Wes Borland Slams Staind's Aaron Lewis
Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland is still no fan of Staind frontman Aaron Lewis following an encounter at a Florida airport years ago.
Borland, who’s also in Black Light Burns and Bigdumbface, said he was waiting for a flight to Los Angeles after visiting family in Jacksonville, Florida, when Lewis approached him.
“And he's like, 'Where are you headed?’” Borland recalled to Joshua Toomey on Talk Toomey: The Metal Nexus Podcast. “‘I’m going home.' And he goes, 'Home?' I went, 'Yeah, I just visited my parents I'm going back to L.A.’
“For the record, I've lived in L.A. longer than I've lived in any other city in my life.”
Borland continued: “Aaron looks at me and he kind of turns his chin up and he goes, ‘Nah, man. Remember where you came from. Florida's your home; not L.A. That’s home.’”
“I just went, ‘f**k you, man!" Borland recalled. “And I never talked to him again after that.”
Borland said this happened while Staind was still active and before Lewis began his solo career as a country artist.
“That guy is such a d**k head. So full of himself, such a d**k head. I wish nothing but the worst for him. Amen.
“I could not believe the audacity and pretentiousness. Especially from somebody who acts like they're a country boy now, and they're from [New England].”
