its with very mixed emotions i tell you all that im pulling out of NIN. i know. its been a tough call and i don't know if its the right one. but i really want to focus on my musical life here in la, on film work in particular. as the tour dates kept growing… i just got overwhelmed. i just got home from a year of heavy travel with garbage, the idea of leaving town for another year and a half, and with all the intensity that nails demands… fortunately my friend Trent understands all this and appreciated my pulling the plug now instead of deep into 2013 and 14. go get em gentlemen.

NIN news is always a race

Jane's news is too sometimes. :lol:

Just read this too. I mean, I get Eric's perspective/position...but man, what an opportunity.

Not to bag on Eric...but it's no wonder he and Perry don't get along. They both have their idiosyncrasies...but obviously, Perry way more so. :hehe:

Trent's Reply/repost:
Trent Reznor shared Eric Avery's post.

I / we get it and love you, Eric. While we're sure going to miss having you along for this adventure I personally cannot wait to hear more great stuff from you...
Seems like he left under amicable circumstances.

I'll bet that Eric left because he realized that Trent is the real head. :lol:

This kind of exposes a key thing about Eric, in that he seems to make some pretty major decisions rather impulsively, regrets it and doesn't see it through. You'd think it would be pretty clear going into this NIN tour that it would be a pretty significant undertaking probably lasting a good year plus. I'm glad he let them know well in advance to give Trent time to bring in someone else but he really shouldn't have even considered the idea based on his stated concerns.

Well, if Trent is looking for a bassist with acceptable chops who will clean toilets and fetch coffee, I'm sure Chris Chaney can free up his schedule.

I think Chaney is out with Steve Vai, as he was on the album and supposedly on his tour.

I love Eric for being the foreskin in Janes 1.0. He and Perry created Janes and Janes would be nothing with them. He also brought the balls back to the band with Ninja. But he is a pussy. He couldn't deal with Perry and Dave's divaness so he left Janes rather than try to make them a great band again. He then gets an opportunity to join a tremendous band and he bails on the the eve of a tour. To each their own but opportunity only knocks so many times.

A year and a half with TR and crew could only have served some really fantastic and enlightening moments on so many levels. Dude's 46, 47? I don't and never will blame or fault his decision to leave Jane's, but this is just a seriously misguided decision. :crazy:

Obviously Eric isn't into a instant cash grab. Touring with NIN would have brought him a good chunk of change.


I can respect that.

Before a bunch of us rush to judgment, maybe there is more to it. Maybe he misses his family...maybe someone he loves is sick...maybe _______...who knows? :noclue:

He left Jane's in '91 to get/stay clean. He left again in '10 because he was reminded of what he had always known: him and Perry just don't gel anymore.

I was wondering how Lollapalooza was going to work. I guess this solves that.

as Hype explained to us all last summer there's no such thing as free will, so this is the only way he could possibly have handled this. :essence:

sucks though, I was looking forward to seeing those guys rock out and possibly have written songs together

I don't know. I think it is as he states. Maybe in the beginning they were planning on doing x number of shows, but it's gotten bigger than originally conceived? Makes no difference to me as I'm not a huge NIN fan. I might have seen them because he was involved.
