Trent Reznor’s Guide On How To Turn Fans Into Fanatics
A few years ago, when I still lived in New Orleans, my ex-wife (the smart one) had a visit from her brother and one of his friends. They were both seniors in college and were having a week of debauchery before the realities of the real world came crashing down.
Well the friend was a big Nine Inch Nails fan. Since Trent lived in New Orleans, we decided to show them his funeral home turned house since my wife had recently been their for a Holloween party. (The advantages of an expensive liberal education!) (The house was recently sold, BTW). It was about 3AM.
We saw one of the lights on so we convinced the friend to knock on the door and invite Trent out drinking with us. (um, this was New Orleans.) Since the gate was locked the kid hesitantly pressed the intercom button. Trent answered. The kid babbled about what a big fan he was and if Trent wanted to come out drinking. Trent said he was tired but talked to the kid for almost 15 minutes about college, New Orleans and what the kid would do after he graduated. He completely made this kid’s vacation. The kid talked about it for days and even used the story to get laid.
I wonder how many people that kid told his story to?
Anybody got any cool stories to tell about you?Explore posts in the same categories: Army Of One, blog networks, branding, music, New Orleans, personal
