DJ Lethal, John Otto Out Of Limp Bizkit?
Posted by Chris Harris on April 1, 2012 in Departures, NewsThat’s the word. In fact, I have been hearing for more than a month that DJ Lethal was out of Limp Bizkit.
Lethal revealed in a series of Twitter posts that he and drummer John Otto have become estranged from Fred Durst, and could be out of the band real soon.
“So far the only news I’ve heard is that Fred has plans for a ‘new’ Limp Bizkit which doesn’t include John Otto or I. I’m hoping for the best,” writes Lethal.
Limp Bizkit just signed a new deal. Wouldn’t Lethal have been a signatory to that deal?
“From what I understand, Fred doesn’t approve of our lifestyle which includes partying and fun. I don’t want to cause drama. It’s unfair,” Lethal adds.
“I’ve tried to reach out and make things better. But Fred seems to have made up his mind. Bands fight and argue all the time. [I] just don’t get it.
“This is not an April Fool’s joke, unfortunately,” the DJ says. “I love being in Limp; it’s been my life for 15 years. A lot of good people and good times.
“I’m not going to whine about it. I just had to vent because it’s pretty sad. And had to address all the fans that a going to a 1/2 Bizkit show.”
Interesting. Does this mean Fred Durst has actually…dare I say it…grown up? Matured? Can’t be. It can’t fucking be.
This is a strange move. A “new” Limp Bizkit? People don’t care about the old Limp Bizkit — why would they care about a new one? Frankly, I believe this is Cash Money’s doing.
