American musician, lead singer for "Nine Inch Nails." A convoluted individual, he was abused for years with incest by his mom, and many of the group’s themes center on dark S&M subject matter.

Reznor began studying piano when he was five years old and later taught himself to play both the tuba and saxophone. When his parents divorced in 1970, he went to live with his maternal grandparents. He attended Allegheny College in Pennsylvania where he studied computer engineering before moving to Cleveland in 1987. There he worked with several bands, finally achieving minor fame with the group, "Problems." In 1988, he formed his own band, "Nine Inch Nails (NIN)," and although their first album, "Industrial Nation," was never released, their second effort, "Pretty Hate Machine," 1990, was quite successful. Using his own feelings of alienation and his memories of being an "outsider" as a child, he channeled his own pain into the music, resulting in a product that, although controversial, is considered quite memorable. Always restless, he kept personal control himself of all the writing and production.

Reznor and his manager, John Malm, formed their own record label, "Nothing Records," in 1992 and released "Broken," for which Reznor received his first Grammy. He won his second Grammy in 1996 for "Happiness in Slavery." He produced the soundtrack for Oliver Stone’s film, "Natural Born Killers," an imaginative but disturbing mix of music and dialogue.

Unmarried, Reznor had a brief affair with Courtney Love, musician Kurt Cobain’s widow, during the mid-1990s.

Source Notes

Muriel Hastings quotes Courtney Love, from Reznor, with time 11:53 pm.

In June 2015 Dina Cavanaugh writes per email: "I did Trent Reznor's chart back in '96 and got the time directly from him. He was born at 7:30 am and not the time you have in your databank which was supplied by Courtney Love (not a good source for anything given her, uhm, mendacious nature, shall we say?)."

In June 2016, Alice Cefaratti wrote on the Astrodienst Forum: "Make-A-Wish is a foundation founded in my home state of AZ that grants opportunities to children with life threatening illnesses. My wish was to meet Trent Reznor. In the summer of 2007 (I took awhile to choose my wish) they flew my whole family out to Los Angeles where we met the whole band. We spent 4 some odd hours with him/them and one of the questions I had was his correct birth time. (I attempted to get this info before I met him so I could do a proper chart, but to no avail). So I asked him and Trent actually texted his dad for the info. He texted back and said he was born on May 17, 1965 in Mercer, PA at 11:56 PM".
