Default Message from Dave (October 2012)

From Dave Grohl:


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 wildes...t 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

Dave, you are my inspiration. Please don't ever stop making music! Your songs (from all the bands you've been in!) have gotten me through more than you'll ever know. Foo Fighters are the most amazing band in the world in my opinion, they've kept their originality throughout every musical trend going on and i have so much respect for them because of this. I saw you at Reading this year, and although i ended up in A & E that night i can honestly say that it was the most emotional, happy, thought-provoking, uplifting, but fantastic night of my life. I later went on to review your show for an english project and wrote about every single detail. You made that weekend for me. I know the chances are that Dave Grohl is going to reading this is very little, but if he is reading this now all i want to say if thankyou, for making me the person i am today.

Hiatus is good for a band. Coldplay should take note!

Dave, It's good to take a break after all of this time. It's been a LONG time since I knew you back in Scream.... when you guys were just happy to have a place to sleep and a shower....and you have had a long and interesting ride for sure. Take a break, you and the guys have earned it and deserve it.

On a side note, I got an email yesterday from a friend about the rumors it was the LAST show and she sent her condolences.

Good god.Some people have no sense. Luckily 99.9% of us on this board do!
If the Foo's had broken up,there would of been an official announcement! Seesh! We will all be saying all this at the end of the next album & tour cycle!

Jesus, they're still spinning it into something more sensational. Where do they get 'serious hiatus' from in that message? How do you turn 'a while' into 'serious hiatus'?

Not that I want them to take a break but they need it after working so hard and putting out some amazing stuff.

It just means that the next time they come around they will be ready to rock our asses off once again!!!!
