Nine Inch Nails

Watch Various Ex-Members Join Nine Inch Nails For New Q&A At Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame


It would appear that Filter mastermind Richard Patrick has buried the hatchet with his former bandmates in Nine Inch Nails. Before launching his own multi-platinum alternative metal group Filter, Patrick handled the guitar duties in Nine Inch Nails from around 1989 to 1993. He notably appeared on the group’s 3x multi-platinum selling 1989 album “Pretty Hate Machine“.

Back in September of 2020, Patrick appeared to be rather unhappy with being omitted from the members of Reznor‘s legendary industrial metal band to have been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame. That same month would find Patrick speaking about his acrimonious exit from Nine Inch Nails in the early 1990s. In that same interview Patrick confirmed that despite the nature of his exit from the band, he and Reznor had rekindled their friendship in the years since.

If there was any tension from the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame‘ snub, it would appear that is now water under the bridge, as Patrick and several other former members (Chris Vrenna, Danny Lohner & Charlie Clouser) of the Cleveland hometown heroes took part in yesterday’s (September 23rd) ‘Nine Inch Nails Fan Day‘ at the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame itself.

That Q&A preceded tonight’s show show at the Blossom Music Center in Cuyahoga Falls, OH and can be watched below:
