FRED DURST PLAYS DOWN HIS INJURY

The Limp Bizkit frontman describes the incident as a "very rock and roll moment"...

LIMP BIZKIT singer FRED DURST has spoken for the first time about being hit in the face with an unknown object at his band’s show in NEW YORK (November 21).

The nu-metallers were performing ‘Eat You Alive’ at the Hammerstein Ballroom when someone in the crowd threw something that hit Durst on the chin.

Posting on the band’s official website limpbizkit.com, Durst said: “Oh my gosh! Stop the press! Headlines are coming! Fred Durst has a weeeeee cut on his chin! Must have been some fan/band violence eh? Come on now. I went into the pit in NY and climbed onto a railing and was in the line of fire when an unknown object hit me in the chin. As I kept singing I felt a hot gush of something running down my neck and onto my hand. I looked down and sure enough I was bleeding like mad.”

He added: “Whatever ever it was had a very sharp edge and sliced my chin just right like a razor blade. We still had five songs left and it didn’t hurt so I kept going. It felt like a very rock and roll moment to me though. When the show was over there was no trip to the hospital as I’ve heard. We had the paramedics on site clean it up and they suggested I have stitches so it won’t scar and they suggested a tetanus shot just in case it was something gnarly.”

“So I went to dinner and later that night saw a doctor that gave me seven micro stitches. It was fast and easy. The next evening I had a tetanus shot in my arm that hurt like a motherf***er!” he said. “My arm was sore for two days! And today, November 28, I get the stitches removed here in my dressing room. Wah lah!”

Limp Bizkit had been on the road with Korn as part of the ‘Back To Basics Tour’ of North America, which wound up at Toronto’s Arrow Hall on Friday (November 28).
