Reznor Addresses Nine Inch Nails' Revolving Lineup Door

(Classic Rock) Trent Reznor admits Nine Inch Nails' lineup problems disrupted his plans for the band, but he believes the end result is all the better as a result. He announced a "reinvented" version of the band at the beginning of the year, then unveiled a group of musicians including King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew and former Jane's Addiction bassist Eric Avery.

Last month Avery bowed out, saying he was "overwhelmed" by NIN's touring commitments. Belew announced his departure at the beginning of June, insisting there had been no fall-out but that "we both agreed it just was not working."

"It's been disruptive," Reznor tells KROQ. "I started off with an idea of who would be in the band, and we started working that way. You can spend a lot of time, as I have done, projecting what it's going to be like with this chemistry and this recipe and in reality, it rarely is that.

"It turned out to be something different in the case of a couple of people in the band. It's felt like a wrench in the works at times. But it's made me rethink a lot, and where we're ending up at is much truer to what Nine Inch Nails should be and better, in the long run." more on this story
