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.

Out of the Mouths of Moms

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. But within weeks, The Mydols were born and they drew national media attention from The Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, People, USA Today, The Washington Post, and the New York Daily News among others. Now, Davids goes behind-the-music with her tales of motherhood, music, and following one's wildest dreams in Rock Star Mommy: My Life As A Rocker Mom, just published by Citadel Press.

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 as leader of The Mydols, she embarked on an unforgettable journey. Rock Star Mommy chronicles Davids' experiences as a music fan, a mother, and leader of The Mydols--one of the first "mommy" rock bands in the country.

Packed with fun anecdotes and poignant observations from Judy's own experiences--such as dying her hair pink and tricking her husband into buying a thousand-dollar drum kit--Rock Star Mommy features entertaining sidebars such as "Signs You're Ready to Rock," "Mommy Rock Lingo," and "Out of the Mouths of Moms," (wise and wisecracking quotes from moms who rock).
