Hey dudes,
Dave Grohl just confirmed a previous announcement he made that his band, the Foo Fighters are going on a hiatus for an unknown amount of time. He says that they aren't actually splitting up, but its time for a break. Here is a direct quote from his blog on their site:
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'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...


Personally I'm really proud of how far they've gone, and I hope they come back soon. It still seems like yesterday that Nirvana was just destroyed by Kurt Cobain's death, and Dave Grohl was joining the Foo Fighters. I fully expected the band to last under a year, but they've been going strong this whole time, as well as given us several great great songs for us to enjoy. To this day I love playing "Times Like These" on acoustic, and one of the last concerts I went to with my sister and brother in law was to watch the Foo.

Wait damn, I need to do a cover song of times like these...
