour bus, you'll find a kindred spirit in Judy Davids. Rock Star Mommy is the perfect companion for any mom who's ever wanted to raise good kids--and raise a little hell at the same time!

"Let's get one thing clear: The Mydols don't take any lip." --People Judy Davids was a suburban soccer mom with rock 'n' roll dreams when she picked up a guitar and decided to start a mom rock band. Soon after, the Mydols were born. Suddenly Judy found herself in the pages of the supermarket tabloid The Sun while shopping for Lunchables. She lives in Royal Oak, Michigan, with her husband, John, sons Dylan and Willie, and a black Labrador retriever named Ozzie.
