Trent Reznor - Trent Reznor blasts 'fashion' music

Trent Reznor thinks modern music is ''more fashion than substance''.

The Nine Inch Nails mastermind says technology makes it easier for people to create their musical ideas, without necessarily having to learn to play an instrument first.

Writing on Reddit.com, he said: ''I don't really care if you can play an instrument or not. I don't think that's a mandatory skill required to make music that can connect with people.

''I do think computers have made it easy to make lazy music that sounds nice. I find a fair amount of what's championed today feels to me like it falls in that category - much more fashion than substance. There's also a lot of current music I think is great - and as someone pointed out below, The Knife is a good example.''

Trent has recently announced he has put a new live line up for Nine Inch Nails together which will tour over the summer.

He said: ''The band is reinventing itself from scratch and will be comprised of Eric Avery, Adrian Belew, Alessandro Cortini, Josh Eustis, Ilan Rubin, and me. The first shows will begin this summer, followed by a full-on arena tour of the US this fall, and lots of other dates worldwide to follow through 2014. Lots of details and dates to come. See you soon.''

Trent is also a member of How To Destroy Angels, who have released their debut album, 'Welcome Oblivion', this week.
