Dave Grohl Confirms Foo Fighters Hiatus
Frontman pens open letter to fans on Facebook announcing their break...
Foo Fightersare to take a break from music.
Earlier this week, a rep for the rockers stated that the band were "definitely not breaking up" following Grohl's comments at a gig in New York, with the singer now explaining they will be taking a hiatus in an open letter to fans on Facebook.
Thanking their followers for their support of the years, he wrote: "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."
Grohl continued: "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... 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.
"Me, Taylor, Nate, Pat, Chris, and Rami... I'm sure we'll all see you out there somewhere... Thank you, thank you, thank you."
The frontman went on to add that he intends to finish his Sound City documentary, adding: "It could be the biggest, most important project I've ever worked on. Get ready... it's coming."
