"The USB drive was simply a mechanism of leaking the music and data we wanted out there," Reznor explained. "The medium of the CD is outdated and irrelevant. It's really painfully obvious what people want - DRM-free music they can do what they want with. If the greedy record industry would embrace that concept I truly think people would pay for music and consume more of it."


If Trent had done what everyone wanted him to, he would not have become a better selling act or bigger star as some of his advisors may have secretly thought. Instead, he would have disappeared long ago.


I was disappointed by The Fragile, but since then Trent has kicked his heroin habit and is now evidently kicking many asses in the music biz. You can bet I'm going to buy a legit copy of Year Zero - I think it stands a good chance of being some of NIN's best work ever.

I got a call from area code 515, but I was busy and the voice mail didn't come through. If you want to reach me, you're better off sending a mail to mackys at gully.org.
