THE BAND: Nine Inch Nails
HOMETOWN: Cleveland, Ohio
MEMBERS: Trent Reznor and whomever else.
THEIR DEAL: This industrial-leaning and widely-respected borderline-legendary band has gone from scratch demos in Trent Reznor’s bedroom to selling out arenas across the globe over the span of their career.
THE DIRT: Since the group is solely based around Reznor’s music and vision, they have gone through multiple lineup changes over the years. This time, however, their lineup change is a bit drastic. Replacing the ever-so-gifted Josh Freese, the drummer of Lostprophets, Ilan Rubin, will now be the sitting drummer for Nine Inch Nails. I have one question: who paid Trent Reznor to give a band like lostprophets a listen to begin with?
