Limp Bizkit Member Speaks On Fred Durst Feud


Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland discussed reconciling with Fred Durst after their feud in a new Drinks With Johnny interview.

“He and I didn’t get along great. We’ve had a tumultuous relationship over the years but it just took some time for us to kind of grow up as people.

“I’m sure that you being in your band have experienced that in some way to some extent. It’s being like in a family and families don’t always get along. But you’re stuck together so you got to work it out.

“We get along great now and I’ve been talking to him. I haven’t seen him in a year because of the lockdown, and I’ve been so busy with my other projects and doing other things.

“But we’ve really been ramping up in the last few days to a week, we’ve been increasingly talking more, and talking about what we’re gonna do, and everything that’s coming up, so…”

Are you guys going to be getting into some rehearsals before the shows?

“Yeah. We’re getting a place in North Hollywood or something like that to lockout. I never get nervous but I’m a little nervous to play again.”

Do you have a warm-up riff?

“No, no, I don’t play before we go on stage. If there’s a change in the set, or if we’re adding something, I will, I’ll play before we go on, but most of the time, I just want to get limber.

“I move my fingers but I don’t ever touch the guitar until I go on stage. Limp Bizkit riffs are easy, man.

“I don’t physically play but I try to get physically warmed up because I go out in the crowd a lot, I don’t know what I’m going to do, so I just have to get really limber and make sure that whatever I do, I don’t get hurt.” Ultimate-Guitar transcribed his comments.
