Interview Questions: Ilan Rubin (NIN, The New Regime, LPs)

Posted by - 06:16 AM on 11/26/08
I will be sending off some interview questions to Ilan Rubin in the near future. If you are want to know anything about what it was like to perform with Lostprophets, to have his full blown solo project (The New Regime) see the light of day, or how a 20 year old gets hand picked to be the new drummer of Nine Inch Nails, now is your chance to ask away.

What was the first thing you thought when you found out that they selected you to be the drummer for Nine Inch Nails?

Which song do you think would be the hardest to play? Or well, translate that to, which song do you think has the most impressive drums? And which song are you most excited to play?

Was there ever a point to where you realized that you had to make a decision between continuing with Lost Prophets and going to NIN, and what factors went into your ultimate decision? And would you like to go back to LP at some point in the future?

What did lessons with Travis Barker consist of? Rudiments? Four-way-independence? Or did he go back to basics? Fantastic drummer, by the way.

All of these.
Why did you first decide you wanted to become a dummer?

Any further plans to work with Mike Frey on his "...Students" project? Do you know if anything from that is going to be released?

Also, have you met Josh Freese? You seem to be his shadow, with him doing most of the drum tracks on the last LP record and doing NIN before you.

Did you have to move to the UK to play/write with LP or did you fly back and forth? Do they have anyone to replace you yet? Because I know this guy in Seattle... :)
