As one of Trent Reznor's most consistent
musical partners, Robin Finck has become famous for appearing clad in
black, covered in mud, with his dreadlocks tied back. However, during
Nine Inch Nails' frequent periods of inactivity, he has become
associated with a number of critically acclaimed projects.
Born on November 7, 1971, Finck took up the guitar at an early age,
appearing in several unsigned local bands, before replacing
Richard Patrick in
the touring lineup of Nine Inch Nails. Finck's first appearance with the
band was on the mammoth Self Destruct tour, including their acclaimed
performance at Woodstock II. When the your eventually wound down, Finck
signed on as musical director for Cirque du Soleil, a position he occupied
for nearly two years.
With no new Nine Inch Nails product in the pipeline, Finck joined the
reincarnated Guns'N Roses in 1998. Although he contributed to a number of
tracks and was publicized as a full-time member, the album was delayed
several times, and Finck returned to Nine Inch Nails for the Fragility tour.
Since then, Finck has made several live appearances with Guns N' Roses and
will appear on the forthcoming Chinese Democracy album. He is also involved
with the eponymous debut album from Impotent Sea Snakes.
