Gary Numan talks about Trent Reznor

AVC: Is there anything musically that you’d like to try doing that you haven’t yet?

GN: Not really. I’ve sort of meandered from when I started up until now. Because I like where I am, I don’t feel any pressure to do something completely different. Finding a sort of music that you really love and that you’re really into, I feel justified in hanging around in it for a while until I get that out of my system. I talked with Trent Reznor last year about doing something together. I’m not particularly good at collaborating. Historically, I don’t really have the confidence for it. I’ve done a little bit over the years. There’s a single coming out here with a band called South Central, from Brighton. The Trent Reznor thing obviously would be great. I’m a huge Nine Inch Nails fan to begin with. It’s not gotten much further than saying, “Wouldn’t it be a good idea to do that?” The thing with Trent is, he just works all the time. He’s got such an amazing professional work ethic. I have a tendency to, because he’s really successful and busy, to take a passive approach to it. I don’t want to give the impression that I’m trying to jump on his shoulders and ride the Trent Reznor connection. I think sometimes I go so passive that I give the impression I’m not really interested. I go too far. I’m hoping on the tour we’ll meet up and perhaps further that idea a bit more.
