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.

At first I really thought this book was just be a part Judy being a rock star, however, it is SO much more than that. As I started reading it I was filled with excitement reading about her journey to accomplish her dreams. She shares the steps she took in order to get her to where she realized her dream. She didn't allow others to defeat her dream...she just kept going. She shows that when you believe in yourself and your dream, there is nothing you can't do. As an added bonus, she provides some great business tips in the book such as marketing, creating a core team and consistency.
This delightful book is one of a kind, and absolute proof that if you have a dream and set a goal, you can accomplish anything. As Judy discovered, the road to becoming a Rock Star Mommy had many peaks, valleys, and S curves, but she persevered and exceeded everyone's expectations - even her own. For all you mothers who have a dream, this book is for you. It will provide laughter, a bit of nostalgia (if you are a 70s punk rock fan), and a whole lot of inspiration. I have had the pleasure of meeting Judy and found her to be every bit as delightful in person as she comes across in her book. I am absolutely convinced that being a member of her band would never be dull and always full of adventure. A well written, easy to read book that would be perfect for a book club of Mommys!
