Durst + Diamond :: Twitter Says What?
A Match Made In Twitter Heaven.
on Fri Apr 17, 2009
On April 7, The Daily Express published a story
claiming that hard rocker Fred Durst had reached out to popular crooner Neil Diamond via everyone's favorite alternative to human interaction; you guessed it, Twitter.
It seems that long retired Limp Bizkit is returning to work and are looking to collaborate with the Jewish Elvis having been long time fans. This is either a belated April Fools joke or something so incredibly fluky that it has to be true. Even to the surprise of Durst, the Diamond Cutter responded with great haste placing his stamp of approval on this match made in Twitter heaven. Thanks to Twitter, the public was privy to their exchanges until the two decided to take their intrigues to a private network.
LB went their separate ways in 2006 after their 2005 album "The Unquestionable Truth" was regarded as a failure. Putting that behind them, the band will attempt to recapture a glory that has been somewhat elusive to them since 2000 siting "We decided we were more disgusted and bored with the state of heavy popular music than we were with each other," which is as alienating as their Twitter tryst with Neil Diamond.
Their comeback is highly anticipated but is rather bittersweet since Wes Borland will not be a part of this venture. He will be replaced by Evanescence guitarist Terry Balsamo. Can we expect a hard rock cover of Sweet Caroline? There are rumors that Diamond may make an appearance on tour with the band offering up a chance at the weirdest combination of concert attendees one might find in a long time. This gets filed under WTF until we have official confirmation.
