We watched the show Saturday night from Central Park in NYC, it was simulcast on Palladia, and it was pretty awesome... but indeed Dave said something like "There are no dates scheduled after that one and dont know when we play together again, so this may be it".
I hope everyone got a chance to see Neil Young and Crazy horse in that broadcast, it was pretty cool. Neil Young is the greatest human being on the planet. The Black Keys and Foos also played, it was fun to watch.
I sure wish my fellow KansasCitians has shown SOME FKG SUPPORT!!! for Neil last time he came through, BUT NOOOOOO!! so they roped off half of the SC, and Neil thinks we dont like him, and now I have to travel to see him live... which I will.

Man, I'm glad I finally caught the Foo's on their last trip through KC. It was my only time seeing them live and hopefully not the last. But we surely haven't heard the last from Dave Grohl by any means.

The Foos have been around too long and put out too many albums to still remain a consistant band - after seven LPs and seventeen years of existence, it's inevitable that they're going to take time off every now and then.
They took an indefinite hiatus in 2008 and returned with a new album less than three years later - I don't think we have to get too worried about whether or not we get to see them again.

At least we still have Foo's Frozen Custard. There will be an FF reunion before 2020. They just need some space.

What he said is literally true, but they'll be back. He's got a documentary called Sound City he's finishing up. I saw them in Outside Lands in August and Delunafest last weekend and they are still as good as they've ever been live.

I'd like to see another release from Them Crooked Vultures.

I've still never [yet] seen the FOO FIGHTERS, for I saw NIRVANA in fall, 1993 at Memorial Hall. But I say even if DAVE GROHL and crew does quit now - that they'll likely be back. Come on! In 2008 (was it?) I heard they about sold-out Kemper Arena. The money is TOO good, they will be back.

And the Sprint Center show was cool too cause the band played outside before the show on a wagon in whigs I missed that too

My sons & I just happened to walking towards the Sprint Center when we encountered the Foo's on a flatbed trailer:
Something we'll never forget. Right place at the right time.

Yeah, I remember hearing about how the FOO FIGHTERS performed very briefly out in front of the Sprint Center prior to the actual concert. Wasn't that primarily to 'piss' off Fred Phelps and his LOSER goon squad at the Westboro Baptist Church in Topeka? Ha-ha-ha-ha-ha!! What a bunch of gimps!

Maybe Grohl will make another Probot album. The first one is great!

Bubba, here's a video of that protest "concert" outside the SC. Funny stuff.

As I mentioned before that I saw a list of the richest drummers on MSN.com a month ago. Dave Grohl is worth $225 million and is third on the list. Only Ringo Starr ($300 million) and Phil Collins($250 million)are worth more money.
I'm surprised how much money he's worth for being in Nirvana and Foo Fighters. It's been a fairly short period of time in both acts compared to the drummers for The Beatles and Genesis.
My folks got an email saying that Westboro Baptist Church is going to picket some churches in this area. One of them is the church I grew up in and don't know the reason why either.

This is Dave's post on FB from earlier today. It doesn't look like they are calling it quits at all. Maybe a hiatus as they have done before but not quits.
Dave here. Just wanted to write and thank you all again from the bottom of my heart for another incredible year. (Our 18th, to be exact!) We truly never could have done any of this without you...
Never in my wildest dreams did I think Foo Fighters would make it this far. I never thought we COULD make it this far, to be honest. There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up. But... 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.

Thanks for the info/repost NEW

Kurt, WBC doesn't need a reason to picket. They just do because they're stupid and they can, unfortunatley.
October 02, 2012 at 03:29 PM
I hate it when I make a typo after saying someone else is stupid - that would be "unfortunately"
