Evidence: He has put out five albums over the past eight years and he has toured with such bands as The Matches, Simple Plan, Bolwing for Soup, Gym Class Heroes, Say Anything, Streetlight Manifesto, Suburban Legends, Patent Pending, Fightstar, MC Frontalot, and Wheatus. Limp Bizkit, however, is still waiting for the phone call.
