On Saturday, Dave Grohl told a Central Park concert crowd that the Foo Fighters didn't have any more dates lined up. In August, he told a crowd in Britain it was "the last show for a long time."
And now, the band's frontman is reassuring fans the group isn't breaking up, but he is confirming that they're going on hiatus.
In a letter, he says,
"... 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"
