THE LIMP OF BEST BIZKIT

We're contacted by Karl T to bring the forthcoming Limp Bizkit best of to our attention. Fred Durst isn't happy about it:

Although he was hardly short for words and completely candid, Durst said he was only talking because his record label was making him promote Limp's new Greatest Hitz, a compilation he's not too excited about.

"A lot of times that throws the wrong signal out there," Durst explained. "That's sometimes a cash-in time for any artist out there, and they always come out at Christmas. So I don't think any of us were ready for a greatest-hits record at this time, but it is what it is."


As Karl points out:

Er, that would be a greatest hits album released on
Interscope, would it? The Interscope that has a company director called Fred Durst? You'd think he might have had some sort of say in it, wouldn't you?


Ah, but we imagine that having insisted on the excerable "flashmob" campaign for The Unquestionable Truth, and the resulting poor sales, he may have lost any credit he had built up in the boardroom.

Even better than that.

That's right. Fred Durst covering The Verve. And Mötley Crüe. At once.
