Aussie Police To Question Limp Bizkit Over Fan Death

Band and management to be interviewed about death of girl at Sydney concert in January.

Limp Bizkit are being interviewed this week, but not by the press frontman Fred Durst has sworn off in his recent Web site postings.

Australian police are in the U.S. to question the band and their management about the death of the 15-year-old girl who was crushed at a Sydney concert in January, according to Reuters.

A police spokesperson told the news organization on Thursday (July 19) that two officers flew to Los Angeles as part of a coroner's investigation into the death of Jessica Michalik, who suffered a heart attack in the mosh pit at Sydney's annual Big Day Out festival (see "Teen Who Had Heart Attack In Limp Bizkit Pit Dies").

Limp Bizkit pulled out of their headlining slot for the remaining Big Day Out shows in Australia after the melee in Sydney, and accused the promoters of ignoring the band's safety concerns (see "Limp Bizkit Exit Big Day Out Because Of Fan Injuries").
