Former Nine Inch Nails Musician James Woolley Dies Aged 50


Nine Inch Nails

One-time keyboardist for Nine Inch Nails James Woolley has passed away at the age of just 50 after struggling with 'significant neck and spine injuries' for some time. It's not yet been revealed what his exact cause of death was, but his passing was confirmed in a statement from his ex-wife Kate Van Buren.

Trent ReznorTrent Reznor has not yet reacted publicly to the news

Van Buren revealed the news via Facebook on Tuesday (August 16th 2016) alongside a moving obituary. Woolley is best known for playing keyboard in Trent Reznor's industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails, lending his talents to their breakthrough 1994 album 'The Downward Spiral'. While his cause of death is not known, his former wife revealed that he had health complications which restricted him from certain physical activities.

'James worked hard and played hard with NIN', Van Buren said. 'He brought coolness to playing keyboards, which isn't as easy to do as playing guitar or drums.'



Woolley left the band the same year 'The Downward Spiral' was released, after just three years. He went on to play in a number of other bands, as described by Van Buren in her tribute. 'James played briefly in Rob Halford's band Two, produced music for a wide array of groups, worked on sound design for The Simpsons (those fart sounds are authentic), and worked on his own tunes for his band VOID in our home studio', she said.

Several other former members of Nine Inch Nails have taken to social media to pay tribute to their old pal. 'Rest in peace James Woolley, my old friend', Drummer Chris Vrenna wrote, while guitarist Richard Patrick lamented 'I miss my buddy.' Keyboardist Charlie Clouser, who took over after Woolley left, said: '#RIPJamesWoolley My predecessor in NIN, a truly kind man. Such a sad day.'

Woolley is survived by his three children with Van Buren - Brendan, Mary and Anne - and his funeral is due to be held in Glenview, Illinois near where he lived on Saturday (August 20th 2016).

Justin Bieber

Bieber Banged Up For Druggy Drag Racing: Justin Bieber has just had the mother of all terrible fortnights. The recalcitrant popstar was under investigation for a vicious egg attack on his neighbor's home by police who discovered drugs upon raiding Bieber's abode. The 'Baby' singer headed snowboarding with his equally rebellious chums with the threat of deportment looming. The singer was then arrested yesterday for DUI and drag racing in Miami.

Bieber showed what a true hard-ass he really was when police stopped him and he immediately snitched on himself, saying he was drunk and high on weed and prescription medication. The 19 year-old was released from a Miami jail an hour after a Miami judge, set a "standard" $2,500 bond Thursday afternoon. The widely-circulated mugshot shows the fallen star grinning ear-to-ear in his orange prison v-neck, prompting Seth Rogen to brand him "a piece of s**t."

Made In America Festival 2013

The Budweiser Made in America Festival 2013 was jampacked with highlights from some of the most iconic artists of the age, as well as some of the best up-and-coming stars and the hidden talent you'd be a fool to have missed.

Taking place over August 31st and September 1st in Philadelphia, the Saturday kicked things off with some impressive acts. Feisty California sisters Haim performed early on in the afternoon with a thoroughly entertaining set, in terms of both music and audience interaction, on the Liberty Stage where other must-see artists such as Deadmau5, 2 Chainz and triple BRIT winning Emeli Sande also thrilled the crowd. The Freedom Stage saw the likes of Rudimental further establish their place in the hearts of a large proportion of festival goers, while the Skate Park Stage saw much smaller bands such as Ohio group Cloud Nothings and New Jersey D&B duo Brick & Mortar get the ultimate chance to showcase their talents. The main Rocky Stage was, of course, the real crowd bringer, with Beyonce headlining and Phoenix and Imagine Dragons delivering the uttermost electrifying rock shows of the night.

Nine Inch Nails' Secret Album - Trent Reznor Reveals All


Trent Reznor Nine Inch Nails

For a band with such an ample and dedicated following, it’s pretty amazing that frontman and founder Trent Reznor managed to keep their secret album under wraps until now.

