Dave Grohl - Foo Fighters deny split

The Foo Fighters have denied splitting up.

The 'These Days' hitmakers have slammed the rumours, insisting they are simply taking a well earned break from music and could never give up on the band because they have worked so hard to make it a success.

Frontman Dave Grohl said in a statement: ''There were times when I didn't think the band would survive. There were times when I wanted to give up.

''But... I can't give up this band. And I never will. Because it's not just a band to me. It's my life. It's my family. It's my world.''

Fans panicked on Saturday (30.10.12) when Dave told the 60,000 strong crowd at Global Citizen Festival in New York: ''This is it, man. We don't have any [shows] after this''.

The rockers are adamant they will record in the future, but will be taking a short hiatus from touring to reconnect with their creativity and reassess what they have achieved so far.

Dave clarified his comment in the statement, saying: ''I'm not sure when the Foo Fighters are going to play again. It feels strange to say that, but it's a good thing for all of us to go away for a while.

''It's one of the reasons we're still here. Make sense? I never want to NOT be in this band. So, sometimes it's good to just... put it back in the garage for a while... But, no gold watches or vacations just yet.''
