The Foo Fighters Go On ‘Indefinite Hiatus’


Back in August during the Reading Festival in London, Dave Grohl gave the first hint that the Foo Fighters were going to be taking a break. At the Global Citizen Festival last weekend he said We don’t have any shows after this. This is where we play as many songs as we can in a short period of time, because, honestly, I don’t know when we’re gonna do it again.” Dave confirmed on the band’s website that they are indeed taking a much needed break but assured fans that they weren’t splitting up.

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 . . .

Dave

So the Foos aren’t going away forever, but it might be a while before we see them together on stage again. I hope it’s not too long though. I have to hear “Monkey Wrench” live at least once in my life.

Just know we here at Dipped in Cream love you boys. Rest, do other stuff, then come back to us!

Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins Bring the Funny to Conan (Video)

Tay and Davey

I want to go out on the tour bus with Dave and Taylor…just for a day. I don’t think I could take much more.  From all of the LAUGHING, you guys–get your minds outta the sewer, for once.

These two are ALWAYS having fun.

Did you catch Foo Fighters on Conan last night?  It was a classic.  The boys discuss how they are nearly always in drag in their videos, why Dave doesn’t really care for the band’s name…and other funny stuff.

Does anyone else remember the toys called Food Fighters?  My oldest son, Alex had all of them back in 1988.  The chicken leg, the hotdog…all of ’em.  So 16 years ago, when I heard Dave was in a new band I totally thought it was FOOD FIGHTERS.  There’s no way I’m the only one who thought that.

FOOD FIGHTERS!

Then there was this a-hole:  The Taco.  Just look at him.

GAAAAAAH! He's gonna punch me!

Actually, they were all pretty horrible, but man, did we love ’em.

As usual, I’ve totally veered completely off-topic…or did I?? Hmmmm???

Dave Grohl Hates “Glee” and I Love Dave Grohl Even More

Dave thinks "Glee" stinks.

 

Just when I think I can’t possibly love Dave Grohl more than already do, he comes up with this awesomeness.  Turns out, Davy Grohlton (if you’re a fan, you’ll get that reference), isn’t a fan of the Glee.  While speaking with The Hollywood Reporter, Dave drew a line in the sand with his hoof and dared Glee creator, Ryan Murphy to cross it:

via The Hollywood Reporter:

“It’s every band’s right, you shouldn’t have to do f—ing Glee,” Grohl told THR following the premiere of Foo Fighters: Back and Forth, the new Foo Fighters documentary which just made its South By Southwest debut. “And then the guy who created Glee is so offended that we’re not, like, begging to be on his f—ing show… f— that guy for thinking anybody and everybody should want to do Glee.

You might be wondering, has Grohl ever actually watched the show? As it turns out, yes, he gave Glee a whirl. “I watched 10 minutes. It’s not my thing,” Grohl grizzled. But he doesn’t have as much of a problem with the series as he does with its creator.
Recounting anti-Glee comments made by Slash earlier this year and subsequent retorts by Murphy, reported by THR, Grohl explained to drummer Taylor Hawkins:
“The Glee guy, what a f—ing jerk. Slash was the first one. He wanted to do Guns ‘n’ Roses and Slash is like, ‘I hate f—ing musicals. It’s worse than Grease.’ Then [Murphy’s] like, ‘Well, of course he’d say that, he’s a washed up ol’ rock star, that’s what they f—ing do.’ And then Kings of Leon say, ‘No, we don’t want to be on your show.’ And then he’s like, ‘Snotty little assholes…’
And it’s just like, Dude, maybe not everyone loves Glee. Me included.”
Said Hawkins: “Yeah, f— that shit.”
Fellow Donkey-Faces, Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl: "We hate GLEE! Heee-yaaawwww."
Taylor Hawkins and his “YEAH man, what HE said!”, remark is classic.   I’m gonna come right out with it:  Glee is on my last good nerve.  I tend to watch it now out of the corner of my eye on mute while on the Verge of Tears.  My burning hatred for Lea Michele and that giant pie-hole of hers is getting so white-hot that I just can’t anymore.  When effing Paltrow is added to the mix, I feel as though I’m undergoing some deranged and personalized version of torture.  You know, like when the crazy neighbor captures innocent folks, then tailors a torturous death based on his victims’ personal version of Hell on Earth.  (Maybe I’ve put too much thought into this…)

This video is for Patrick…

Clearly, I’m feeling better.
