Dave Grohl will be an upcoming guest on Bedtime Stories, a kids TV program on the BBC’s CBeebies pre-school channel.

On the first of two episodes, premiering October 8, the Foo Fighters frontman will read from Octopus’s Garden, a children’s book written by Ringo Starr based on the 1969 Beatles song of the same name.

“As a proud father of three, I’ve always enjoyed reading stories to my children,” Grohl says. “It was a pleasure to read these stories for CBeebies.”

If you’re looking for more Dave Grohl stories, look no further than The Storyteller, the iconic musician’s first ever memoir. The book will be released tomorrow, October 5.

Grohl is currently on a book tour in support of The Storyteller, which continues Tuesday in New York City.
