LIMP BIZKIT guitarist Wes Borland has responded to Marilyn Manson's scathing attack where the shock-rocker said if he were Borland, he'd "rather set [his] dick on fire than join something that I hated."
Borland was a member of Manson's touring band last summer before leaving to rejoin the reformed LIMP BIZKIT. In an interview in this week's Kerrang! magazine, Manson said, "We almost made the mistake of having Wes play guitar but he rejoined LIMP BIZKIT. That move forever eradicated my feelings on his choices in life as an artist."
When asked why he thinks Borland went back to his old band, Manson said: "That is what I find myself asking when I urinate sometimes. He said he would never go back. If the reason is money, then I'd rather roll up a $5 note and shove it up my urethra. I'd rather set my dick on fire than join something that I hated."
Responding to Manson's comments, Borland told Kerrang! magazine, "I wrote nine songs to be submitted to the Manson record and none of them made it. I was really in hired gun land there, but was sort of being told that I wasn't. So when I figured that whole thing out, I knew I was never going to get an inch into that band.
"I love Manson," he added. "He's definitely one of the wildest personalities I've ever been around and one of the smartest people I've ever met but it's the Marilyn Manson show over there — LIMP BIZKIT is more of a band."
