Grohl says Foo Fighters not splitting, on hiatus

 
 

LOS ANGELES (REUTERS) - Lead singer Dave Grohl of Grammy-winning rock band Foo Fighters said on Tuesday the band was not splitting up but was taking a break.

Grohl, 43, fuelled speculation about a split by telling fans at a New York festival on Saturday that "this is the show where we come out and we play as many songs as we can ... I don't know when we're going to do it again", according to MTV News.

But in a public letter sent by Foo Fighters' representative Dana West, Grohl said the band was taking a break but had no intentions of disbanding.

"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," Grohl said.
