Rocker Trent Reznor has vowed never to attend the Grammy Awards again after his set at the 2014 show was cut short.
The Nine Inch Nails frontman was furious when his finale performance with Dave Grohl, Josh Homme and Lindsey Buckingham fell victim to time constraints, and the TV broadcast’s credits began to roll before their set was finished.
He has now revealed he didn’t know about the snub until he walked off stage and was told his performance had been cut short so TV channels could show adverts instead.
Reznor tells 3news.co.nz, “It was an utter waste of time… We weren’t expecting was that level of insult. In fact we walked off stage and I thought, ‘Hey, that actually went pretty well’, and I look at my collaborator Rob Sheridan, who I run (sic) into, and he’s like, ‘Oh my God man, you won’t believe what they just did… They cut this thing off in the middle and put a Delta commercial on.’ ‘What?’ We had no idea… It was just insulting.”
Reznor also vows to boycott the awards show in future, adding, “Lesson learned… If we hadn’t have done it, I’d be thinking, ‘Well, what would have happened it we would have done it?’ You know. So I don’t regret that we did it, but would I ever – in any situation – ever consider possibly patronising that event in any form? Absolutely not.”
