Fans of a certain former Nirvana drummer’s melodic hard rock outfit can breathe a little more easily now. Foo Fighters are not splitting up!
Rumours about the 11-time Grammy winners’ demise began to circulate after frontman Dave Grohl made the following statement during their Sunday night set at the Reading Festival:
“You guys realise we’ve got a lot of songs to play. It’s the last show of the tour and it’s the last show for a long time.”
However, the unofficial ‘nicest man in rock’ took to Twitter today to confirm that the Foos aren’t disbanding and that all the speculation has been based on a tiny little misunderstanding.
Jeesh! Relax…..I was only talking TO England!! ABOUT England…Stop eavesdropping internets!

That’s all you eavesdroppers told!
Grohl, Taylor Hawkins and the other three will actually reconvene as early as September 5 for a Rock The Vote event at Charlotte, North Carolina and are still scheduled to appear at a handful of festivals at the end of the same month.
Watch the video below to see just how angry Grohl can really get!
