Dave Grohl to read bedtime story based on The Beatles' 'Octopus's Garden' on 'CBeebies'

Following the likes of Elton John and Dolly Parton - Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has been tapped to read two children's bedtime stories 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, 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.
