Limp Bizkit



The billing dispute between Machine Head[art] and [art]Limp Bizkit was the subject of much Internet chatter prior to this past weekend's U.K. edition of the Sonisphere festival, with Robb Flynn and Co. pulling out of their slot at the event after having been bumped down the lineup with the addition of Fred Durst and his LB bandmates.

While Machine Head eventually returned to the bill in the slot below Limp Bizkit as the "special guests", many people had their own opinions on the situation, one of those being LAMB OF GOD guitarist Willie Adler.

Komodo Rock's Krissy Elliott spoke with Adler at the festival and asked for his views on the Machine Head/ Limp Bizkit controversy.

Komodo Rock: What do you think of the whole issue surrounding Machine Head refusing to play then coming back on the bill?

Willie Adler: I'm glad they came back on. It's a matter of… they just didn't wanna open up for Limp Bizkit, and I agree with them. I wouldn't wanna open up for Limp Bizkit! They've been out of the scene for so long, I mean, who cares? Who cares about Limp Bizkit?

Komodo Rock: So why does it seem that although other bands such as KORN think Fred Durst has had it, everyone suddenly seems interested in Limp Bizkit again?

Willie Adler: I don't know, I'm not interested in LIMP BIZKIT! You tell me man! Is that crowd interested?

Komodo Rock: They played Download festival and drew a big crowd. Maybe it's the nostalgia element?

Willie Adler: I guess so…. I'm the wrong guy to ask because it's not my thing. I have no fucking idea!

Komodo Rock: So you don't support it then?

Willie Adler: No! Fuck those dudes! Fuck that band, and fuck all the people who work for that fuckin' band!
