Calling in from Budapest on tour, LIMP BIZKIT's Fred Durst spoke to Danny Bonaduce of the Philadelphia radio station WYSP Wednesday 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."According to FMQB, 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, 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." You can listen to Danny Bonaduce's entire interview with Fred Durst at this location. As previously reported, LIMP BIZKIT's July 10 concert at Mandalay Bay Casino & Resort has been cancelled over concerns about DVD rights and disagreement over the venue. The concert was to have been part of the UFC 100 mixed martial arts (MMA) championship weekend event at the Las Vegas resort.
