Abstract (Document Summary)

Of course, many are called but few are chosen in rock 'n' roll, so [Doug Ardito]'s path has not been easy. Ardito played just about every rock club in Boston - including such bygone places as the Rat, the Channel, and Bunratty's - but this weekend he's back as a shining success story.

Then came his big break when Fred Durst of Limp Bizkit (which had been on that same tour) met Ardito a few years later, after Cellophane had broken up. A disillusioned Ardito had switched over to become an A&R intern at Interscope Rec ords.

Durst, however, remained their "guardian angel," Ardito says, and the result was "Come Clean." It's filled with anger-venting tracks such as "She Hates Me," "Drift & Die," and "Never Change," with the line, "Somebody's always kicking me to the curb." [Wes Scantlin]'s vocal tone evokes that of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain - the rest is multiplatinum history.
