Borland quit because of Limp Bizkit “sellout”
We have yet more fall-out to report from Wes Borland’s decision to leave Limp Bizkit. (see stories… “Wes Quits Limp Bizkit” and “Borland, Durst speak out on split. Limp Bizkit plan “fan parties” to find new guitarist.”)
This week British music news magazine, New Music Express, published excerpts from their interview with Ross Robinson on nme.com where the former Limp Bizkit producer said that Wes Borland left Limp Bizkit because he no longer wanted to “sell-out”.
Robinson told NME that Borland called him soon after leaving Limp Bizkit and said that Borland is “happier than he's ever been in his entire life."
Robinson worked with the group early in their career but according to NME he “later turned his back on the rap-rock sound”.
NME asked Robinson if he knew why Borland decided to quit Limp Bizkit and he responded, “What do you think?! Everybody knows. It's the same exact thing as from the beginning. He quit before the band did the first record. He's following his heart, he's a person of integrity. He doesn't sell out for money any more."
Robinson had this to add about the future
of Limp Bizkit, “Hopefully they're all taken care of enough to not have
to worry about the future. It would be cool to see them go on and be happy
in what they are doing."
