Trent Reznor was the guest on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross today, and Trent actually was comical in his ability to laugh at himself in a self-depricating way. They covered his new The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo soundtrack with Atticus Ross, Gene Simmons, growing up in (and escaping) Cleveland and a lot of Nine Inch Nails history.
"But the terrible irony of the story is that the story [in Downward Spiral] came to life over the next few years," he says. "My own life spiraled out of control, and I look back now and think, 'I was writing about me.' ... I think that I was somebody who was pretty immature emotionally. And when thrust into a situation that was very abnormal — of fame and adulation — I wasn't really equipped to deal with it very well," is one of many very memorable quotes from Trent Reznor during the interview.
