Limp Bizkit guitarist Wes Borland says he doesn’t need material reminders of his career as he compares clearing out old instruments and memorabilia with ‘bad haircuts’ from college.
Borland has revealed he is auctioning off a host of items including sales plaques for the band’s hit records as well as old guitars.
Proceeds from the auction will be donated to a local cat rescue organisation.
He says: "Limp Bizkit isn't over – nor does me selling a bunch of stuff that's taking up space have anything to do with my feelings about the band. I don't like gold records. I think they look tacky and I don't need them to remind me of what I've done.
"I don't need a bunch of old guitars either that don't get played. This is the equivalent of selling bad haircuts that you had when you were in high school.
"It's fucking awesome to give people that want this stuff the chance to have it instead of it going into the Hard Rock in Warsaw or wherever."
Among the items Borland is offering on his own eBay account are The Limp Bizkit guitarist is selling old guitars, sales plaques for albums such as ‘Significant Other’, ‘Take A Look Around’, ‘Chocolate Starfish And The Hot Dog Flavored Water’ and ‘$3 Bill Ya’ll$.’
