Aaron Lewis of STAIND has fired back at Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland. He said:
“I’m gonna sing this little ditty. I laid it down back in 1999. I don’t remember, but I do know that I walked into the dressing room of LIMP BIZKIT.
“Wes Borland, who I love dearly, who obviously has some fucking things to say about me. Fuck that motherfucker! I know that I started this with ‘I love him dearly,’ because he’s part of the whole reason that I’m standing here right now in front of you,” apparently referring to the fact that STAIND was actually “discovered” by Durst and was signed to his Flip label imprint two decades ago. “And I find it really fucked up that…
“This is what happened, okay? This is how it happened. This is exactly how it happened. And I don’t know how the fuck he came up with what he came up with. But I’m gonna tell you what happened.
“I saw this motherfucking bougie motherfucker riding on a fucking golf cart in an airport to his gate. I ended up at a gate really close to him. I went up to him. I said, ‘Wes, what’s up, brother? I miss you. I haven’t seen you in forever. How have you been?’ Good,’ this, that and the other thing. I’m, like, ‘Where are you headed?’ He’s, like, ‘I’m headed home — to Los Angeles.’ And I’m, like, ‘Hey, motherfucker, that ain’t home. Remember — you’re from Jacksonville, fucking Florida.’ That’s how it went down.”
Aaron continued: “Have you seen the interview? Have you heard the podcast? That’s how it went down.
“‘Brother, don’t forget where the fuck you’re from. You’re from Jacksonville, Florida. You’re not from Los Angeles, fucking California. You’re from Jacksonville. You’re a real person. You’re not the plastic, fucked-up people that live in fucking Los Angeles.’
“And for that — for that — for reminding my brother, one of the people that are responsible for me standing in front of you this evening, reminding my fucking brother where the fuck he’s from… And now I’m the biggest piece of shit to ever fucking walk the face of the earth,” Lewis added. “So, you know what? Wes Borland, you bougie motherfucker, I give all the credit to this next song to Fred. Fuck you.”
