Fred Durst Talks Return Of Limp Bizkit With Bonaduce
July 1, 2009

Calling in from Budapest on tour, Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst spoke to WYSP/Philadelphia's Danny Bonaduce this morning (July 1), to discuss the return of his band. Durst said the reunion tour started with European festivals "to gear up for a U.S. tour in the fall."

Durst also discussed recent comments he made to Rolling Stone about how he had realized that "bullies" had become the Limp Bizkit fanbase. He said that he grew up picked on "as an underdog" and the rage in his music was supposed to identify with "a certain group of underdogs...unsung heroes." When the band blew up, he said he looked into the crowd and saw "bullies beating up...the audience. These are the guys who ruined my life."

When asked about his past relationships with Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera, the chatty Durst clamped up and called it "a ridiculous question...the [kind of] questions I used to answer, believe whatever you want."

Durst also discussed being older and wiser nowadays, not only when it comes to what he says in interviews, but that "there's a whole new [generation] of fans discovering us" and coming to their shows. He also briefly discussed the new material for the band's upcoming album, calling it "extremely heavy and bruising...a little bit more power to the riffs."

In other Bizkit news, earlier this week the band had to pull out of their first U.S. show in eight years. Limp Bizkit had been slated to play at the upcoming UFC 100 Pay Per View in Las Vegas on July 11, but due to DVD rights and other disagreements with the venue, the group had to cancel. Instead, Rolling Stone reports that Limp Bizkit will play somewhere else in Vegas that night at a venue to be determined.
