Limp Bizkit

limp_bizkitLimp Bizkit are an American nu metal band from Jacksonville, Florida, after Fred Durst met Sam Rivers. Rivers introduced Durst to his cousin, John Otto, a drummer in Keystone. The three got together for a jam session, and soon after started an early version of the band. The trio soon recruited guitarist Rob Waters and Limp Bizkit was established. The band achieved success with over 33 million albums sold wordwide. The band’s guitarist Wes Borland departed in 2001 following the release of their first three albums to be replaced by Mike Smith for the band’s fourth release Results May Vary.

With Borland’s absence, Limp Bizkit began a nation-wide audition for their new guitarist called Put Your Guitar Where Your Mouth Is in 2002. The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) was released as a 7-track EP internationally on May 3, 2005. Limp Bizkit’s first greatest hits compilation, titled Greatest Hitz, was released on November 8, 2005. It contained material from the band’s first four albums. Borland rejoined for The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) only to quit once again in 2006 to work with other projects. February 2009 saw the confirmation of all five members reuniting for a world tour set to launch in the Spring of that year.
