Trent Reznor

Michael Trent Reznor (born May 17, 1965 in Mercer, Pennsylvania), better known as Trent Reznor, is the creative force behind the band Nine Inch Nails. He released most of his work under his former record label, Nothing Records. In 2004, he stated he will have nothing more to do with the label. Until recently, he had lived in New Orleans, Louisiana.

TVT Records signed Trent Reznor, and in 1989 he released "Pretty Hate Machine", Nine Inch Nails' first album. Subsequent works include 1992's eight song EP "Broken", 1994's "The Downward Spiral" and 1999's "The Fragile". His latest album, "With Teeth", is expected to be released on 3 May 2005.

Reznor was the credited producer for Marilyn Manson's albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Smells Like Children (1995), and Antichrist Superstar (1996), as well as the soundtrack for the film Natural Born Killers.

Reznor likes video games, most notably Doom by id Software, which he has said he played in the Nine Inch Nails tour bus after doing shows. He also created the soundtrack for id Software's hit Quake. (As a side-note, the NIN logo also appears on the nailgun ammo boxes in Quake)

Trent returned to work with id Software in 2003 as the sound engineer for video game Doom 3. However, due to "time, money, and bad management" he had to abandon this project, and his audio work did not make it into the game's release. The original audio files can be found on the internet, although they are not officially endorsed by Reznor or id software. Chris Vrenna, former drummer for Nine Inch Nails, produced the music for Doom 3 with his partner Clint Walsh.

During the five years between his albums The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999), Trent Reznor struggled with depression, writer's block, and the death of his grandmother. He has been reported to be suffering from bipolar disorder. It was reported that Reznor had considered committing suicide during this period. In a 1999 interview for Rolling Stone magazine, he said that "It just took me time to sit down and change my head and my life around. I had to slap myself in the face: 'If you want to kill yourself, do it, save everybody the fucking hassle. Or get your shit together.'"

Trent has collaborated with such artists as Tori Amos, adding backing vocals to "Past the Mission" from Under the Pink. He has also worked with David Bowie, Pigface, Marilyn Manson, The Neptunes, 1000 Homo DJs, and Peter Gabriel.

A collaboration with Danny Lohner, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, and Atticus Ross of 12 Rounds known as Tapeworm was in production for almost ten years, but an update on the official Nine Inch Nails website has declared that the project has been terminated. The only known performance of any Tapeworm material was of Keenan's other band, A Perfect Circle performing the song "Vacant" on tour in 2001. "Vacant" appears on A Perfect Circle's third album eMOTIVe, reworked and retitled "Passive".

A stage musical about the Shaggs, Philosophy of the World, written by Joy Gregory, opened at the prestigious John Anson Ford Theatre in Los Angeles in November 2003. A collaboration with Danny Lohner, Maynard James Keenan of Tool, and Atticus Ross of 12 Rounds known as Tapeworm was in production for almost ten years, but an update on the official Nine Inch Nails website has declared that the project has been terminated. Helen, who had been suffering from depression for years, declined to attend, so NRBQ's drummer was faced with the challenging task of attempting to play Helen's parts. He has also worked with David Bowie, Pigface, Marilyn Manson, The Neptunes, 1000 Homo DJs, and Peter Gabriel. Their opening act was the Shaggs. Trent has collaborated with such artists as Tori Amos, adding backing vocals to "Past the Mission" from Under the Pink. In 2000, NRBQ celebrated their thirtieth anniversary with a concert in New York City.

Or get your shit together.'". The sound was improved.) RCA also released POTW on CD in the 1980s, whereupon it was hailed as something of an avant-garde cult classic. I had to slap myself in the face: 'If you want to kill yourself, do it, save everybody the fucking hassle. (In the interim, Dorothy Wiggin rediscovered the lost masters of POTW, which were hidden in a closet. In a 1999 interview for Rolling Stone magazine, he said that "It just took me time to sit down and change my head and my life around. Then, POTW was rereleased again, this time on a major label, RCA. It was reported that Reznor had considered committing suicide during this period. In 1978, the group NRBQ found one of the original 1000 copies at a Boston radio station and, after hearing it, got their record label to rerelease POTW.

