Are The Foo Fighters Going On A Hiatus?

Submitted by on October 1, 2012 – 11:00 am Comments

Dave Grohl must have send shockwaves through the fans of Foo Fighter when he said at a recent concert in New York that “without making a big deal out of it, we don’t have any shows after this.” “This is it, man. Honestly I don’t know when we’re gonna do it again … and this is the perfect place to do it”. Fans would probably like to take this comment of his with a pinch of salt, and would hope that it is something similar to what he had said in August at the Reading Festival, where he had mentioned, their performance there was “the last for a long time”.

But later on, he clarified on a Tweet that, he was only referring to touring in England, when had made that comment. The comment made in New York though, doesn’t seem to have any such loopholes and seems quite straightforward. Although, fans world over should probably wait for an official announcement, before they jump to any conclusions. Foo Fighters on its part has regaled audiences with its brand of alternative rock since 1994, when it was formed.

It was founded by Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl as a one-man project following the death of Kurt Cobain and the resulting dissolution of his previous band. The group got its name from the UFOs and various aerial phenomena that were reported by Allied aircraft pilots in World War II, which were known collectively as foo fighters. When the band was initially formed, it was heavily inspired by Nirvana, which was evident from the kind of music it made.

Grohl on his part also admitted to the fact that, he was heavily influenced by Kurt Cobain, as far as his songwriting was concerned. Grohl said, “Through Kurt, I saw the beauty of minimalism and the importance of music that’s stripped down”. The present band members of the Foo Fighters besides Dave Grohl include, Nate Mendel, Taylor Hawkins, Chris Shiflett and Pat Smear. Foo Fighters first received a Grammy Award for their music video for “Learn to Fly” in 2000 and have won ten others, in total.
