Trent Reznor, lead singer of Nine Inch Nails (NiN), was performing at a concert recently when he decided to FaceTime a fan. He was just about to play “In This Twilight” before FaceTiming the fan. Reznor called the NiN fan and his friend Andrew Youssef, a concert photographer with OC Weekly. Youssef has stage four colon cancer and he told him that he wanted to dedicate the song to him. Youssef picked up the call and the audience cheered for him.
“I just wanted to tell you that I miss you man,” said Reznor. “I wish you were here.”
Youseff wrote a blog post on the OC Weekly called “In This Twilight” where he talked about his ordeal with cancer.
Reznor invited Youseff to join him on the NiN tour. After he wrote about NiN in July, Youseff saw the band at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on November 8th. He was too tired to get to Las Vegas, but he did hear the crowd.
