On Thursday evening, I had the great fortune to attend the final Nine Inch Nails live performance at The Wiltern Theater here in Los Angeles, CA. But before Trent Reznor took the stage to perform the last NIN concert, he graciously set aside some time to sit down and grant me a short interview for Pink is the new Blog:
As you may recall, I was able to interview Reznor on the last night of the Lights in the Sky Tour last December in Las Vegas, NV so I was thrilled he was willing to chat with me again on the last night of the Wave Goodbye Tour, the last for Nine Inch Nails. In our 20 minute chat, TR explained how he goes about crafting a setlist for each performance, which live performance in his 20 year touring history stands out most in his mind, his plans for new music outside of Nine Inch Nails and more. After the jump, you can watch my interview with Trent Reznor in full …
Altho I was very nervous to talk to TR again on film, he made sure to set me at ease so that we could have an engaging and comfortable conversation. I’m always taken with how candid he is in interviews and cannot express enough how much I appreciate him taking the time to talk with me. His answer about his plans for new music left me hopeful and excited, which is much different than many NIN fans feel about the end of the band. I hope this interview will leave those of you who watch it just as hopeful and excited. Below is an audio version of our interview in case you’d rather hear it instead:
Many thanks to Trent Reznor and all of his support staff who helped make this interview possible. I should mention that the videographer who oversaw the official filming at all the NIN shows also filmed my interview with TR for possible usage … tho his camera was focused on me the entire time so I doubt it’ll be useful at all. You can hear me talking with him at the start of the MP3 of my TR interview. Much love and thanks goes out to David and to Ollie who helped out with the filming and photography. I hope you enjoy my interview with Trent as much as I do. I’ll have a review and photos from the final NIN show at The Wiltern this past Thursday night later on today.
