Brian will take on the role of the Godfather of Rock in a brand new episode called Planet Rock.
The guitarist will help the Odd Socks band members Andy, Moxy, Rio, Blu and Cousin Mac create the “best jam ever” on stage.
But before that they seek help from the music legend because guitarist Rio stops believing in himself that he can perform in front of a crowd.
And of course, Brian is able to show him how much he loves playing the guitar.
The song that they perform in the episode will be available from 18 February.
Speaking about the episode, Brian said: “I have loved working with the Odd Socks! Playing the role of their Godfather of Rock was actually a very emotional experience.
“The episode is a wonderful message of hope to kids who lose their self-confidence.
“The symbolic use of air guitar is beautifully apt. And on a broader scale I absolutely align with Andy and the Band in their quest for every kid to feel proud of their individual qualities.
“I’m backing their anti-buIlying campaign to the hilt!
“Watch out for the magic of Planet Rock!”
