Fred Durst continues the Rage Against the Machine legacy? Ha.
I'm not even going to talk about the whole Fred Durst sex tape thing. Ick.
Instead, I stumbled across a recent interview where Mr. Durst discusses how Rage Against the Machine is an influence:
"Emotionally, I was affected a lot by Rage Against the Machine, not specifically the literal intention of the words or what it was about, but the feel, the sound, those phrases that got me," Durst said. "And I believe this [Limp Bizkit's new sound] is exactly where they left off."
In the very next paragraph, Durst goes on to explain how some stupid thing President Bush said is his personal motto.
"But it's almost like President Bush said, 'You can't confuse the enemy. You send out a message and you gotta stick to it. You can't go up and down.'"
Do you think he actually has listened to Rage? Durst reminds me of Hansel from Zoolander - "Sting. Sting would be another person who's a hero. The music he's created over the years, I don't really listen to it, but the fact that he's making it, I respect that."
