Again, fairly self explanatory. Not sure if all polls have to go in the poll zone now though so by all means move it if that's the case.

Lol at "Very important, essentially another instrument."
 
No, just no.

Do you consider changing "Skelewhore" thing?

These guys are reading TAP forum, Franco did nothing bad for stepping for Lethal behind the MPC and decks and yet he comes to this forum and realises TAP people are nothing else than typical internet haters.

I love Lethal too but there's a reason he's out.

He's the icing, can be important ie RMV, but sometimes minimal ie GC.

But he usually adds something to the songs.

Okay, my honest opinion is that Lethal made a lot of LB's songs more unique. Whether or not that uniqueness is liked by people, that's subjective. However, songs like Re-Arranged and Faith do have something in them that other songs don't, so I see Lethal as an important member for that reason and for that fact that he's part of the original lineup, which should be sacred in any band.

 

But, can LB make albums without him? Absolutely. He's not quite 'another instrument,' the icing on the cake certainly sums up his role. So yes, he's good in LB but not essential.

 

Oh and turntables aren't an instrument. Calling turntables an instrument is like calling a small bagel a proper meal.

Do you consider sucking my dick?

 

 

Edit: Oh and Reprise, you laugh at that, but that's the option with the most votes. So yeah.

The DJ is what made Limp Bizkit different from the others. Also many songs have his handwriting, which aren't that obvious, but if it would be removed, the difference would be much worse.

 

I want him back as soon as possible as our current DJ is out of his league. Don't know if we can call him DJ at all

Doesn't matter if Lethal''s presence was a part of Limp Bizkit. What he did can easily be replaced. Far more easily than replacing Fred or Wes' style.

I agree he's easier to replace than Fred and Wes, but Skeletor's samples aren't as good as Lethals.

Who really gives a shit though? I care more about the shitty covers and saturation of Chocolate Starfish/Greatest Hits material on the setlist.

 

But seriously, Ready To Go. Great song full of electronics/synths/samples whatever. None done by Lethal...

Thanks for changing that poll description anyway.

 

Would like to hear one song with other voc. than Fred's and some other bass player, while we've already heard Bizkit without Wes, John and Lethal

Wes said he's not important. So I doubt he's important.

And to be fair, Wes has already been replaced on an album.

And if that album proved anything, it's Wes isn't easily replaced...

I love Lethal, he did a great job and Limp Bizkit ows him a lot. Who knows if they would've become that successful with a the DJ from HOP.

I went with "icing on the cake though" which he definatly is, and I'd feel a lot more comfortable with my choice if Cam had left out the "just."

His contributions were often pretty discreet, (except for the Hiphop songs and maybe Nookie and Shotgun) but they would have turned out completely different if Lethal hadn't done his job so well. So I definatly miss Lehtal, I like Franko, he does a good job, and I'm as fine as I possibly could be since they all, especially Lee quitted the hating, I hope he's coming back, I couldn't think about someone that fits in the band as good as he did.

Turntables may not be 'another instrument' technically, but Lee is 'very important, essential' nonetheless. Any videos we saw of the guys in the studio, Lee was always making beats with John, messing around with Wes' riffs and was working on sounds to highlight the melody and Fred's vocals. He is passionate and committed. LB has four very characteristic musicians, they need Lee to be the glue, the gravity that holds everything together. Without him LB could become another rap metal group (even if they manage to emulate what he does). I also believe in the sanctity of the original line-up, like Alex, but he is much more. He kept in touch with Wes while he wasn't in the band, he was there for the fans when the rest of the guys weren't, he was their mentor in the early days. He may not be the idol I once thought he was, but he is a great guy all in all and I respect anything he did in and for LB. I hope they can work out things in the near future.

Also, Franko seems to be an okay guy (though I sigh at most things he posts on fb and Twitter) but Lethal is undeniably better live.
