Former Audioslave/Rage Against The Machine bassist Tim Commerford apologized for the existence of Limp Bizkit in a new Rolling Stone interview.
“I do apologize for Limp Bizkit,” Commerford says. “I really do. I feel really bad that we inspired such bullshit.
“They’re gone, though,” the former Audioslave bassist added. “That’s the beautiful thing. There’s only one left, and that’s Rage, and as far as I’m concerned, we’re the only one that matters.” Commerford is apparently unaware that Limp Bizkit are still together, bringing the golden cobra to fans worldwide.
He also discussed crashing the stage when Limp Bizkit were at the MTV Music Video Awards in 2000.
“It’s aged like wine,” Commerford says of the incident. “What was uncomfortable and a little bit bitter in 2000, now I savor it. I get more people that come up to me now. Back in 2000, it was like, ‘Dude, I saw you do that. What was that all about?’ Now, it’s like, ‘Dude, I saw you do that. That was so fuckin’ awesome! I love that.’ It feels more comfortable now to talk about.”
Commerford also discussed the incident in an interview with Alternative Nation earlier this year.
“[Fred] was staying at the same hotel as us, so the next day everyone was telling me that Fred Durst was eating breakfast in a room. And I went in there, and I was fully gonna confront him. They show me the table and he’s nowhere to be seen. He just bolted and got out of there so he did not have to endure the wrath.”
