Guitarist Adrian Belew has announced his departure from the new touring lineup of Trent Reznor's NINE INCH NAILS.
Belew wrote on Facebook: "Hey, folks, before this goes too far, let me say this: I greatly respect [NINE INCH NAILS mainman] Trent [Reznor] and the music he makes. No one is at fault. We both agreed it just was not working. I'm sorry to disappoint anyone. That really hurts. But NIN will do an amazing show and I am back where I belong: creating FLUX."
Bassist Eric Avery quit NINE INCH NAILS last month, writing onFacebook that he was "overwhelmed" at the thought of going out again with NIN after spending the last year on tour with GARBAGE.
