This is a funny article btw, though he's not 50.

Those are my exact same thoughts, I guess that from being such big fans we've seen enough from Dave to safely tell it's not an act, people seem to hate what seems like an act to them.

I did appreciate the humor though, there's probably millions of those about bands like nickelback and it's routine, you don't see much of that about the foos, even though there's going to be hate they're actually much more appreciated.

It's all just a total double reverse piss take - the Hard Times site is reknown for it. They will post anything that is funny - like this:
http://thehardtimes.net/2016/03/01/m...s-ago-in-mail/

The Foos one is just hung out there as a deliberate reverse satirical take on Dave getting back at the industry. If the video hadn't been so great they wouldn't have bothered.

“In theory the Foo Fighters breaking up would have been great, I can’t stand Everlong,” explained Jessica Christie, a fan of rock music made by people who aren’t old enough to be her parents."

In the same vein - that can be taken as a direct reverse piss take on the fact there is no real "rock music" made by people who aren't old enough to be her parents.

The person that said "Oh, you kooky millenials." got it. For everyone that didn't it was just a lever for site hits lol.

So this Jessica Christie also dislikes bands like the Beatles and the Rolling Stones then? Cheers on a long and happy life if small stuff like this bother you on a daily base (Y)

It's not a real person or at least not a real statement from that person if she does exist.
