Dave Grohl says Foo Fighters will never break up

Chris Shiflett and Dave Grohl of the Foo Fighters perform onstage at DIRECTV Super Saturday Night 2019 at Atlantic Station on February 2, 2019 in Atlanta, Georgia.

"We’re too f*ckin’ old to break up,” the frontman said

Dave Grohl has assured Foo Fighters fans that the rock group will never break up. 

The band have released a mammoth nine studio albums during their career, starting with 1995's self-titled effort. Their last release Concrete and Gold reached number one in both the US and the UK.

While Grohl and co have gone through their fair share of hardships – including Grohl breaking his leg on stage in 2015 – it doesn't look like 50-year-old rocker has any plans to call it a day.

Speaking at the Pollstar Live conference in Los Angeles earlier this week, Grohl told the audience he had undergone surgery on his arm so he could continue playing for years to come.

“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 continued. “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.”

Speaking during the band's recent Super Bowl gig in Atlanta, Grohl echoed those sentiments, 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,” he told the crowd. “It’s like your grandparents getting divorced. It’s not gonna f*ckin’ happen.”
