[News] Dave Grohl Confirms Foo Fighters Hiatus

Over the weekend there was a lot of speculation that lengendary rockers Foo Fighters were on the verge of a breakup. It was all based on a comment he made in passing while perfroming in front of thousands of fans in Central Park for the Global Citizen Festival that had the internet clamoring for clarification. Today front man Davie Grohl finally took to the internet to set the record straight:

 

"Hey everyone...

Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you...

Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up. But... I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world.


Yes... I was serious. I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while. It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just... put it back in the garage for a while...

But, no gold watches or vacations just yet... I'll be focusing all of my energy on finishing up my Sound City documentary film and album for worldwide release in the very near future. A year in the making, it could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on. Get ready... it's coming.

Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami... I'm sure we'll all see you out there... somewhere...

Thank you, thank you, thank you...
Dave"

And there you have it. I'm honestly not shocked that they're going to take a break. They all have their wives, babies, and other projects to tend to. I'm just REALLY glad that I managed to snag tickets at the last minute and be there for what may be the last Foo Fighters show evar.
