Wes Borland Recalls Maynard James Keenan Comparing Tool To Limp Bizkit
During his appearance in Drinks With Johnny, hosted by Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ, Wes Borland talked about the article he read a while ago, in which Maynard James Keenan compared Tool with Limp Bizkit.
It is known that Limp Bizkit was working on the release of their sixth studio album for a long time, having written 35 new songs already without vocal records. The band is known to have tried seven times to record the songs, but Fred Durst’s perfectionism made it harder for them to complete the album as he has thrown away his vocals every time. Apart from working on their new album titled ‘Stampede Of The Disco Elephants,’ Limp Bizkit will perform on a short US club tour with support from Spiritbox this summer, and return to the UK for two shows in July 2022.
In a conversation with Johnny Christ, Wes Borland talked about the new album’s progress and the band’s upcoming tour plans. He also shared some interesting stories of his professional career and personal life. Talking about his bad experiences during his time with Limp Bizkit, Borland recalled the time when a girl was crushed during one of their shows and died later on, and the time when they headed to make a new record and 9/11 happened.
Borland then said he read an article where Tool’s Maynard James Keenan completely shitcanned Limp Bizkit with an unusual analogy. Wes stated that Keenan compared them to McDonald’s by saying ‘Tool is like fine dining but Bizkit is like McDonald’s.’
“I just was trying to evaluate my life, and I also read an article where Maynard James Keenan from Tool just completely shitcanned us in this article and compared us to McDonald’s. He said like – Tool is like fine dining, Bizkit is like McDonald’s, basically.
Although Limp Bizkit’s upcoming album’s title was announced back in 2012 and the band shared the single ‘Endless Slaughter’ taken from the album in 2014, it seems the fans will have to wait a little longer for the record to be completed as an estimated date for the release is not announced yet.
