DJ Lethal might have been kicked out of Limp Bizkit ahead of their forthcoming US tour, but that doesn't mean he's going to take their rejection lying down.
He's said to be retaliating by forming a brand new version of Limp Bizkit, also called Limp Bizkit, echoing last year's drama between Queensryche and their former singer Geoff Tate who went on to form a new version of the same band.
"When a band fires DJ Lethal, they lose their killer edge," said our source while striking an aggressive hip-hop pose. "The best thing about being a DJ is that he doesn't even need a band to play the songs, because he's a DJ. He just needs a stage, a mic, some record decks and maybe some food to eat while he waits for each song to finish playing on vinyl."
The original Limp Bizkit are understood not to be threatened by Lethal's alleged plan, despite clearly being foolproof.
We asked if it might be hard for Lethal to use the same band with all the confusion it will cause.
"He already have a solution to that," said our source, this time with their arms folded and tapping his toe to a hip-hop beat. "Every time he plays a sample of the name 'Limp Bizkit,' he puts that echo effect on it, like 'Limp Bizkit-it-it-it-it'. It's just the original Limp Bizkit name, but more of it. So it's better."
