Rock Legends Call Out Trent Reznor & Maynard James Keenan’s Vanity: ‘They’re The Worst’


Legendary photographer Ross Halfin discussed Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan and Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor’s vain behavior and obsession with their looks in a new Osbournes podcast interview.

“Look at your favorite band Tool, there’s another band that make out the anti-this, the anti-that. The thing is he’s difficult because he cares about how he looks, and he only wants to be seen only a certain way. Nine Inch Nails, like Mr. Hardcore Noise, he cares about how he looks. It’s the bands that you least expect that are the absolute worst.”

Ozzy Osbourne responded somewhat unintelligbly, “They make money, what are they going to do, spend it.”

“They’ll go to a place to have their hair blown, it’s a little more expensive.”

Halfin said, “We’re talking about the image!”

Sharon Osbourne said, “I know, but what we’re saying is, all the bands in those days were saying it doesn’t matter how you look, it’s just the music, and that’s all we care about.”

Halfin added, “Listen, they care. They want to look the same as Tom Jones. They really [do].”
