LIMP BIZKIT Drummer 'Feeling Much Better' Following Pneumonia Diagnosis

LIMP BIZKIT drummer John Otto "is feeling much better today and is on his way to recovery" after being diagnosed with pneumonia, according to a new Twitter message from the band's frontman, Fred Durst.

LIMP BIZKIT was forced to cancel a show in Oslo, Norway last night (Monday, September 27) after Otto was taken ill. The drummer has since been undergoing a series of tests to determine the seriousness of his condition.

LIMP BIZKIT is next due to perform in St Petersburg, Russia on October 1.

Earlier in the year, LIMP BIZKIT canceled its planned U.S. summer amphitheater tour in favor of a possible trek through the nation's arenas. Durst made the announcement via his official Twitter account, adding that he hoped the changes would result in "a better LIMP experience" for fans.

LIMP BIZKIT recently completed work on its new studio album, "Gold Cobra", but has yet to announce a release date for the effort.
