"Yeah," Reznor said when asked by CBC Q's host Jian Ghomeshi regarding his love of the Canadian rock icons. "Mid, probably 12, 13 years old. Every male friend I knew that played in a band were air drumming to 'Yyz' and Rush and every guitar player was trying to play those parts."
"We call it YYZed, but yeah," Ghomeshi jokingly interjected.
"I can forgive you for that," Reznor said with a laugh. "It was just part of being in a band. You know it was kind of like if someone was going to try out for your band you'd have them play 'Spirit Of The Radio' or something. That was just the language that everyone spoke back in that world.
