"Prayer Focus Artist"
When he's not busy as the lead singer of the multi-million selling
alternative act Nine Inch Nails, 31-year-old Trent Reznor plays the
role of the producer for bands such as the controversial Marilyn
Manson. With millions of fans snapping up his records around the
world, you'd think Reznor would be a happy contented man. He's
not. In an interview earlier this year, Reznor described the hole he
feels in his soul:
"Like I always though, 'Man if I could ever be a rock star ...' Some
stupid [profanity deleted] naive dream, and then you get it and ...
I've been at my lowest point, and I'm not just saying this; it didn't
work, man. I mean, my job is ... I wake up and make music and
work with people I respect, and David Bowie will take my call, so
why ... do I want to kill myself, you know?" He concludes, "I'm on
a [profanity deleted] path to self destruction." (1)
This revealing interview brings to mind the words of Christ in Luke
9:25, "What good is it for a man to gain the whole world, and yet
lose or forgeit his very self?" This month, pray that the restlessness
Trent Reznor is experiencing will drive him to the peace that's found
only through Jesus.
