Maybe everyone has seen the greatest hits set now and just simply doesn't care.

It seems Dmitri and Boris didn't want to be taken to the Russky Bridge.

Then why book a huge arena, Jelger? Their booking agent has serious issues if he thinks LB can sell out arenas in all of Russia.

 

Oh, completely agree. And it looks pathetic.

Sorry for my bad English, but the agent Limp Bizkit, urgently needs to stick in the mind of Fred, who want to maintain the same cache or increase it, need to invest more in marketing the band.

This band definitely stopped self-promotion in 2003. They do not talk with fans.

 

Sam is in serious trouble in the column and probably never come back to play and that they do not speak. I think not to lose more tickets.

 

Wes is just that cuz pays the bills and Fred 'cause he is the owner of the business.

 

And now we have The Franko and Samuel L as freelancers.

I love this band, but this is wrong.

What does it mean Sam is in serious trouble in the column?

Maybe it's just a random assumption on his part. Or maybe he's really in the know about this. He comes from the Limp Bizkit Brasil FB page,which apparently is the new source of info Fred will leak info and stuff to. Started by Marcelo.

How about the band telling OFFICIALLY why the fuck band members get replaced like underwear. This is ridicilous. Even knowing this was never their strength (Mike Smith, Wes, Lethal, Sam)

I'm actually glad that the first concert of the Russian tour flopped hard. This band doesn't deserve any respect from fans or anyone else.

 

Why the fuck would they hire an amateur bass player to replace Sam, in over 20 shows, and they think fans don't deserve a proper explanation of the reasons behind that?

I would certainly be pissed off if I paid 40-50 euros to see LB and then I just get some random bass or guitar player instead of the original members. The least these washed up divas could do is to show some fucking respect to the people that pay their salary but don't even do that. How hard would it be to release a official statement explaining what's happening behind the scenes? For fuck's sake.

It's getting pretty bad.  I'm at the point where it's difficult to actually stay too up to date with what's going on, cause it's all just pretty depressing.

Again I apologize for the bad English!

Sam has a problem in his spine. He made some tests with a doctor in Budapest and was released from the Tour.

The problem is that there is no one officially say that. What is a whore lack of respect for the fans.

Out of respect for the source, I will keep secret. But I would like to share it with you here on the forum.

By not getting this album out and not keeping the fans updated, the band has destroyed all momentum. It doesn't feel like you are seeing a real band without progression and new music.

This is a sad state of affairs from where we were a few years back.

Sometimes some self imposed time lines have to be applied...LB cannot survive in this dull state of limbo.

It's really just sad.  Fred is truly the master of self-sabotage.

I agree I think the responsibility has to lay with Fred on this one. With no pressure to get things done he seems to have just slipped into a funk with this whole process.

I know amateur bands that my friends are in that do a better job with promotion and social media. It's so difficult to understand.

Also Wes seems to be rolling out the same costume every show now. This is a very different atmosphere to 2/3 years ago. Seems a lot of positivity has been sapped.

I feel like this "creative identity crisis" has happened on pretty much every album post-Sig. Other.  The only difference is this is the first time there's no pressure of a label whatsoever. 

 

It's just sad that Fred fails to realize there's a certain shelf life for this stuff.  You can't hype an album 4 years and expect people to still give a shit, including yourself.  Not to mention it's just totally inorganic and it robs the album of a chance to authentically capture a moment in time. 

 

That's the thing too.  Gold Cobra, say what you will, but it did capture a moment in time- the fun, celebatory vibe when the reunion first started.  It's the soundtrack to that.  What exactly would SOTDE be capturing (hypothetically)?  The Cash Money era could've been something, but that ended.  Now everyone in the band seems to be fairly "settled in" at best, uterly bored and over it at worst.  What's left to capture there?  Fred seems so obsessed with the vocals being 'authentic', but really is it even possible for the music to sound authentic if the band members are being worn down by called in over and over again to re-record stuff that never sees the light of day?  You only get that feel when you have the band riding the same creative wave together. 

 

Sad sad sad.  Sometimes I honestly wish they did get Ross to produce again.  He would be vehemently against all this second-guessing bullshit.  Though in the end he'd probably just butt heads with Fred and that would be that.  I pretty much see no scenario in which this album gets released with them as an unsigned band.  Fred cannot be the only one with authority in the situation.

 

It's past the point of even caring, I'm literally just embarrassed for them.

So wait, am I to understand that Sam's back issue is so serious he may not play with LB anymore!?
