Fred Durst: Limp Bizkit Is Over…Hello!
According to Limp Bizkit front man Fred Durst, Limp Bizkit are “over”.
Back in May, news came out that Limp bizkit had signed with Cash Money and is in contract for two albums, a comeback record and a part 2 of a previous record.
In a recent interview though, not all things in Limp Bizkit seem to be peaches. In an interview with Metal Injection, Fred Durst revealed that he’s conceded the fact that the band’s popularity has waned significantly and that thei fans have moved on.
“We don’t play back home. We’ve boycotted America for many years now. I don’t know, I just don’t wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven’t properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don’t know what’s going on in America. It’s all about the new catchy thing and that’s always changing. America is driven by record sales. It’s the home of corporations. We’re just Limp Bizkit, so we don’t know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit.But here’s the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it’s over.”
Yikes, he sure hit that one right on the forehead!
So has the Limp Bizkit fame gone the way of the dinosaur? Well their last effort tanked, no one’s wearing red ballcaps backwards anymore and well…they haven’t had a hit since 2006. I think the answer is a resounding YES!!!
