Grohl read Octopus’s Garden, a children’s book inspired by the Beatles song of the same name. “After a busy day of rocking out, I like to relax by telling stories about places I’d like to go,” Grohl said in the introduction. “Sometimes I imagine being up in space, zooming through the stars, or traveling through time with enormous dinosaurs. Sometimes, I like to be under the sea.”

Before getting into the story, Grohl shared why he was especially fond of it. “I love this story because it was written by someone who plays the drums, just like me!” He exclaimed.

Of course, Grohl has a book of his own he recently released as his memoir THE STORYTELLER: Tales of Life and Music was released in early October.

Grohl’s memoir is exactly as epic as you would imagine. Just take a look at this press release that came out at the time of the book’s announcement.

“From hilarious childhood mishaps, touching family moments, leaving home to see the world at eighteen, to spectacular stories about Nirvana, Foo Fighters, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Iggy Pop, Paul McCartney, playing drums for Tom Petty on Saturday Night Live, performing at the White House, and even swing dancing with AC/DC, with all love, laughs, loss, and embarrassments along the way, THE STORYTELLER is a fascinating look at a life lived loud.”
