Trent Reznor Phones Terminally Ill Fan During Nine Inch Nails Show
Trent Reznor recently took time during a Nine Inch Nails show in Las Vegas to video-chat with a terminally ill fan, Rolling Stone reports. Andrew Youssef, a Los Angeles based photographer, was diagnosed with colon cancer in 2011, and had been chronicling his battle with the disease in a weekly column for OC Weekly. Youssef's column, which frequently mentioned Nine Inch Nails' music, was read by Reznor, who reached out to the writer, offering him gig tickets and taking him out to lunch. Youssef was supposed to attend the Las Vegas show, but had been too ill to make the journey, which prompted Reznor to FaceTime him before the band played "In This Twilight." The song was one that Youssef had mentioned on his blog: "Throughout my diagnosis, the meaning of a lot of the songs I like has changed drastically. This particular song resonates with me during the lyrics 'As the time is running out / Let me take away your doubt / We can find a better place / In this twilight.'" You can watch a video of the performance here:
