Nine Inch Nails’ Reznor Working With “Hero”

Trent Reznor

It’s not every day we get to work with our heroes. But then again, who’d want to work with Ron Jeremy.

This week, Nine Inch Nails and How To Destroy Angels mainman Trent Reznor has been working with a hero of his.

The two have been in the studio working on something. But what, we have no idea.

Reznor won’t give up the name.

“In the studio for a day of experimentation with a hero of mine,” he states on Twitter.

“David Byrne = hero of mine, but it’s not him. I doubt you’ll guess this one,” says Trent.

Tossing out Byrne’s name was no mere coincidence. If anything, it was an explanation.

See, Reznor and the Talking Heads leader were part of some seminar in Los Angeles three days ago, and spoke to one another at the Aratani/Japan America Theatre.

You can see video of that saucy little interchange below.
