Slipknot's Jordison Talks About Meeting Trent Reznor

Ripped straight from Blabbermouth, while I do tend to avoid posting "nin-spotting" stuff, it's been quiet and I thought this was entertaining.In the March issue of Sweden's premiere rock/metal magazine Close-Up, SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison talks about playing the song "The Blister" from the band's upcoming album, "Vol. 3: (The Subliminal Verses)", for NINE INCH NAILS mainmain Trent Reznor. "Me and Greg [Fidelman], our engineer, were sitting at the mixing desk listening to this shit. [Producer Rick] Rubin comes down � this is at his house � with Trent and I shake Trent's hand. Rubin tells Greg, 'Why don't you just play that song, let Trent hear it.' I fucking cranked it up, and right after the song, Trent was like, 'Dude, I gotta go lay down, I feel like a pussy now!' It was awesome! That's Trent Reznor right behind me. It was cool. A really, really humbling experience, the fact that he would say something like that about our new record. He's a lovely guy."