He has been reported to be suffering from bipolar disorder. But the corpse of the Shaggs refused to rest. During the five years between his albums The Downward Spiral (1994) and The Fragile (1999), Trent Reznor struggled with depression, writer's block, and the death of his grandmother. Rumor has it that Austin died immediately after hearing the girls do a finally decent version of the title track to POTW. Chris Vrenna, former drummer for Nine Inch Nails, produced the music for Doom 3 with his partner Clint Walsh. In 1975, Austin Wiggin died of a heart attack, as did the idea of the Shaggs. The original audio files can be found on the internet, although they are not officially endorsed by Reznor or id software. The rest were circulated to New England radio stations but attracted little attention, and the girls' dreams of superstardom were dashed.

However, due to "time, money, and bad management" he had to abandon this project, and his audio work did not make it into the game's release. At this point, the man who'd promised to press 1000 copies of Philosophy of the World absconded with 900 of them. Trent returned to work with id Software in 2003 as the sound engineer for video game Doom 3. Reviews of Philosophy of the World range from original and expressive on the positive side to "Somebody stop the wailing sound of these banshees!" on the negative side. (As a side-note, the NIN logo also appears on the nailgun ammo boxes in Quake). Despite this, the record has a captivating quality. He also created the soundtrack for id Software's hit Quake. Despite this, during the recording sessions, the band would occasionally stop playing, claiming one of them had made a mistake and that they needed to start over, leaving the sound engineers to wonder how the girls could tell.

Reznor likes video games, most notably Doom by id Software, which he has said he played in the Nine Inch Nails tour bus after doing shows. It's as though the drums were recorded in a separate room from the guitars and neither could hear what the other was doing. Reznor was the credited producer for Marilyn Manson's albums Portrait of an American Family (1994), Smells Like Children (1995), and Antichrist Superstar (1996), as well as the soundtrack for the film Natural Born Killers. In fact, in listening to the record, the band seems to have no sense of melody, harmony, or rhythm. His latest album, "With Teeth", is expected to be released on 3 May 2005. It is clear from the sound of the records that the band wasn't ready to capture their sound on tape, but Austin persisted. Subsequent works include 1992's eight song EP "Broken", 1994's "The Downward Spiral" and 1999's "The Fragile". The next year, the girls went into the studio and recorded their only album, Philosophy of the World.

TVT Records signed Trent Reznor, and in 1989 he released "Pretty Hate Machine", Nine Inch Nails' first album. In 1968, Austin arranged for the girls to play a regular Saturday night gig at the Fremont, New Hampshire Town Hall. Until recently, he had lived in New Orleans, Louisiana. They named themselves the Shaggs after their 1960s hairstyles. In 2004, he stated he will have nothing more to do with the label. In the mid-1960s, Austin pulled his daughters out of school, bought them instruments, and got them music lessons. He released most of his work under his former record label, Nothing Records. After the first two became true, Austin set out to make the third happen.

Michael Trent Reznor (born May 17, 1965 in Mercer, Pennsylvania), better known as Trent Reznor, is the creative force behind the band Nine Inch Nails. When the girls' father, Austin Wiggin, was young, his mother made three predictions: he'd marry a strawberry blonde, he'd have two sons she would not live to see, and his daughters would form a famous musical group. The idea of the Shaggs is older than the girls themselves. The group members were:. It has been many times considered the worst rock and roll band of the world (or "the best worst band ever"), and this title made the band's first, last, and only album into a sort of a cult collector's item.

The Shaggs was an American all-women band. Rachel Wiggin - bass guitar. Helen Wiggin - drums. Dorothy Wiggin Semprini -lead guitar and vocals.
