Trent Reznor's Stunning Shout Out to Andrew Youssef

Posted By on Wed, Nov 20, 2013 at 10:42 AM

At this point, we thought we'd seen just about everything Nine Inch Nails could do to show their support for beloved music photographer Andrew Youssef. He's already going down in history for having one of the most legendary NIN fan experiences ever, thanks to the time spent with Trent Reznor and company before their fall arena tour. Since learning about Youssef's battle with Stage IV colon cancer, there's no question the band and its team have formed a genuine bond with one of its biggest and most deserving fans. Youssef chronicled the experiences in his Last Shot column, which delves into his experiences fighting cancer through his love of music.

But when the veteran photographer unexpectedly answered a FaceTime chat with Reznor on November 16, days after seeing NIN perform at the Staples Center on November 8, it turns out he got an even better seat to the show at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino. Just before launching into their song "In This Twilight," (the title of one of Youssef's most brave and devastating posts), Reznor gave Youssef a special dedication that's probably still ringing in his ears, even though he was too physically drained to be at the show. Check out the video below to see what we mean.
