This is it, Foo Fighters fans. For now. But not forever. Most likely.
After hinting Saturday that his band may be taking some sort of hiatus, Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl released a statement via his publicist today seeking to clarify the group's status. In short, the band is indeed planning a break, but the world won't be without the Foo Fighters forever.
"There were times when I didn't think the band would survive," Grohl writes of the 18-year-old outfit. "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."
So there you have it. The Foo Fighters have definitely not broken up.
For now, Grohl writes, he's concentrating on finishing his documentary "Sound City," which culls from interviews with the likes of Trent Reznor, Frank Black and Lindsay Buckingham on the importance of an analog-focused recording studio in Van Nuys.
