Now Dave Grohl says that he’s not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. They’re not breaking up, but a hiatus is in order. Grohl says that’s how the band keeps it together—they all have to go away for a while. Not sure what other members are up to, but Grohl says that he’s gonna finish up his Sound City documentary about the studio where he and a bunch of other bands have recorded some epic albums.
Mellon Collie goes diamond
Mellon Collie and teh Infinite Sadness
It’s been out for damn near two decades—hell, when did “Zero” and “Bullet With Butterfly Wings” hit the radio? 1995!?! Wow! Well, the epic double-disc Mellon Collie and the Infinite Sadness from Smashing Pumpkins has been certified Diamond from the Recording Industry Association of America. What that means is that the eclectic album has sold 10 million copies. If you’re looking to boost those numbers even higher, you may want to wait until the remastered version is released December 3rd. Smashing Pumpkins will be at the Chiavetz Arena in St. Louis October 18th.
