So music is still inside you?
Sure, when I go home I pick up the guitar. I still write. I have a record label and some bands that are doing really well. I’m just a creative person . . . You know, if you want something done, give it to a busy guy. I had a great time while I was in the band. But I had to pull back. I had to purposely and mysteriously stop Limp Bizkit and spend a few years paying my dues in film and building my career from the ground. You can’t go from rock star to directing this huge movie. It’s not fair and it’s not right. You can’t start something like that. You gotta pay your dues, work it. I got offered to make huge movies with big budgets, but I said no. I have to be taken seriously. I have to take the right steps.
You must get maligned and mis-understood when you tell people you want to make movies.
Limp Bizkit has been a blessing, but it’s also been a speed bump along the road, because as a director, Limp Bizkit’s only a distraction right now. “Oh, you’re the guy from Limp Bizkit.” It’s not like, “Oh, I can’t wait to see your film.” It’s more like, “Oh, Fred Durst is directing it? I didn’t expect to see him directing.” And I’m like, “Why did you expect anything?”
