In a missive titled 'Hey everybody, Dave here,' the singer takes a moment to give back to the fans who are still shelling out cash to buy his albums. "Thank you all for making 'Wasting Light' the most incredible album experience of our band's 17 year history," Grohl writes.
"For real," the post goes on. "The fact that a rock and roll record, made in a garage, completely analog to tape with no help from computers, could be a #1 album around the world, AND get a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year.....well....these days that's no small feat."
To be fair, that seems like a walk in the park for the Foo Fighters, a band that is consistently at the top of the charts and has garnered Grammy noms for Best Rock Album with each of their seven albums, winning three. Still, a little humility goes a long way, and it's particularly refreshing coming from a profession where growing jaded is almost part and parcel of the career path. 'Tis the season.
Grohl displays enough wherewithal to recognize his uniquely blessed position, commenting that, "Together, we made the album of a lifetime. Again."
"It's truly inspiring," Grohl continues, "and it makes us feel like the luckiest band in the world. So thanks. It means everything to us." From a Muppets cover band in Reno to the Grammys, 2011 really has been a big year for ol' Dave Grohl.
