Dave Grohl is taking a break from the Foo Fighters, who are currently working on their next studio album, to go on the road with his friends Queens Of the Stone Age. Grohl made his first appearance with QOSA last month at a show at the Troubadour in Hollywood. Grohl also plans to continue work on his metal side project Probot which will feature guest appearances from various hard rockiní stars including Slayerís Tom Araya, Lemmy from Motörhead, King Diamond, and Celtic Frostís Thomas Gabriel Warrior. Other musicians who are rumored to be in the running are Snake from Voivod, Troubleís Eric Wagner, and Venomís Conrad "Cronos" Lant.
"We've been out here in L.A. for the last few months; sometimes working, sometimes not," said Grohl in posting to fans. "Everything that we recorded came out great, and we actually mixed a bunch of it, but after four months, three studios, and who knows how many foosball games, we decided to take a break from it."
Grohl tried to appease Foo Fighter Fans by stating, "I promise it won't be too long and it'll be worth every suspenseful moment."
