Miss May I in Limp Bizkit moment

Levi Benton's favourite festival moment features fans dumping rubbish in front of the stage – and he says it made him feel like he was in Limp Bizkit.

The Miss May I frontman tells TeamRock Radio: “We were closing out the Vans Warped tour and I told the crowd, ‘Let them throw you out – you’re going home anyway.’

“Right when I said that all the trash cans went up in the air and they crowdsurfed them.

“The best part was, when the security guards caught them there was just a mountain of trash in front of the stage. I felt like I was in Limp Bizkit – it was awesome.”

Miss May I believe today’s Download appearance was their biggest show to date. Benton enthuses: “It was crazy to see our childhood DVDs come to life. I think it’s the most people we’ve ever played for. It was a lot of hard work – but we’re excited.”

Elsewhere in the interview the band talk about the tragedy of fan Alberto Scott’s death at a show in New York last month.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
