Reznor breaks to facetime
In the middle of a Nine Inch Nails show in Las Vegas, front man Trent Reznor took to the stage with his iPhone to facetime a terminally ill fan. Longtime photojournalist Andrew Youssef couldn’t make the show over the weekend because of his illness—stage-4 colon cancer—so Reznor decided to give him a view from the stage just before performing Youssef’s favorite NIN song, “In This Twighlight.” Reznor became a fan of Youssef’s column “Last Shot” and the two have even had several lunches to just hang out. Video is circulating online of Reznor’s facetime with Youssef.

Breaking up is hard to do
Hinder said peace out to front man Austin Winkler after the he went into rehab a few months ago. The band actually took to the road with Winkler which left fans confused about the future of the band. Well, that uncertainty is now much clearer as the band officially came out saying there is no bad blood, but the difficult decision had to be made for the best of everyone involved. The band has been rocking out on the road with a variety of guest vocalists including Saving Abel’s Jared Weeks, but there is no word of who will permanently replace Winkler.
