The back and forth between Creed and Limp Bizkit continues as Limp frontman Fred Durst has once again sounded off after Creed called the singer's behavior at a recent concert "immature and egotistical."
As we previously reported, Limp took the stage at Friday's KROCK Dysfunctional Family Picnic outside of New York late, and then proceeded to call Creed singer Scott Stapp an "egomaniac" and "a f***ing punk" (see "Limp, Creed Trade Barbs At KROCK Show").
Durst slammed the singer further during a visit to MTV's "Total Request Live" on Monday, and Creed then responded on Tuesday charging that "Fred is manipulating the media and the truth by using Creed as a scapegoat for his own immature and egotistical actions." Specifically, the band claimed that Durst was disappointed with his band's placement on the KROCK bill, and as a result he and the band refused to go on stage on time (see "Creed
Responds To Limp Bizkit Comments").
Now Durst has shot back in a statement that hardly backs off of his initial comments about Stapp. "What I said about Creed I meant," Durst reiterated in a statement issued late Tuesday. "The starting time of our New York show had nothing to do with my comments. I bet some fans who have tried to meet them would agree [with me]. I don't ever care about what other people in the business say. Our fans know what we're about and that's all that matters to me."
As for the show that started it all, MTV2 will air full coverage of the Dysfunctional Family Picnic during the weekend of July 8.
