Nine Inch Nails David Lynch Trent Reznor

It went without saying that Nine Inch Nails would make a live appearance at the Roadhouse on the new 'Twin Peaks' series, but it seems that creator David Lynch had a very specific idea on what kind of sound he wanted from them for the eighth episode.

Band members Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross recently opened up about their collaboration with David Lynch on 'Twin Peaks: The Return' - a project that they really didn't need much persuading to join. As it turns out, the song that they sung at the Roadhouse entitled 'She's Gone Away' was written especially for the show, and ended up also being included on the 'Not the Actual Events' EP.

Trent Reznor Looks 'Fondly' Back On Late Nine Inch Nails Keyboardist James Woolley


Nine Inch Nails Trent Reznor

The frontman of Nine Inch Nails - Trent Reznor - has paid tribute to his friend and former band member James Woolley, who was announced to have passed away earlier this week. The singer and Oscar winning film composer told how he has fond memories of working with the keyboardist, despite his brief tenure.

Woolley worked with Reznor in Nine Inch Nails from 1991 to 1994, but despite the brevity of his involvement, he was there for some pretty significant moments in the band's career. He worked on their critically acclaimed second album 'The Downward Spiral' - which included the songs 'Hurt', 'March Of The Pigs' and 'Closer' - and even performed with the band for their legendary Woodstock 1994 set.

'Terrible news regarding James. I hadn't crossed paths with him for some time, but always thought of him fondly', Reznor told Rolling Stone. 'He was a fun character to be around, a solid musician and a genuinely good guy. Those of us from that era of the band have been sharing 'James' stories ... lots of laughs and love and sadness. Wishing his family the very best.'

Woolley's former wife and mother of his three children (Brendan, Mary and Anne) Karen Van Buren originally broke the news of his death to the public via Facebook, though didn't specify a cause of death; she merely revealed that he had been struggling with neck and spine problems for some time.

'I met James Woolley in late 1991 at the Sunset Social Club in Los Angeles. I was with my friend Tatiana enjoying the live band, then stood in the long line for the ladies' room. James was sitting on a chair nearby. We started talking and it was love at first sight', she wrote in her moving tribute.

Is there anyone left in Hollywood NOT starring in the 'Twin Peaks' revival?! The 200-strong cast of the upcoming David Lynch series has been announced in full, revealing not only the original actors set to return (so thats pretty much everyone), but a whole bunch of new faces who will appear - including a handful of musical stars.

The upcoming new show is a continuation of the events of the 90s drama's original two series. It's only due for a limited 18-episode run on Showtime next year, which probably explains why so many people have agreed to get on board. Literally everyone you can think of from the show is making an appearance; Kyle MacLachlan as Agent Dale Cooper, Sheryl Lee as Laura Palmer, Mädchen Amick as Shelly Johnson, Dana Ashbrook as Bobby Briggs, Richard Beymer as Benjamin Horne, Sherilyn Fenn as Audrey Horne, Ray Wise as Leland Palmer and many more.

Trent Reznor has voiced his extreme disappointment after his performance with Nine Inch Nails at last night's Grammy Awards was cut short by the ceremony's organisers.

"Music's biggest night... to be disrespected. A heartfelt F**K YOU guys," a disgruntled Reznor tweeted after learning of the Grammys producers' decision to curtail the live coverage. Rock fans watching the show were similarly outraged and sent a barrage of tweets directed at the Grammys organisers. The supergroup had already instilled awe with a rendition of NIN's 'Copy of A' when the rock legends' performance was cut short mid-way through the recent QOTSA hit 'My God Is The Sun.'
