Shocked Limp Bizkit fans liken 90s rapper Fred Durst, 50, to Richard Gere, 71

LIMP Bizket fans have been left open-mouthed after lead singer Fred Durst was pictured looking more like Richard Gere than a 90s megastar rapper.

Fred, 50, has uploaded a new picture to Instagram – a selfie – and is unrecognizable from his edgy Rollin’ heyday.

The musician is sporting an impressive head of gray hair, just like that of 71-year-old Pretty Woman star Gere.

He also has a handlebar mustache and posed for his snap in a freshly pressed beige shirt with white T-shirt underneath.

Fred was best known for wearing baggy clothes and an iconic red backwards cap during the height of the band’s fame.

As a result, Limp Bizket fans cannot believe their eyes and have been commenting on Fred’s new photograph in their droves.

‘FEELING OLD’

One wrote: “S***, thought Richard Gere popped up from outta nowhere.”

Another said: “This guy needs a station wagon ASAP.”

A third mused: “Seriously, it also reminds me how old I am now.” Echoing this, another added: “This actually hurts my soul.”

Along with Richard Gere, other fans have compared Fred to a list of ageing music stars.

“Anyone else see a little bit of a Bon Jovi resemblance?” one asked. Another suggested: “I was thinking Keifer Sutherland. 😂😂.”

One even wrote: “I thought it was David spade for a second 😂😂.”

LIMP BISKET’S RISE AND FALL

Fred and his bandmates – Wes Borland, Sam Rivers, John Otto and DJ Lethal – formed Limp Bizket in 1994.

However, the group, from Jacksonville, Florida, did not hit the mainstream music scene until 1999 when they released their second album, Significant Other.

The band’s follow-up album, Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog Flavored Water, debuted at No1 on the Billboard 200, selling 1,054,511 copies in its first week of release.

In 2001, guitarist Wes left Limp Bizket and the band’s next album was met with mixed reviews. He rejoined in 2004 but the group’s fan-base was fast dwindling.

The following year, Limp Bizket released their album The Unquestionable Truth (Part 1) before deciding to go on hiatus.

Fred decided to move into film directing and worked on a selection of independent films.

Three years ago, he co-wrote and directed a semi-autobiographical film called Moose, which is about a run-in with an obsessed stalker.
