[FACT] As ready to rumble as Trent Reznor appears to be this fall, he won’t be bringing one of Nine Inch Nails’ newest additions on tour after all. According to a Facebook post that’s been since abbreviated, King Crimson guitarist Adrian Belew has quit the band during rehearsals and decided to focus on his FLUX project instead. Here’s what he had to say in full…

hey folks, before this goes too far let me say this: I greatly respect trent and the music he makes. no one is at fault. we both agreed it just was not working. I’m sorry to disappoint anyone. that really hurts. but NIN will do an amazing show and I am back where I belong: creating FLUX.

Oh well; at least we have this to look forward to, right?
