Took some time out tonight to watch the latest Digg Dialogg featuring Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor. As well as much insight into his thoughts on the music industry, gaming and several other topics, one of the questions asked was in relation to the Tapeworm project featuring Maynard. Trent’s response was essentially that the music wasn’t up to scratch (he rated it a 7/10 when he really would expect a NIN/Tool type collaboration to be a 10/10) and that there were various commercial pressures which became issues. The general feeling was that the music created would not be released in any form. He did mention though that he is still good friends with Maynard, and would definitely be interested some collaboration in the future.
The full interview is about 40 minutes, and I would suggest that any Tool fan would find it interesting viewing.
