Trent Reznor chills with the plebes

trent reznorPardon me for getting my Perez on, but I wanted to point out a semi-famous figure in this photograph.

Not only is Nine Inch Nails front man Trent Reznor a fan of Iggy Pop and the Stooges, he's not afraid of wading out into the great unwashed to watch Pop play.

I dig that.

Props to Rezzy.

And I'm not sure who took this photo, but whoever you are, good spot.

Iggy is a national treasure. Everone should see him.

He's 60, and he's still the best rock and roll frontman around.

Trent knows this.

I know this.

Everyone needs to know this.

A handful of songs aside, I was surprised by how dull the NIN set was...STP had more energy, sounded tighter and drew the biggest crowd of the weekend to the North Stage. Maybe Trent needs to hole up in a dark corner to get himself angry before he plays instead of hanging out in the sun with all of that positive energy around him.

Iggy was the most entertaining act at VirginFest on Sunday.

i thought NIN easily had the best set of the day, audience size aside. this coming from a huge STP fan - i've seen STP four times and this was easily their flatest performace.

That photo is from his site taken by his friend.

That photo is from his site taken by the great Rob Sheridan.

Trent keeps a Photo Tour Blog of each place he plays at via his iPhone and Rob Sheridan.
