Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit has been writing up his collaboration with Bono for his 'rock' version of What's Going On.
Writing on limp-bizkit.com, Durst describes how Bono called him up from France and played his vocals down the line. Fred was delighted, judging by his diary - an extract of which we carry below.
'well here i am in the studio working on the new school rock version of "what's going on"... Bono did his vocals this morning from France over the internet and its sounds un fucking believable!! that man is a living legend. he has really tapped into the pulse of the world. its crazy for me to get calls at my home from 'bono from U2'. its like, "hello.....'hello fred, its bono'..(holy shit) 'hey bono, did you like the track?'....'its so real!! i hope you like what i did in the bridge'....(he hopes i like what he did?)'i'm sure it's off the hook'..(he then plays me his vocals over the phone)..'oh my God bono, its absolutely perfect'. and that it was!!....
