Lead singer of Limp Bizkit, Fred Durst, is rocking a new look and fans are shocked. Earlier this week, Durst debuted a fresh salt and pepper hairstyle along with a new handlebar mustache.
He debuted the new look, which was very much reminiscent of Kenny Rogers while performing at Metro in Chicago for the band’s Lollapalooza performance on Friday. For fans who are used to seeing Durst in JNCO jeans and a backward hat, it was a bit of an odd sight, but the singer still gave it his all while performing.
Durst has not always been active on social media, but he recently deleted all of his Instagram posts and uploaded just one selfie showing off his new silver-fox hair. His followers can see him with a grey mustache and messy hair, which looks somewhat like a wig. In a caption on the post, Durst wrote, “thinking about you 70,” and added an alien spaceship emoji.
He then published a second selfie before his performance at Lollapalooza. In the post, he looks the same, while some people in the background could be seen wearing Limp Bizkit t-shirts. In the second post, Durst captioned his photo with “dad vibes.”
Many of his fans took to the comments section, with one person joking that he looks like he’s going “for the Don Johnson look.”
Limp Bizkit Bandmember Weighs in on Upcoming Album
During a recent episode of Drinks With Johnny, hosted by Avenged Sevenfold bassist Johnny Christ, the band’s guitarist Wes Borland opened up about the band’s highly-anticipated new album titled Stampede Of The Disco Elephants.
“We’ve probably, in the last ten years, been in the studio to try and complete the record. I wanna say, seven times, to different studios,” Borland said.
“And we’ve been working on stuff, working on stuff, working on stuff. And Fred has been consistently kind of unsatisfied with where vision is, I guess. So we’ve released singles. Like we did ‘Ready To Go,’ and we did another single called ‘Endless Slaughter’ that we put out… We probably have 35 songs recorded instrumentally, and he’s done vocals on them and then thrown the vocals away — done vocals and then [gone], ‘F— this,’ [and] thrown it away.”
He added: “So I think he’s finally at the point now where he’s gonna pick a set of these songs that he’s finally cool with and finish ’em and we’re gonna finish the record. So, fingers crossed.”
According to Borland, as far as an exact release date for the new album, fans shouldn’t hold their breath.
“I’m not in charge of Fred’s vocals, I’m way done with my parts on the record,” Borland said. “I’m sure I’ll go back in and play a little bit more after.
