Nine Inch Nails May Collaborate With Other Artists On Their Next Release

During an interview with Revolver, Trent Reznor revealed that he is hoping to collaborate with other artists on Nine Inch Nails’ next release. He said the following about that:

“We’re talking about doing some shows next year, maybe. Probably in the last half of the year. We have a template for the next Nine Inch Nails thing we want to do… I’ll give it away: collaboration. We’ve got a list of people we like. And we thought, kind of playing on the newfound spirit of collaboration that scoring has forced us into, seeing what happens when we mix our DNA with some other people, with a no pressure environment. Let’s see what happens. If something good happens, then maybe the world can hear it. But if it doesn’t, we put it in the pile with the other…”

Judas Priest, Motörhead, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Etc. Nominated For 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame

The nominees have been revealed for the 2020 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame induction. They include: Judas Priest, Motörhead, Nine Inch Nails, Soundgarden, Thin Lizzy, Pat Benatar, Dave Matthews Band, Depeche Mode, The Doobie Brothers, Whitney Houston, Kraftwerk, MC5, The Notorious B.I.G., Rufus featuring Chaka Khan, Todd Rundgren, and T. Rex. The fan vote is now open HERE. The ceremony will be held at the Public Auditorium in Cleveland, OH on May 2.

Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil told Billboard the following:

“I thought this is important, especially for the legacy of Soundgarden, and for Chris‘ legacy. It’s really important now to understand this from the perspective of the fans and to understand Soundgarden as both a current enterprise as well as a posthumous exercise.”

Judas Priest’s Rob Halford also talked to Billboard:

“It’s just another thrill, again, to be nominated, and so quickly because I know sometimes the nominations can get stretched out for quite a long period of time. So to get another one so quickly is wonderful and another great moment for the Priest and for our fans.”

Motörhead‘s Mikkey Dee also chatted with Billboard, despite the fact that him and Phil Campbell were left out of Mötorhead’s nomination:

“In my book, if anyone really deserves to be in that Hall of Fame, it’s Motörhead in so many ways because of the inspiration on thousands of bands.

Even the biggest of the biggest have been so influenced by Motörhead and Lemmy. It’s the real deal. If you talk to Ozzy, he thinks that Motörhead should have been in before Black Sabbath, even.”

He also added the following about him and Campbell getting snubbed:

“That is pure wrong, I would say, and I know Phil will be very disappointed, too. We’ve been carrying the flag for 25 years together, and actually brought Motörhead to what it was. We did 25 years out of the 40. The original band lasted just a few years (Clarke left in 1982, Taylor in 1984 and returned from 1987-92). They started it off, but as Lemmy said himself they wouldn’t have lasted another six months doing that lineup. I don’t think we would’ve been where we are today without the 25 years we spent touring.”
