     Like Taylor, not much is known about bass player Nate Mendel.  The
biggest news on him is that he was formerly a member of Sunny Day Real
Estate, a band on Sub Pop, with ex-Foo drummer William Goldsmith. With
the future reunion of Sunny Day Real Estate, rumors were abound that Nate
would soon be leaving the Foo Fighters along with William. Nate even
issued a statement saying that although he was focused on the Foo's, he
was happy that people were even interested in a Sunny Day reunion. Soon
after, though, Nate stopped the rumors by proclaiming that S.D.R.E. will
have to find a new bassist.
