TRENT REZNOR Says Collaborations With DE LA ROCHA, KEENAN May Never Surface

NINE INCH NAILS mainman Trent Reznor recently spoke to about his collaboration with former RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE frontman Zack de la Rocha.

A de la Rocha/Reznor cut, "We Want It All", appeared on last year's "Songs and Artists That Inspired Fahrenheit 9/11". As for what will happen with the other 19 or so tracks the two worked on together, Reznor has no idea.

"We got together for a number of sessions in New Orleans just working on some material that, personally, I thought turned out excellent," Reznor said. "Over time, I think it was a matter of Zack not knowing what direction to go. I know the feeling of fear. He's in a difficult position of leaving one of the best bands of the '90s, and he wants to make an important statement when he makes it. And he will when he gets around to making it."

Regarding TAPEWORM, Reznor's collaboration with TOOL/A PERFECT CIRCLE singer Maynard James Keenan, Trent said, "It just didn't seem like it was that great to me. At the end of the day I figure, if we are going to work together, it's got to be the greatest thing ever. It didn't feel like that to me.

"Plus I was starting to work on my thing and [Keenan] was on tour. It just got complicated and seemed like one not to pursue. It was pretty good, but I wouldn't put a record out of my own that I thought was 'pretty good.' "
