Drummer Slams Nine Inch Nails Over Shock Sacking
Drummer JEROME DILLON was shocked to be kicked out of NINE INCH NAILS last year (05), after being hospitalised with a cardiac disorder while on tour. Dillon began to feel seriously ill following a concert in San Diego, California and checked himself into a local hospital, where he stayed for two days until doctors gave him the all-clear. Meanwhile, the band was forced to cancel a handful of dates. However, Dillon claims he then called Nine Inch Nails management about rejoining the tour only to receive "no sympathy for what I'd been through". He tells MTV, "It was absolutely the most stressful thing I've been through in my life. During the third leg of the tour, I noticed that I was not feeling good. "I was not welcomed back with open arms, which I didn't understand, since I had been in the band for six years." Dillon, who releases his debut solo album REMINDER next month (APR06), also claims Nine Inch Nails frontman TRENT REZNOR has never contacted him to see how he is.
