Ilan Rubin on Making Music and The Importance of Time

There are a lot of things that I had to learn the hard way but if there is one thing that you cannot do is sing well while being shy. You just can’t.

Ilan Rubin

Ilan Rubin (@ilanrubin) is a musical maverick. The depth of his interests and knowledge of music is truly astounding.

He was the youngest drummer to play the Woodstock stage at 11 years old, is now the youngest Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee, a revered drummer and multi-instrumentalist, and a member of Nine Inch Nails, Angels and Airwaves, and The New Regime. He also once drummed for Lostprophets and Paramore. Ilan’s inner drive to create music and perform on stage is awe-inspiring. He can play a full set opening for a headliner and then immediately perform a vigorous full set with the headlining band right after. In late 2008, Trent Reznor invited Ilan to join Nine Inch Nails and said that Ilan had “blown him away.” Ilan has explained that he finds playing with Nine Inch Nails very satisfying because there are many instruments to play.

Setorii Pond co-hosts this wide-ranging conversation. Ilan Rubin joins Setorii to talk about NIN, Elton John, David Bowe, sharing tips from his setups and performances, CyberPunk2077, being an investor, and more. Ilan has been featured on and in NBC, ABC, Rolling Stone, Billboard, Reverb, Vice, American Songwriter, SPIN, Architectural Digest, Fast Company, Loudwire, PC Gamer, Hypebeast, New York Times, Alternative Press, and too many more to list. Accomplishing all this by 31 years old and Ilan being in the industry working for over 20 years makes us thrilled to see what he will achieve in the years to come.
