Biography

Jerome Dillon is a professional musician, best known for his tenure as drummer with industrial rock group Nine Inch Nails from 1999-2005.

He was born July 16, 1969 in Columbus, Ohio and attended Northland High School until 1987.

In 1994, Dillon joined pop-rock band Howlin’ Maggie. Despite achieving local fame, the group eventually disbanded. In 1999, while visiting family in Columbus, he was advised by his manager to audition for Trent Reznor’s Nine Inch Nails. Reznor had since parted ways with long-time drummer and collaborator Chris Vrenna. Dillon recalls, ” asked if I was interested in being in Nine Inch Nails. I would have been interested in being houseboy in the studio.” Dillon submitted a sample of his work, and was contacted shortly after with the opportunity to audition in front of Reznor. “I thought it was going to be the same thing all over again. Instead, I walked in and it was more of just a conversation with me and the band. They liked where I was coming from musically, and they thought it was conducive to the direction of the new record”. He was featured as the band’s live drummer during touring in support of The Fragile. Additionally, Dillon has worked with Reznor in the studio on subsequent releases including Things Falling Apart, And All That Could Have Been, and With Teeth.

Touring in support of With Teeth, Dillon served as drummer from March through September of 2005.
