Original Story:

Staind frontman Aaron Lewis has responded to Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland‘s criticisms against him. Appearing on the ‘Talk Toomey Podcast‘ last December, Borland went on to tell the following tale of a meeting with Lewis that left a foul taste in his mouth:

Aaron Lewis also came up to me in an airport randomly, I happened to be going back… I was visiting my parents in Jacksonville, and flying back to L.A.. And he’s like ‘Where ya headed?’, I just happened to run into him and hadn’t seen him in awhile.

He goes ‘Where ya headed?’ And I went ‘I’m going home.’ And he goes ‘Home?” and I went ‘Yeah I just visited my parents, I’m going back home to L.A.’. And for the record I’ve lived in L.A. longer than any other city in my life. He goes… Aaron looks at me and he kind of turns his chin up and goes ‘Nah man, remember where you came from, Florida is your home, not L.A.. That’s home.”

And I just went ‘Fuck you man.’ And I never talked to him again after that.”

He continued:

“That guy is such a dickhead. So full of himself, such a dickhead, I wish nothing but the worst for him. Amen. I could not believe the audacity, and just like pretentiousness—especially for someone that acts like they’re like a country boy now and they’re from Illinois. Anyway, digusting person. No thanks, peace.”

…I don’t want be a shit talker. But I have no problem talking shit about that guy, he’s terrible.”

Appearing at a live concert this past Saturday, April 14th, in Las Vegas, NV, Lewis tore into Borland while onstage. While introducing the Staind song “Outside“, Lewis vented:

“I’m gonna sing this little ditty. I laid it down back in 1999. I don’t remember, but I do know that I walked into the dressing room of Limp Bizkit.

Wes Borland, who I love dearly, who obviously has some fucking things to say about me. Fuck that motherfucker! I know that I started this with ‘I love him dearly,’ because he’s part of the whole reason that I’m standing here right now in front of you. And I find it really fucked up that…

This is what happened, okay? This is how it happened. This is exactly how it happened. And I don’t know how the fuck he came up with what he came up with. But I’m gonna tell you what happened.

I saw this motherfucking bougie motherfucker riding on a fucking golf cart in an airport to his gate. I ended up at a gate really close to him. I went up to him. I said, ‘Wes, what’s up, brother? I miss you. I haven’t seen you in forever. How have you been?’ Good,’ this, that and the other thing. I’m, like, ‘Where are you headed?’ He’s, like, ‘I’m headed home — to Los Angeles.’ And I’m, like, ‘Hey, motherfucker, that ain’t home. Remember — you’re from Jacksonville, fucking Florida.’ That’s how it went down.

Have you seen the interview? Have you heard the podcast? That’s how it went down.

Brother, don’t forget where the fuck you’re from. You’re from Jacksonville, Florida. You’re not from Los Angeles, fucking California. You’re from Jacksonville. You’re a real person. You’re not the plastic, fucked-up people that live in fucking Los Angeles.’

“And for that — for that — for reminding my brother, one of the people that are responsible for me standing in front of you this evening, reminding my fucking brother where the fuck he’s from… And now I’m the biggest piece of shit to ever fucking walk the face of the earth. So, you know what? Wes Borland, you bougie motherfucker, I give all the credit to this next song to Fred [Durst.] Fuck you.”

Staind owe much of their early fame to be discovered by Limp Bizkit‘s Fred Durst, signing them to Flip Records back in early 1998.
