During a show in New York over the weekend with Neil Young, Band of Horses, and the Black Keys, the Foo Fighters’ Dave Grohl admitted that his band may not be (ever)long for this world, though they’ll forever live on in Best Music Videos of the 1990s specials and repeats of Me, Myself, & Irene on FX.
During the band’s epic set at the massive Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park on Saturday (September 30), Grohl told the 60,000 crowd in attendance that “this is it,” reports Billboard.
Before playing “Learn To Fly,” the group’s fourth song of the night, Grohl said: “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.” (Via)
It’s impossible to know if he’s just referring to the Foos going on a hiatus from touring and recording for awhile, or if BOOM this is it for the group, who’ve been around for nearly 20 years, or four times as long as Grohl was in Nirvana. Either way, without the Foo Fighters around for any amount of time, modern rock radio gets A LOT less interesting. For every new song they don’t put out, that just means an extra slot for Linkin Park. Boo. But hey, maybe Grohl will finally reunite with Krist and Kur…oh, yeah, that’s right. Never mind.
