Dave Grohl says Foo Fighters will take a break
Suddenly the title of the Foo Fighters’ last album, Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace, is starting to make a little more sense. Frontman Dave Grohl told BBC radio that the band plans to take a break following its tour this past summer.
“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.
