Dave Grohl says he and his fellow Foo Fighters are off the road until his first baby is born in April. "We'll probably start doing some shows here and there in June and July," he tells Billboard, "but for the most part, we're just going to kind of take it easy."

The first-time papa is getting plenty of advice from those who have gone before him, including: Keep any potential baby names to yourself. "That's the first advice people gave me: 'Look, when you start thinking about names, don't f*cking tell your family. Everyone will start piping in there.'" He would not spill the beans to Billboard either, but adds, "It's a family name, so it's very nice. It's not like Moonchild or Tinkerbell or something like that."

Fatherhood may affect his songwriting, but he says a greater pull right now is the piano his wife recently gave him for his birthday. "I've never played piano, and I've always wanted to. I taught myself how to play every instrument that I play. I've never taken lessons. Just before my birthday, I sat down and started to figure out how to play piano, just by ear. I'm not f*cking Liberace, but I'm figuring it out."