Having devastated their fans with news of a split back in 2009, NIN are ready for more, and have hit their fans with the best surprise they could have hoped for. "I've been less than honest about what I've really been up to lately," Reznor explained in a statement to MTV News. "For the last year I've been secretly working non-stop with Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder on a new, full-length Nine Inch Nails record, which I am happy to say is finished and frankly f---ing great." Well, there you have it, not only was the album a secret, but it’s so good, it’s got Reznor swearing. Now, having dipped into visual media, he’s ready to take the Nails back on tour with this new record. "This is the real impetus and motivation behind the decision to assemble a new band and tour again," he continued. "My forays into film, HTDA and other projects really stimulated me creatively and I decided to focus that energy on taking Nine Inch Nails to a new place. Here we go!"

The band will hit Lollapalooza, Outside Lands, Leeds, Reading, Made In America and the Voodoo Festival as well as the Fuji Rock Festival in Naeba, Japan.

Eclectic Made In America Festival Headlined By Beyonce And Nine Inch Nails


Beyonce Knowles Nine Inch Nails Jay Z

The Made In America Festival has announced its line-up for this year’s festival and once again they’ve got Jay Z on curating duties. The rap god may not be performing himself this year but he has enlisted the help of his good wife Beyonce (or should we call her Mrs Carter now?) to headline one of the days, as well as Nine Inch Nails, in what looks to be a pretty eclectic mix of pop, dance, rock and hip-hop.

The festival will take place on August 31 and September 1, 2013 and tickets went on sale yesterday (April 10, 2013) to American Express cardmembers and fans of the Budweiser Made In America Facebook page, Billboard.com have reported. The limited sale continues until April 16 and the following day, tickets will be more widely available on public sale. Explaining the diverse mix of talent that will be performing at the festival, Paul Chibe, Budweiser’s V of Marketing said “The point of having that diversity in our music lineup we’re trying to expose the people to different types of music… Much like last year, where if you never saw Pearl Jam but you're a Jay-Z fan, we want fans of Beyonce or Calvin Harris or Wiz Khalifa to have the opportunity to see Nine Inch Nails or stuff they might have seen for awhile like Public Enemy. That eclectic mix creates an opportunity for us to really show the impact of music and culture.”

In addition to the headliners, festival goers will be able to catch Queens of the Stone Age, Deadmau5, Phoenix, Calvin Harris, Empire of the Sun, Imagine Dragons, Wiz Khalifa, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, Public Enemy, Nero, 2 Chainz, Gaslight Anthem and Aluna George, amongst others.

Watch Out Spotify! Trent Reznor's 'Daisy' Is Coming For You


Trent Reznor Nine Inch Nails Jimmy Iovine

Just when it looked as though Spotify was ready to surge ahead in the music-streaming market, Beats Electronics have thrown their hat into the ring. The company - perhaps best known for their Dr Dre line of headphones - has been plotting its entry into the streaming market for at least 12 months, following their acquisition of the digital service Mog, according to the New York Times.

News this week suggests Spotify executives should start thinking about upping their game, with Beats announcing the media-savvy Trent Reznor - frontman of Nine Inch Nails - as its chief creative officer of Daisy. Digital music executive Ian Rogers, formerly of Topspin, has been appointed CEO of the new project. Together with Beats co-founder Jimmy Iovine, Reznor will help develop Daisy into a streaming service that will "bring an emotional connection back to the act of music discovery," according to a statement. Though the specifics are being kept firmly under wraps, it is thought the service will go into direct competition with Spotify when it launches in late 2013. 

News of Reznor's involvement in the project surfaced in October, with Reznor offering a critique of existing streaming services. "Here's 16 million licensed pieces of music,' they've said, but you're not stumbling into anything. What's missing is a system that adds a layer of intelligent curation . . . As great as it is to have all this information bombarding you, there's a real value in trusted filters. It's like having your own guy when you go into the record store, who knows what you like but can also point you down some paths you wouldn't necessarily have encountered," he said.

Manchester appolo feb 27th

Nine Inch Nails have been around for a while and have been producing albums since 1989. Trent Reznor is the the creative force behind N.I.N. Trent took a five year break when he was at the peak of his career and for a while took the rock star route of drugs and depression. Thankfully he has waved goodbye to that period in his life and is back on track with the music.

Supporting them on this European tour is Ladytron. Ladytron have two pretty "ladies" fronting them, they make synth pop music with a pounding rhythem section, this band are Krautrock influenced by their own omission. The vocals of the lead singer left little impact on me as her voice seemed to be lost in the sound. The band played their catchy "Seventeen" and "He took her to a movie".
