Trent Reznor on the Impact David Bowie Had on Him

With the 5th anniversary of David Bowie’s death this week, many are reflecting on the musician’s impact. This includes Nine Inch Nails’ Trent Reznor.

Talking with Consequence of Sound, Reznor says that he still thinks of and listens to Bowie all of the time.

“He penetrated through the layers of bull***t that I’d built around myself. I’m grateful for that,” said Reznor.

Reznor, his wife Mauriqueen, and Atticus Ross will all be a part of A Bowie Celebration: Just for One Day! this Friday.
