Oh Oh... There's a lot of social media talk about Dave Grohl. Is he leaving the Foo Fighters? The band wasted no time to talk about it via their anticipated announcement in the form of a video -- and a very funny one at that. The clip starts with a montage of headlines about breakup rumors and the possibility of Grohl going solo. Then we see Grohl. He says that "seeing as how that Academy Awards thing went so well" he got to thinking that maybe it's time for him to do his own thing. He's speaking to producer Butch Vig, who eggs him on, telling him how great he was and how he should take the momentum and run with it. "Nothing against those other guys, I love those guys and they love me," says Grohl. "I'm holding them back. I'm setting them free. It's a win-win situation." After Vig lays out a totally fresh, new style for Grohl, electronica played without instruments, just a touch of a keyboard, Grohl calls the other band members to tell them the news.
