Trent Reznor has opened up about the departure of guitarist Adrian Belew from Nine Inch Nails, saying that the split is probably better off in the long run. During a recent interview with Radio.com, Trent said that it's been a difficult transition, but he's used to juggling band members at this point:
"You can spend a lot of time hypothesizing, imagining and projecting what it's gonna be with this chemistry and this recipe of people in a room playing music, and in reality it rarely is that."
He added: "It's felt like a wrench in the works at times, but at the same time it's made me rethink a lot of how we put this together, and I think where we're ending up at is a place that's much truer to what Nine Inch Nails should be and better in the long run."
The former King Crimson guitarist broke news of his departure from the group in February. The news comes just months before NIN releases their new album Hesitation Marks.
