Bizkit's Fred Durst addresses concert tragedy and band rumors in Web post
Posted Feb 3, 2001 at 12:00am
Following Limp Bizkit's departure from the Big Day Out Festival, frontman Fred Durst has spent a substantial amount of time online addressing the tragedy that occurred during the band's set in Sydney, Australia, as well as other media coverage of the band.

"This is Fred and I wanna thank all of you who have been and are still believers in being yourself and doing things 'your way,'" begins the most recent of three posts on www.limpbizkit.com. "I read so much horseshit in magazines and see so many bullshit reports on every source of media that I can't believe people are so adamant about dogging Limp Bizkit."

In a separate post, Durst addressed issues of band feuds. "I know there's a lot of rumors out there, so I'll clear a couple of them up. There is no beef with Limp and Korn. Me and Jonathan have been tight since day one and still are." As for Slipknot, he wrote, "We really like Slipknot and are very happy that they hate us because it makes their music heavier, angrier and real!!" Regarding Christina Aguilera: "I don't have anything to do with Christina A. She is a brat with a great butt!!"

Durst also addressed the Big Day Out Festival, during which a fifteen-year-old girl suffered a heart attack during a crowd surge and died last Monday. "We pulled out of the Big Day Out shows because a girl died at our show because of shitty security. We told the BDO security to make it better and they said to piss off. 2 shows later a girl died, a Limp fan. We'll go back to Australia on our own terms with our own security requirements so everyone can enjoy themselves."
