Foo Fighters To Make Big Announcement Tonight Via Social Media
Rumor has it that the Foo Fighters are close to breaking up. The New York Post’s Page Six recently claimed (via an unnamed source, of course) that there was tension between frontman Dave Grohl and drummer Taylor Hawkins, and that Grohl’s performance at the Oscars was the beginning of his solo career.
And though a rep for the band has claimed this is “utterly ridiculous,” there’s definitely something afoot, as the band has posted the following on their Facebook:
Iiiiiiinteresting. The obvious conclusion to jump to is that this will be the break or break-up announcement, or something like it; a “Dave’s starting a solo career” announcement would in many ways be the same thing.
Then again, maybe we’re being too negative. Maybe there’s a follow-up to 2014’s Sonic Highways on the way. Maybe the Saint Cecilia EP was a massive success and they’ve decided to make a full-length album benefiting the Paris victims. Who knows?
Anyway, keep your eyes peeled for the Foos’ social media announcement tonight. And hey, if they do break up, I wouldn’t worry about it too much — given their friends in the industry, I have a feeling these dudes could all make great music elsewhere.
