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 to adopt a rock ‘n roll attitude toward life. Based on Judy Davids’ experiences as a music fan, a mother, and the leader of one of the first “mommy” rock bands in the country, it tells the story of the Mydols’ path to success and the inspiration it gave Judy—and so many other moms—to embrace creativity and pursue their dreams. In Rock Star Mommy, Judy Davids tells her story — from using Manic Panic to dye her hair pink to donning a pair of go-go boots and hopping onstage to toting sound equipment around in her soccer mom minivan—and proves that making time to do what you love does not make you a bad parent, but a better, more fulfilled, and happier one.
Mom rocker Judy Davids was forty-two when she picked up a guitar for the first time and conspired with the neighborhood moms to form an all-mom rock band. 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.
