What happened to the biggest rock act of 2000. Limp Bizcuit (dont care who to spell it)? One year biggest band, the next the guitarist left. N hear nothin of them since. Anything happenin on this front. I dont really care for the band, just lookin at the fact they disappeared so quickly.

i think they will be on tour with metallica this summer, one of the reasons i decided not to go (that and the tickets were $70)
To improve technique and of course trying to keep all as clean as possible. I know my own limits and speed limits and so on I never play anything I'm not capable of. That wouldn't make any sense. After three years of playing I tried to play everything as fast as possible and that sounded, I would say, like shit, and I didn't realize that if I'd play bit slower things than I was capable of playing then everything would sound much better.

Limp Bizkit used to be HUGE where i lived but now nobody even remembers them. those who do hate them. like me. it's a weird turnaround. it's cool to look back it too. watching bands rise and fall over the years.
Thanks for listening to this small piece of me.

Yeah well the going rate is 105 for gigs here, which is about 70 to you. I got my Oasis tickets for 55 which is very good value, especially as it was a small venue.

If I understand correctly, Durst is playing guitar now. From what I hear, it's like an even more generic version of what they were doing before, but I haven't actually heard any of it, so I really don't know. What I do know for certain is that he makes sure to write another repedative tirade about the "Haters" every other month or so, and that they're incredibly funny to read in a very sad sort of way.
