Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl has shown plenty of respect to his musical elders over the years, but now he's turning his attention to a different kind of teacher -- the ones you find in schools. According to Loudwire, Grohl will appear in a new CBS special titled Teachers Rock, that's set to air on August 18th at 8:00 p.m. ET. The show is said to focus on education and teachers, while featuring testimonials from music and film stars about the role their own educators played in shaping them and their interests.
It's not clear whether Grohl will merely be interviewed or will perform during the broadcast as well.
Other musicians lined up for the program include Maroon 5's Adam Levine and Tenacious D's Jack Black.
The show will also have a fundraising component, with proceeds going to DonorsChoose.org, Feeding America and Teach for America.
Foo Fighters will play scattered gigs in 2012 as Grohl continues to work on his documentary on Sound City, which chronicles the history of the legendary Los Angeles studio where classic albums by artists ranging from Fleetwood Mac to Nirvana have been recorded.
The film, which does not yet have a release date, will feature interviews with many of the musicians who recorded at Sound City as well as new musical collaborations between a number of artists.
