News: Dave Grohl Writes a Letter to His Fans

The rock world was hurled into confusion last week as Dave Grohl said at New York’s Global Citizen Festival, “Without making a big deal out of it, we don’t have any shows after this,” Grohl said. “This is it, man. Honestly I don’t know when we’re gonna do it again … and this is the perfect place to do it.” Were the Foo Fighters breaking up? Was this the end of an era that started after Kurt Cobain died? It turns out the answer to that is no…sort of. Here I’ll let Mr. Grohl tell you himself:

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…

  1. Sad IF the Foos are splitting, but i must admit I well in love with the bands first three albums – then fell off.
    After Dave did drumming for the Jack Black featured band Tenacious D – i felt he´ d taken the humor with him in his band. And i have this thing against humorband.
    …But still i respect Dave Grohls work, as first a drummer of the band that changed heavy metal / hard rock for life, Nirvana – then rising phoenix again as not only vocalist, but also guitarist in Foo Fighters!

    All respect – i know Dave´s always coming back! He has made himself a living legend!
    …but hoping not as a comedian!
