“Nailed my first show playing with a recovering broken hand. I can’t express the amount of anxiety I was having leading up to this but three fingers was enough to get the job done and Krasnodar was amazing. Thanks to all my brothers in @limpbizkit for believing in me and my amazing support system including @aliejoboxblock and new costuming by my friends @thewisehatter and @adelemildred for bringing it all together. Big love for Russia. Big love for Krasnodar.”

Limp Bizkit’s Sam Rivers Reveals That His Hiatus From The Band Was Related To Liver Disease

Limp Bizkit’s Sam Rivers has officially confirmed what led to his hiatus from the band in 2015. In the new book, “Raising Hell: Backstage Tales From The Lives Of Metal Legends,” the bassist revealed that he actually had liver disease and had to undergo a liver transplant in 2017.

Rivers said the following:

“I had to leave Limp Bizkit in 2015 because I felt so horrible, and a few months after that I realized I had to change everything because I had really bad liver disease. I quit drinking and did everything the doctors told me. I got treatment for the alcohol and got a liver transplant, which was a perfect match.”

He also added:

“I was diagnosed in 2011. I didn’t really get what was happening back then. I stopped drinking and battled the liver disease for a bit. I got clean for about nine or ten months and went on tour. I was super clean, but my home life wasn’t that great at the time and as soon as I got off tour I started drinking, and then drinking more. I fell right back into being a horrible drunk again.”

“It got so bad I had to go to UCLA Hospital and the doctor said, ‘If you don’t stop, you’re going to die. And right now, you’re looking like you need a new liver.’ I fought liver disease for a couple years and it won. I had to get a liver transplant in 2017.”
