Dave Grohl says his band Foo Fighters is officially taking a break.
Grohl sent an open letter Tuesday, calling the band my life but noting its a good thing for all of us to go away for a while.
Grohl told fans Saturday at the Global Citizen Festival he didnt know when the band would play together again, and affirmed that in the letter.
Grohl says hes now focused on his forthcoming Sound City documentary and album.
Bob Barker has spent millions of dollars helping elephants, bears, chimps and other animals.
For decades when he was host of The Price Is Right, he ended every show with a plea to viewers to spay or neuter their pets.
Animal Defenders International will present him with the Lord Houghton Award on Oct. 13 at a West Hollywood ceremony.
ADI President Jan Creamer says Barker was chosen not only for a lifetime of service, but for his generosity and for repeatedly taking the animal message to Congress.
