Fred Durst

At one point or another, everyone has an encounter with a “cool guy”.  You know who I’m talking about – over the top laughter, outlandish clothing, the center of attention always… yeah, that guy.  Fred Durst was the epitome of the cool guy in the late 90’s and early 2000’s.  He and his band, Limp Bizkit, were the hottest thing in music for about a 4-year stretch, until the sheen seemed to wear off.  In fairly short order, Durst began to be the butt of jokes, Limp Bizkit went on hiatus, and it all kinda came to an end.  But was the character we all got to know as Fred Durst, really the person Fred Durst?  If he knew how to build a brand, capitalize on everything he could, knowing it wouldn’t last forever, would you still think he’s a d-bag?  Let’s rip into it with a f*n chainsaw in the Limp Bizkit episode of AHC Podcast.
