Mother’s Day is here and as such We here at Rock.It Boy Entertainment would like to wish all the Mother’s a very Rockin’ Mother’s Day! Here’s a list of Rockers who say they would not be who they are today without their moms……So hug your Mom, Grandma, Aunts, Daughters, Friends or Dog. If they are a Mom, they deserve it. Because really, in their eyes WE are the Rock Stars and without them….none of us would be here enjoying life on on this Rockin’ Planet, would we? Cheers to You, MOMS!
HAPPY MOTHER’S DAY! YOU ROCK!

3. BOB DYLAN & “BEATTY”
3. On May 24, 1941 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Duluth, MN Beatrice “Beatty” Stone gave birth to Robert Zimmerman. Robert spent his early years listening to the radio a mixture of blues and country stations broadcast from Shreveport, La. with his mother on their old console radio. Young Bob Zimmerman, who became Bob Dylan, wrote this poem on a piece of notebook paper and gave it to her on a Mother’s Day. It was his first poem.
My dear mother, I hope that you
Will never grow old and gray,
So that all the people in the world will say:
”Hello, young lady, Happy Mother’s Day.”
4. ELVIS PRESLEY & GLADYS
Elvis Aaron Presley, was Born January 8th, 1935 to Gladys Love Presley, who was considered the ultimate Music Mom. Gladys, already having lost one child, Elvis’s twin brother at birth, was very protective of the young King. Even when Presley was an adult, mother and son shared a secret language in which ice cream was called ‘iddytream’ and milk was known as ‘butch’. When she died in 1958, 23-year-old Elvis was so distraught that he tried to throw himself into the grave after her. The bond between a mother and child is stronger than anything, which Gladys & Elvis clearly had.
5. JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE & LYNN
Born on January 31, 1981 in Memphis, Tennessee as Justin Randall Timberlake to Lynn Harless Timberlake. Lynn was the brain behind the name of Justin’s boy band *NSYNC. She thought it was fair to use the last letter of each original member’s first name. Great idea, Mom!
CHEERS TO ALL THE ROCKIN’ MOMS OUT THERE!
