Limp Bizkit is currently working on the follow-up to 1997's "Three Dollar Bill, Y'All," and they're getting help from at least one surprising source.
Bizkit frontman Fred Durst has enlisted the help of Stone Temple Pilots singer Scott Weiland as a sort of vocal coach on the album, and Durst told our colleagues in the MTV Radio Network that Weiland may even be heard on the album when it arrives next year.
"I can probably bet on that one," Durst said of the likelihood that Weiland will appear on the album. "You know, he's more there to help us. He's really good at melodies and melodic senses if you've seen his hit record, now I mean 'record' as in like how many singles he's put out. He did go off on his own tangent for a while and he had a couple of problems, but his musical sense is great you know... The best singers in the world, whether you like them or not, have had vocal coaches and I'd
rather have one that's someone that I really loved and bought his records myself instead of some fat little gay guy." [28.8 RealAudio]
Durst also said that the band hopes to return to the Family Values tour again next year, perhaps in a headlining capacity.
Limp Bizkit hopes to have its sophomore album in stores by April of 1999.
