Neil Diamond seems to be considered recording something with Limp Bizkit. Then again, he could be just off his face when he twitters.
According to a Twitter exchange between Diamond and Fred Durst, the possibility of Neil getting into some Nookie may be on the cards.
“I am a huge fan of yours. We should do a collaboration – Neil DIamond meets my band Limp Bizkit. Sounds fresh,” Durst twittered to Diamond.
“I’d love to, where and when?”, Diamond twittered back.
“FANTASTIC!!!!! Incredible!! What a dream come true thanks to Twitter!! I’m in LA. Follow me and we can “direct message”, Durst responded.
After that Durst posted, “That is very inspiring. I am sure he’s written more timelessness for the universe”.
Durst and Diamond recording together isn’t as far-fetched as it may sound. Diamond has been working with producer Rick Rubin for his last few albums and Rubin is a former producer of Limp Bizkit.
Limp Bizkit recently got back together and are recording. Diamond is also working on his next album.
Neil Diamond has been spending a bit of time on Twitter. Last week he said, “Heard a couple of new Paul Simon songs. Paul himself played them for me, they were among the best he’s ever written. I better get to work”.
