It’s not you, it’s me. After 12 years of rock-and-roll dominance, Foo Fighters founder Dave Grohl announced Tuesday his band will be taking a hiatus. But don’t consider them retired. In an open letter, the former Nirvana drummer wrote that the Foo Fighters are “my life” but, “it’s a good thing for all of us to go away for a while.” The band recently performed at New York’s Global Citizen Festival, where Grohl hinted at the break, telling fans he wasn’t sure when they would all be playing together again.
