Taking Names: Foo Fighters bow out for now after 18 years together
After 18 years, seven albums and 10 Grammys, the Foo Fighters are taking a break.
Guitarist and lead singer Dave Grohl wrote a letter to fans confirming speculation that sprang up after he told a Central Park audience on Saturday at the Global Citizens Festival that he wasn’t sure when the group would be playing again.
“Without making a big deal out of it, we don’t have any shows after this. This is it, man,” he said before the group launched into “Learn to Fly.” “Honestly, I don’t know when we’re going to do it again.”
Mr. Grohl’s letter does not call the situation a breakup, but he made no promises for future material.
Runners-up for the prize announced in New York on Monday were Patricia Marx’s novel “Starting From Happy” and Nate DiMeo’s fictional “Pawnee,” based on the setting of NBC’s “Parks and Recreation,” for which Mr. DiMeo is a staff writer.
The winner receives $5,000.
A piano used by Stevie Wonder when he was a student in Michigan has been loaned to the Museum of the American Printing House for the Blind in Louisville, Ky., and will be on display starting next week.
The 1922 Steinway grand piano was long used by students at the Michigan School for the Blind, where Mr. Wonder, a child prodigy, studied in the mid-1960s. Mr. Wonder signed with Motown at the age of 11 and went on to become a singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist.
Museum spokeswoman Roberta Williams told the Courier-Journal in Louisville that the piano will be on loan indefinitely. It goes on display starting Oct. 11.
