Foo Fighters Not Breaking Up, Dave Grohl Confirms
Foo Fighters' frontman Dave Grohl clarified on Tuesday that the alternative rock band is not breaking up and is just going on a temporary hiatus.
During last weekend's Global Citizen Festival in New York, the 43-year-old Grohl announced the band's plan to take a break in such a way that it was taken by some people as a sign that the group is disbanding.
His exact words were: "Without making a big deal out of it, we don't have any shows after this. This is it, man. We don't have any [shows] after this. This is the show where we come out and we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because honestly, I don't know when we're gonna do it again ... and this is the perfect place to do it."
Then, just before the start of their final song of their set, he added: "last chance to dance!" and provided more fuel to the fans' fears.
As soon as the show ended, most of the news agencies reported that Foo Fighters are going on a hiatus, but some interpreted Grohl's comments differently to gain more traction. To clear the controversy, MTV News contacted the band's representatives and they were told that the group is just on a temporary break and "They are definitely not breaking up."
Then the singer himself released a statement saying: "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."
Now that Foo Fighters is out of the picture for a while, Grohl is expected to devote most of his time to the documentary film he is directing on the legendary Sound City Studios, where his former band Nirvana's second album "Nevermind" was recorded.
