LIMP BIZKIT Call It A Day? Fred Durst: "We were a moment in time and it's over."
From 1997 until 2000, LIMP BIZKIT was one of the biggest Heavy Music bands in the world. Their blend of Heavy Metal and Hip Hop, won the band tons of fans that were excited about hearing something completely different. The bands short lived triumphant career came to a stop when in Woodstock 99, the bands front man Fred Durst caused a huge riot that ended up turning the "peace and love" festival into a "war and hate" festival.
The '90s are obviously gone and LINKIN PARK took LIMP BIZKIT's thrones a long time ago, and Fred Durst says "it's time everyone moved on — if they haven't already." Fred: everyone moved on a long time ago!
During an interview with Kerrang! magazine, the singer said that, despite recently signing with Lil Wayne's Cash Money label, the Bizkit is, for all intents and purposes, done:
"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."
If LIMP BIZKIT was "a moment in time and it's over", why the hell sign a record contract with Cash Money? Apparently Durst and crew are not giving up on the bands wholesale — just that the U.S. population is unlikely to see LIMP BIZKIT on stage ever again:
"We've boycotted America for many years now... 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."
Who the hell "boycotts" their own market? The truth of the matter is that no venue here in the U.S. is going to take the risk of booking LIMP BIZKIT after what happened at Woodstock. Maybe it is time for LIMP BIZKIT to call it a day!
