Overview

Sound, throb, and a long low wail of pure, hard pain...Nine Inch Nails.

The world's most disturbing rock band is in effect one man singer and songwriter Trent Reznor. Since stealing the show during the original Lollapalooza tour in 1991, NIN has limned the hard edge of the techno revolution. In Reznor's desperate, combative persona and disarrayed melodies the musical community has finally found a band that appalls, confounds, and undeniably attracts. Horrified yet entranced, NIN's fans are like moths drawn toward the disfiguring flame of their music.

From a well of previously unpublished research, Huxley has carved out the history of this improbably hero: Reznor's rise as an Appalachian outcast to dyspeptic sex symbol; his connections to Courtney Love; and his relationship with his spasmodically fixated fans. Ricocheting wildly between goth rock and grunge, Nine Inch Nails has emerged. Here, Martin Huxley digs hard and deep to unearth the truth beneath this, the ultimate noise.

    about trent

    This book is decent, although martin huxley does not possess skill in writing. He took a bunch of magazine interviews and stories and stuck them in chapter version with his words trying to connect everything. It is informative because of the lengthy sections of quoted magazine inserts. He should have just published all magazine/newspaper articles with any reference to Trent Rezner/NIN and have left his wording out. It's really good if you know nothing about Reznor and are looking to learn.

    NIN - The Greatest Band

    I exceedingly enjoyed this book because of my love for the music of Nine Inch Nails and the amazing band itself. Since I was a little girl, I've always loved the band. Although I have found out a lot of info from various other websites, this book gave me a better feel for the band itself and the GENIUS behind it all. (Yes, genius, and so much more...) I will always worship NIN... and everything that goes along with it. For anyone who loves NIN as much as I do, this book is a great addition to all the other resources.

    TRENT REZNOR, MAN OR GOD?

    I found out in detail more about trent than I ever knew and I'm a huge fan! A real inspiration and uplifting motivator. I strongly reccomend it for the true trent worshiper.

    ?Nine Inch Nails?

    This is a fairly interesting book at times, i found Reznor's statements hilarious at times and quite true. This is merely just a bunch of Magazine articles, put together by chapters, but hey i dont have the time to go out and but those mag's so wht the heck, if you want to know about Trent and his background, buy it, if you want to be frightened and awestruck by NIN buy Closure.

    Trent Reznor is Nine Inch Nails

    The book is a waste of time. The only way to get to know a person is through time, they change like you and I; so a biography could be inaccurate. But steal it, don't buy it; buy the Closure video(s),that is worth it. The Closure video is his art, you'll learn about him from that. That author's distorted perception on the one man band is just a waste of time.
