Trent Reznor -- You Get Me Closer to Doc

9/4/2009 3:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Trent ReznorNine Inch Nails had to cancel last night's show in Hollywood because frontman Trent Reznor was "ill" -- and now we know exactly what's buggin' him.

Sources close to Trent tell TMZ he had a cold and developed a clogged ear during his flight out to California.

The clog got so bad, we're told Reznor couldn't hear himself sing during his show Wednesday at the Palladium and overcompensated by screaming out his songs -- resulting in some seriously screwed up vocal cords.

Reznor will be visiting the doctor again today, and they'll decide then whether the band will be able to continue the tour.

UPDATE
: NIN's last few tour dates have now been rescheduled.

"overcompensated by screaming out his songs -- resulting in some seriously screwed up vocal cords."

Trent was obviously sick during the Palladium show but he still delivered a great performance. The best moment of the night was when Gary Numan joined NIN on stage and performed "Cars".

The show Wednesday night was a blast despite Trent not feeling well. He gave it his all, which is more than many do these days. Hope he feels better soon, and I am simply grateful I got to see one of the last NIN shows.

Rap sucks    

Real talent right here and none of that popular crap on tv and radio. There's right ways to scream so shut up hip freakin poppers. We care cause a real artist makes his own music unlike rappers and the other poppers. HAHA!!!

Why do we care? Why did YOU freakin respond to this story? YOU DON'T CARE!! It is SO STUPID for people who don't know anything to respond to these stories. Trent has a cold. OMG! He can't sing as perfect as usual. ALL performers deal with this but they get on with it. I REALLY LIKE TRENT AND HOPE HE IS FEELING BETTER, get off his back!!
