Dave Grohl says Foo Fighters will take a break

Foo FightersEchoes, Silence, Patience & Graceband plans to take a break

Grohl didn’t specify exactly how long that would be, but he did say the band will stay out of the U.K. for as long as a decade and will “come back when people really miss us.”

“We've never taken a really big, long break. I think it’s time,” he said. “It’s a funny place being in the band now because we’ve been a band for about 14 years."

The Foo Fighters’ longtime fans no doubt aren’t feeling their loyalty rewarded right now, but given that the band has released a studio album every couple years since many of its fans were preteens, maybe taking a breather isn’t such a bad idea.
