Fred Durst: 'I don’t need US success'

Fred Durst is disappointed that American music is about "the new catchy thing".

The Limp Bizkit star hasn't played any shows in his home country for a number of years. Fred has revealed it's because he's become disillusioned by the want from popular chart music.

"We don't play back home. We've boycotted America for many years now. I don't know, I just don't wanna go out like that. We did a few radio shows in 2010 for a friend and that was it. We haven't properly toured America since 2006. The reason? We just don't know what's going on in America. It's all about the new catchy thing and that's always changing," he told Kerrang! magazine.

"America is driven by record sales. It's the home of corporations. We're just Limp Bizkit, so we don't know how to do anything but Limp Bizkit."

Fred is under no illusion that Limp Bizkit's appeal has weakened in the country.

"But here's the deal: say in 2000, there were 35 million people who connected to this band. Twelve years later, lots of those people have moved on. We were a moment in time and it's over," he said.
