    I don't know if you guys heard the news...but Wes Borland is officially back with Limp Bizkit after a bitter end about three years ago...

    The pictures confirm it, go to Limp Bizkit's offical website.
    Wes Is Back

    I don't know what to feel except shock. This could be very good and this could be very bad. It goes back to the reason why Wes decided to come back...which none of us have any idea....

    I feel like spitting on the people who got their panties in a bunch when I reported this a few weeks ago.

    THE PRP DOES NOT REPORT FALSE NEWS. IF THEY HAVE RUMORS, THEY SAY THAT IT IS A RUMOR!

    *slaps people*

    :lol:

    Yup and long, long before The PRP, Blabbermouth, or LPA- The Armpit were digging down to the bottom of things, mostly due to a certain member's connection to Fred...but you see, even with all the evidence The Armpit forum was pulling up, I STILL found it hard to stomache.

    Wes Borland is an exceptionally awesome guitarist but I can't help but remember all the times he slandered Limp Bizkit and said that "Nothing could EVER get him to go back".

    It makes me wonder- why DID he return?? Contract? Money? Lack of Success...or maybe it's what I hope...maybe the fire returned and he wanted to go back to Bizkit and make music.

    Either way, I can't wait to hear what comes out of this recent reunion. The new album will be interesting, that's for sure!

    So is this for better or for worse? Don't get me wrong because I love Wes...but you know Mike was darn good too...we'll have to wait and see I suppose.

    PS- Will is right. The Prp won't post something unless they have a trustworthy source.

    I think he returned because he was a complete flop without limpbizkit :lol:



    [EDIT:] What the f*ck is happening to Mike? Can you imagine the conversation Fred had with him if he got kicked...


    Fred: Well, erm, it was nice to meet you but we were just using you as a temp replacement... So now you can like, f*ck off...
    Mike: Erm... :huh:

    Actually the contract thing has not been confirmed in any way. It stands as only a slight rumor right now, we have still yet to find out the true reason Wes has returned.

    But who knows, when they confirm it - you may be right.

    Got anything to back that up? Or is that a wild accusation?

    I for one don't think Wes was that good. Still, it was a smart move, adding a good deal more brain cells to the one they had shared between them.

    Wes has talked alot of #### about Fred & LB.

    It's either they're finally going the way Wes wants (Heavy) or Interscope/Flawless/Fred waved some insane 6 figures infront of Wes's face.

    Wes isn't using a 7-string guitar in those pics, so chances are the new album won't be very nu-metal. That's one theory as to why Wes has came back.

    Wes is either too intelligent to sell out or intelligent enough to realise he can make some serious cash here, so I take back my previous comment.

    I think it's the latter.

    He knows he can make some serious dough in LB, and have a better career than what he was having when he left.

    I've gotta say, I'm glad he's back in LB, but a part of me has lost alot of respect for Wes, for going back on his word of 'never joining LB again'.

    My feelings exactly...But, Im pissed at Fred for just kicking Mike out of the band. Wen he first joined LB Fred was saying how great he was and how he didnt want Wes back.

    That's Fred Durst for you. The man can't make his mind up half the time.

    I think at the time of Mike's hiring, Fred thought it was a good idea to hire him, and probably didn't have enough money or something to persuade Wes to come back, so he stuck it out with Mike and whatnot.

    But you know how it is. If you can't someone better (IMO) to (re)join the band, you're gonna do. I think they just gained some older fans back, and some new ones.

    Good call, in my opinion. I'll most likely buy the next LB record now. I just hope to god that Wes doesn't dress up in silly #### anymore. That always overshadowed his talent.

    I'm glad he's back since he was the main reason why I used to like limpbizkit before. That whole stage thing he does though..I think it's cool. He probably makes the most moves on stage out of any other guitar player I've seen and can still play well.
