Last week, Dave Grohl did an AMA on Reddit and in the middle of the normal AMA chaos, a roommate of one of the members of the Pittsburgh band Winter Brave linked to one of their songs, asking Grohl to give it a listen. He did, he loved it and Winter Brave kinda blew up over night.
Dave Grohl and his Fighters of Foo have been going strong touring and recording since 1994, doing one show and one album after the other almost constantly for those 18 years. So perhaps they need a good rest. After rumors of a break-up, frontman Grohl put out a letter today saying the band just needed to take a bit of a hiatus.
Rock bands like to talk big about how they’re going to rock so hard, the earth’s going to split and all Hell’s going to break out, but at a recent show in New Zealand, the Foo Fighters, Tenacious D and thousands of fans rocked so hard it set off earthquake detectors.
