    Default EVH put a gun to Fred Durst's head?!?

    I think the best VH story of the month search has ended today. Mind you, no one knows if it's true considering the source, but read it and you're in for a good laugh!

    https://ultimateclassicrock.com/eddi...en-fred-durst/

    The incident with Durst allegedly took place after guitarist Wes Borland had quit Limp Bizkit and the band held auditions to find a replacement. Durst and Eddie Van Halen were introduced at a party where a record-label executive suggested they work together. Bennett said Durst responded, “That would be hilarious. The greatest guitar player ever plays with the worst band ever.” But Van Halen responded with, “Fuck it, let’s jam.”

    The session went ahead at a house in Beverly Hills, but Van Halen, who’s not a fan of weed, left abruptly after people began smoking it, leaving guitars, amps and other equipment behind. Bennett said afterward the guitarist described the jam as “like being a scholar amongst kindergartners.”

    The following day, Van Halen contacted Durst to recover his gear, according to Bennett.The guitarist was still upset about the experience, and after not hearing back from Durst after 24 hours, he decided to take matters into his own hands.

    “Eddie once bought an assault vehicle from a military auction,” Bennett writes. “It has a shine gun mount on the back and is not legal. Eddie drove that assault vehicle through L.A., into Beverly Hills, then parked and left it running on the front lawn of the house Limp Bizkit was rehearsing in. He got out wearing no shirt, his hair in a Samurai bun on top of his head, his jeans held up with a strand of rope and combat boots held together by duct tape. And he had a gun in his hand.”

    “That asshole answered the door," Bennett recalled Van Halen explaining. "I put my gun to that stupid fucking red hat of his, and I said, ‘Where’s my shit, motherfucker?’ That fucking guy just turned to one of his employees and starts yelling at him to grab my shit. ... Eddie Van Halen stood on the front lawn of a residential home in Beverly Hills in broad daylight, smoking a cigarette while holding a gun on Fred Durst as he went back and forth from the house to the assault vehicle, lugging amps and guitars.”

    Bennett said the Van Halen-Limp Bizkit summit remains a head-scratcher to this day: “Katy Perry could join Slipknot and I would be less shocked.”

    Seems like we would have heard about that already if it really happened. It's a nice thought though!

    I've heard this story prior to reading Andrew's book but not in the same detail. I don't see what motivation Bennett has is to lie about it though. Maybe Eddie lied to him about it, but I don't doubt Bennett.

    That being said, he is as close to enemy number one as anybody ever has been here, so I doubt many will believe him.

    I've heard of this story a few times over the years, but there's certainly more detail here.

    This is plausible in my opinion.

    That would be an odd and completely random thing to just make up. Ed was a complete lunatic at that time. I don’t doubt it happened (or anything else in that book). I know Andrew’s book is ‘persona non grata’ on these boards, but it’s a fascinating read.

    Ed isn't a fan of weed? I must have missed that one over the years. VH shows in the early days definitely had a weed smell wafting around. Probably only topped by Rush concerts back then.

    Pretty sure booze & coke were Ed’s vices.

    Maybe I’m high? I thought he was prohibited from selling that book? Really, what’s the purpose of asking the court for an injunction if he continues to sell the book?

    Heard different versions of that story many times.

    Ed was simply out of his mind at that point in his life.

    That story is just full of priceless nuggets:

    Durst: "It would be the greatest guitarist ever playing with the worse band ever"

    EVH: "I felt like a scholar in the middle of kindergartners"

    "I put my gun to that stupid fucking red hat of his"

    As an aside, I once randomly met Fred at a guitar center, and he seemed like an ok guy in "real life." He didn't have the attitude he's known for.
