The Tongue Of Borland Pt.2

Former Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland has sent a statement regarding his recent departure from Limp Bizkit and his future plans to www.limpbizkitfan.com, it is as follows:
"All I'm going to say is this: If you liked what I did in Limp Bizkit and you think you can see where I wanted to go with the music, then I think you will be happy with my new band. Ross Robinson is on board for the record and it's going to be great. The new band is Me, my brother Scott Borland, Kyle Weeks, and Greg Isabelle. I didn't abandon you guys, I am making a record for myself and for you that is true, and feels good. It is not going to be like Big dumb Face. BDF was a joke, and a side project. Everyone took it too seriously. Well, we're about to give you a serious record, so look out for it, I hope we will have it out by the middle of next year, and we will be on tour for a long time after that, getting back into the small clubs, so that we can be close and hang out again. I hope that many of you will be able to open your hearts to something new.
Meanwhile, in a statement of Limp Bizkit's official website, www.limpbizkit.com, band frontman Fred Durst has addressed the parting of ways and the future of the band, saying:
"Allright, enough already. You know Wes has decided to leave Limp Bizkit and I know you're wondering whats gonna happen from here. Well, the first thing thats gonna happen is were going to comb the globe in search of the illist guitar player known to man. Then were gonna take this illist guitar player known to man and were gonna finish writing the sickest new undeniable Limp Bizkit record you could ever imagine.. Wes was a big part of the Limp Bizkit you're used to but his decision to leave has left us in a place where we know the best of Limp Bizkit is yet to come. Lethal, John, Sam and I are gonna take this as an opportunity to take our song writing to a whole new level. At the end of the day its all about the music and the music is all were about. Life is unpredictable and though were shocked, were not discouraged. As the world turns, so does Limp Bizkit. Thank you so much for sticking with us through thick and thin. Weve never let you down and were not gonna start now. Keep the faith and join us on this journey to the next level."

The LOUD Rage Page...

The following are the e-mails sent into the LOUD show that i found amusing...

First thing you guys need help bad, you need to get rid of the that camera man that shoots George. He can not stand still or keep the camera straight up and down. It is extremely FREAKING ANNOYING. Stand still and stand up straight, your mom should of teached you that when you where a kid. If the camera is to heavy for you put the damn thing on a tripod for crying out LOUD!!!!!!!
- Keith G, North Carolina

I noticed that. I thought it was kinda a cool effect or somethign but i guess this person doesn't like it. On MTV2 the camera is in one place the whole time and never moves. If they want to show the cover of an a bands new album they have to walk up to the camera. Its kinda odd and cool all at the same time.

I think Loud is great, there is a very good variety but I think there should be more of Loud than just every Saturday. Da Mix is on like everyday and so is Rap City so would you guys be able to even it out a bit with a little bit more Loud cause I am one of those people who are lookin forward to watchin some good videos on Loud like Slayer, Pantera and some System Of A Down.
Well my suggestion probably isn't gonna get read or probably won't even matter or get listened to but I thought what the hell give it a try.
- Brandon

I agree and i have had this conversation about rap having a show on every night with many people. (lj user=witchmooon>, pyro, and dramen just to name a few) But i don't think Loud will ever be weekly.. that woud just be too wicked!

You can read all of the 'rage page' e-mails at http://muchmusic.com/loud/ragepage/ and you can tell LOUD what you think of the show at loud@muchmusic.com.

Keep it loud!

Poor Much Music!

I just watched "In the End" by Linkin Park on Much Music.
At the end of the video it said, "In the Park" by Linkin Park.
Is that sad or what? They don't even know what the names of the videos they show!
