Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails Acceptance Speech
Thank you so much, Iggy. Hello, everyone. Wrapping my head around the nine-inch nails welcoming me into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, how strange we are, strange year, I hopefully the whole camp, past and present, will be together and have a moment. And we were all stuck in our little boxes staring at our screens.
Even now, music has always been something that continues to haunt me, and, as an artist, I feel that you have perceived and resonated what you have created from a fragile and intimate place, influencing another, how they can change the way they see the world. So for being in the Hall of Fame, thank you for the recognition.
That being said, this is far from a singular attempt and the first person to introduce my fellow entrants were: Atticus Ross, Robin Fink, Alessandro Cartini, Ilan Rubin, Danny Lohner and Chris Vrenna. I love these guys and they are an integral and central part of why we are here. In addition, there were many other key players I wanted to identify, including Charlie Klauser, James Woolley, Rich Patrick, Josh Freese, Justin Meldall-Johnson, Jerome Dillon, Aaron North, Jeff Ward. And Jordy White.
Over the years I have benefited from a strong collection of people around me that have given me everything from encouragement to guidance to a kick in the ass when needed. These include Jimmy Iowin, John Silva, Mark Geiger, Ross Rosen, Alan Mulder, Rick Rubin, Gia Modabber, Bill Harper, David Fincher, Jerome Crooks, Steve Barnett, Jim Gurinot and John Malm. All of you appreciated and this is for you too. Special thanks to my wife Mariqu and children, you keep me humble and everything is worth it.
And for fans of nine inch nails out there — you guys are the best. We’re hurt in some weird places together, and you’re a serious group that can drive me out of my mind, but you’re the best. This journey is too far for me to say anything, so let’s stop fucking ‘around Patin’ in the back. Hope to see all of you in the flesh soon. Thank you.
