    EVH and Limp Bizkit?

    I know this has been discussed on here before, but I couldn't find any threads on the topic when I searched for them.

    Did we ever get any confirmation and/or clarification on the "Ed auditioning for Limp Bizkit" rumor from a few years ago? I believe that the rumor/story was that the audition supposedly didn't go well, and Ed went back over in a drunken rage, armed with a submachine gun or some other semiautomatic weapon, which he then proceeded to actually fire off.....

    It sounds totally ridiculous in hindsight, but if I remember correctly, the story seemed to have some legitimacy to it at the time.

    Anyone?

    I remember that Ed commented on it saying he was just playing with some friends.

    I do recall some wild story like that floating around, but like you I can't remember any of the specifics.

    Someone around here will probably remember the details.

    I love Eddie but for God's sake; auditioning for Limp Bizkit! I was upset when I heard Eddie wanted to jam with Nirvana at one of their concerts and Nirvana would not let him on.

    I know. It sounds absolutely nuts, but I swear that was part of the story that was floating around. Sadly, given Ed's history with alcohol (and other rage enhancing substances) and his supposed penchant for guns, in a way it wouldn't be THAT surprising. Though the more I think about it, I believe it was referred to as a "semiautomatic weapon" and not a machine gun.

    the story is that he brought over his equipment to jam with the band at dursts place. it didnt gel very well and after a bit eddie left and said he d back later to pick up his amps and gear. apparently when ed left messages for durst asking when he could come get his stuff durst never would call back.(apparently wanting to keep eds gear to add some validity that he played with them is my guess.)

    after a week or so ed drove over to durst place late at night drunk pissed and squeezed off a few rounds with an uzi. he got his stuff right back. i think durst commented ed was a psycho or something.

    thats just what the story was i have no idea if it was true.

    Amazing that we can hear the details of a story like this involving EVH, but we can't find out why the fuck our concerts got canceled.

    About 3/4 of the way down:

    "As Durst so eloquently puts it, "What the f--- am I doing? I'm not a guitar player." But after auditioning as many as 11 guitarists, including none other than Eddie Van Halen, the frontman finds himself, along with engineer Michael "Elvis" Baskette, strumming the songs for the new record. With live shows around the corner, that has to change."

    Durst was also on Stern talking about jamming with Ed, way back when.
