In 2007 Fred Durst directed a movie called The Education of Charlie Banks, which, believe it or not, opened to mostly positive reviews. If you noticed this, you might’ve thought, "well, good for him, looks like Fred Durst is finally putting all of that embarrassing nü metal business behind him."
*Buzzer sound* wrong answer.
The original line-up of Limp Bizkit is back together and planning to release an album after an 8-year hiatus. The line-up includes guitarist Wes Borland who you’ll remember left the band in 2001 because he thought the band limited him artistically and had become a "sell out" band. Why now? According to a joint statement released by Durst and Borland, the reason is thus:
"We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other. Regardless of where our separate paths have taken us, we recognize there is a powerful and unique energy with this particular group of people we have not found anywhere else. This is why Limp Bizkit is back."
However, previous evidence indicates that it probably has more to do with the nookie than personal disgust with Evanescence, or whatever "heavy popular music" means. Oh well, all that matters is that we get a Family Values tour 2009; question, are those Puddle of Mudd guys still around? They’d be awesome for that.
