Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst

DJ Lethal & Fred Durst Squash Limp Bizkit Beef, Lethal Recalls Nitrous Filled ‘Woodstock ’99’


DJ Lethal‘s ouster from Limp Bizkit back in 2012 certainly wasn’t amicable, but it seems the beef has been put to bed. Myspace recently interviewed Lethal and asked if he and the band were on good terms again:

“I’ve been talking to Fred a lot lately, actually. I went by his house probably about a week ago, and we broke bread.

Time changes stuff, man, and you learn to figure out what’s important. Besides all the drama that happened, we’re still friends. We still go way back together, and we just put everything aside, and we hung out like nothing ever happened.”

It would certainly be an opportune time to bury the hatchet with the band should they plan any touring or shows in celebration of the 20th anniversary of their 1997 debut album, “Three Dollar Bill, Y’all$“. Meanwhile, Lethal also shared some tales of the band’s infamous ‘Woodstock ’99‘ show, which was plagued by violence, vandalism and sexual assaults in the audience. When asked to share some memories of that day, he offered:

“Shit, I’ma be real honest with you, that day was fuckin’ NUTS. We had this rock doc that used to come out on the road, he was a dentist, so he would bring a huge thing of nitrous. Backstage we had that shit set up. We had about 50 people in the backstage area just suckin’ on the nitrous. I think Dennis Rodman was back there, Carmen Electra was like going into convulsions. It was crazy.

That show was big, dude, and they tried to blame the whole riot thing on us, but they were charging like $20 for waters, and then the Chili Peppers handed out lighters.

We got blamed for just rockin’ too hard. We were their scapegoat. That’s how I feel. They tried to blame the whole shit on us. Yeah, put us on after Alanis Morissette, what do you think’s gonna happen?

(The Chili Peppers) happened the next day. (People) tried to blame us for the whole shit. Literally, Chili Peppers handed out lighters to the whole crowd.”
