Foo Fighters Say Goodbye To Music… For A While

Just for a little while! Not forever… right you generation-defining rockers?!

The Foo Fighters played two seemingly EPIC back to back shows this weekend at England's famed Reading/Leeds festivals, and during their Sunday performance at Reading, Foo Fighter frontman Dave Grohl bid adieu to the spotlight!

Dave shared with his many exuberant fans:

"Well, well, well. The f*cking Reading festival. You guys realize we've got a lot of songs to play. It's the last show of the tour and it's the last show for a long time."

The passionate lads then went on to slay SO many of their hits AND Dave gave a commemorative nod to former Nirvana bandmates Krist Novoselic and the late Kurt Cobain.

While we will miss The Foo Fighters - they've soothed our aching souls on more than one occasion - the time seems ripe for a little hiatus from the 'scene,' especially as the boys are probably still feeling SO high off of their multiple Grammy wins for their latest album, Wasting Light!

Take a nice looonnggg, relaxing break musical dudes! And then PLEASE return to pleasure our senses once again!

Get nostalgic and check out some snaps of the Foo Fighters ragin' out at last year's BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend (below)!

    Maybe he just meant the end of their European tour. I'll be celebrating my birthday weekend with them in Atlanta next month!!!

    So the obligitory "rock" band that gets rolled out at every award show is going on hiatus huh? Well, now what will they do? Start begging Aerosmith or Green Day to fill those "rock" seats? It's so sad, there are so many really great bands out there…ROCK bands I am talking about not little pop princess/princes…and they just don't get any airplay. Kids listen to shit these days, it's true.

    Foo Fighters are as garage non-poppy rock as they come! They are basically one of the only reasons the rock genre is still around. No idea what ElleFromVan is going on about, but she is seriously misguided.
    Also Foo Fighters aren't taking a break. Dave Grohl confirmed this on the foo fighters face book page. He just meant that he isn't going to see London for a while as london was the last of their current tour.

    Re: ElleFromVan – ElleFromVan has no clue about Rock base on this comment…probably thinks Nickelback is the best thing since sliced bread.

    God I hate the media so much… basically anyone with a computer can say anything without doing any research whatsoever. Dave was refering to England when he made those comments. Meaning, that's the last show they would play there for a very long time. After they finish the Wasting Light Tour they will take time away from the band to settle down after a year of touring and to probably write/record a new album (like they usually do after long tours).

    This is just a classic example of the media trying to create a story out of nothing so they can get a bunch of internet hits and people freaking out. There's nothing out of the ordinary going on here on the Foo Fighters front.
