Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor did a lengthy interview with Digg’s Kevin Rose recently, answering the top questions submitted by users. The talk was interesting, but many NIN fans felt misrepresented, so they took to the message boards with their complaints. Reznor responded by offering NIN.com and Echoingthesound.org users their own Digg-style interview and this time around he wasn’t holding back:
“I’m not Prince or Rivers Cuomo who brags about having hundreds of great songs,” Reznor said. “And to that I would say, Prince, if you have a hundred great songs or a thousand, how about picking a few and putting them on your record that you’ve put out because your last several have sucked. Same for you, Rivers. I say that constructively, you know.”
Wow. Between his active Twitter, post-engagement red carpet appearance, and these revealing interviews, it looks like the once-reclusive Reznor isn’t shying away from public life anymore. You can download the complete one hour webcast here (Thanks for the tip, Jarrett!).
