Dave Grohl on the Foo Fighters breaking up: "It's like your grandparents getting divorced. It's not gonna f*ckin' happen"


Dave Grohl and Foo Fighters have had to postpone some upcoming shows as the frontman recovers from arm surgery. 


At this week’s Pollstar Live conference in Los Angeles, Dave revealed he had surgery on his arm last week - “This is something I’ve had to deal with for a long time and it’s not the end of the world but I did have to have surgery on my arm because I need it to pay the rent”


 Dave continued -


“It’s funny having surgery because you actually get a little bit of rest.  Right before they wheeled me in [for surgery] the guys said ‘hey, we’re going to give you something that’s going to make you feel really good’ and I thought I finally get to take a nap.”


The nap was needed - especially since Grohl says the Foos have no plans to slow down.

“For the first twenty years of our band it was, let’s make another record and that’s probably going to do it. Let’s get one more in there and call it a day,” Grohl said. “Then it gets to the point to where I refer to it like imagine your grandparents getting a divorce. I’m sure it happens sometimes, but why? You can’t break up. Who even cares any more? Just go play shows.”


At a recent concert in in Atlanta, Dace also was on record saying -“I don’t know when y’all are gonna see us again, but you will… because we’re too f*ckin’ old to break up. It’s like your grandparents getting divorced. It’s not gonna f*ckin’ happen.”
