New Beginnings for Old Friends

ninjaBeing in a band is a bit of an emotional tightrope walk.

Trying to make any art can be difficult. It’s hard enough to write one good song on your own — let alone to do it with a group of people, each with a different aesthetic.

The first picture was a photo of Reznor, producer Alan Moulder and NIN veteran-programmer Atticus Ross, leaning over a mixing console. Next came a picture of Jane’s Addiction bassist Eric Avery working on a lap top, then Jane’s Addiction drummer Stephen Perkins, and today we’re treated to a picture of Reznor in the studio with Dave Navarro, guitarist for Jane’s Addiction.”
