Watch Trent Reznor Reunite With 90’s Nine Inch Nails Collaborator


Trent Reznor reunited with Mike Garson at Nine Inch Nails’ show at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on Friday night. Garson played piano on select songs on 1999’s The Fragile, and he is best known for his work with David Bowie, one of Reznor’s heroes and mentors. Just last weekend, Garson reunited with The Smashing Pumpkins, who he toured with in 1998 to promote Adore. Garson played piano on “Disarm” at KROQ Absolut Almost Acoustic Christmas.

At NIN’s show on Friday, Garson played “Just Like You Imagined”, “La Mer”, and “In This Twilight”. Gary Numan and Mariqueen Maandig were also special guests. You can watch video of Mike Garson with Nine Inch Nails at the Hollywood Palladium below the setlist.
