They are known as one of rock’s most hardworking bands, but even they need to take a break once in a while.
The Foo Fighters have been going non-stop for years but singer guitarist Dave Grohl has now revealed to Billboard’s Chart Beatpodcast that “I’m ready to take a break.”
It really has been a case of go go go for the band since the release of 2017’s Concrete & Gold album, but despite the crazy schedule Grohl also admitted that he’ll be “ready to do it again at some point,” that is when the start to look at making their next album. Grohl said: “When we start making records, it’s almost like I don’t hear the song as much as I can see them in my head,” he explained. “I don’t read music, I see music in kind of shapes and patterns. So I can see the next record, I know that there is another one there, I don’t know when but I think I know what we should do.”
Not one to sit around, Grohl is constantly working even when the band is on hiatus. When the band took a break in 2012 and 2013, he started work on the HBO documentary Sonic Highways, and has even talked about the possibility of a second season.
The Foo Fighter legacy just continues to grow as the band was recently named the No. 1 artist in the 30 year history of Billboard’s Alternative Songs Chart, with 8 of their songs making the top tracks list: “The Pretender” at No. 5, “All My LIfe” (No. 46), “Best of You” (No. 81), “Walk” (No. 99), “Rope” (No. 138), “DOA” (No. 162), “Let It Die” (No. 232) and “Learn to Fly” (No. 267).
