Anders Smith Lindall of the Chicago Sun-Times reviewed the Summer Sanitarium concert Saturday at the defunct Hawthorne horse track in Stickney, where Metallica fans booed Linkin Park and really booed Limp Bizkit, causing a verbal tirade from frontman Fred Durst. He writes, “The famously brainless Durst only fanned the flames, first encouraging the catcalls and flying trash, then swerving into a bizarre tirade against the crowd and city. Ranting that he’d fight anyone in earshot and spluttering explicit sexual putdowns, uncreative curses and ludicrous homophobic slurs, Durst simply self-destructed. Had the villain in ‘The Wizard of Oz’ been a vile little boob like Durst rather than a snarly old lady in greenface, the movie’s ‘I’m melting!’ scene might have looked like this. The crowd, perhaps stunned, calmed down, and Limp Bizkit played a few more songs (including a sarcastic, gay-bashing cover of George Michael’s ‘Faith’ with potty-mouth lyrics that would embarrass a fourth-grader). But then the band left the stage and Durst resumed his vulgar invective from the wings until, mercifully, he was relieved of the microphone.” Suntimes.com has since removed the article.
