Following the likes of Elton John and Dolly Parton - Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been tapped to be read two bedtime stories to kids on CBeebies - a British free-to-air children's television channel owned and operated by the BBC.
The first episode - which airs this Friday - features Dave reading a ?“magical” Bedtime Story – based on The Beatles’ Octopus’s Garden - that was written by Ringo Starr.
The story ?“follows five children on a magical journey through the Octopus’s garden. The playful Octopus takes them on a wondrous underwater adventure, riding on the backs of turtles, playing pirates in a sunken city and sheltering from a storm in the octopus’s cave.”
“As a proud father of three, I’ve always enjoyed reading stories to my children,” Dave says. ?“It was a pleasure to read these stories for CBeebies.”
Dave’s new book The Storyteller: Tales Of Life And Music is out now October 5 via Dey Street Books and Simon & Schuster.
