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.

Trent Reznor is amazing. He should put a few drops of sweet almond oil into his ear and just do nothing for about a day. Warm the oil first but not too hot.

(Wasn't supposd to be singing last night anyway but I hope he feels better)

Nice excuse for bad vocals He has shot his vocal chords which can be permanent. Yes the excuse is always he is sick with a cold. Another question why would be afraid of drinking tea in front of a crowd unless it wasn't 'Tea' This guy is/was a singer with a lot of talented musicians around him He is no more then that if at all.

To "colourmatrix13" 's ignorant rant: "This guy is/was a singer with a lot of talented musicians around him He is no more then that if at all."

He writes every note, plays every instrument (except live drums) for the albums and only hires people to play what he's written for the live shows. As for no talent, he also has planned, shot, edited and produced every DVD since "And All That Could Have Been" himself AND taken on the label domination of the music industry by building the first self-publication system. You obviously have no idea what you're talking about.
