“As Long As I’m Accomplishing Something, Mentally I’m A-Ok”
Then Illan Rubin must be very okay, indeed. The San Diego-born musician is one of thoseguys that’s been accomplishing something since he was nine and he’s not slowed downthe pace one bit. The youngest performer to ever grace the stage at Woodstock (Rubinwas 11!), Illan Rubin is very much like a musical shark—he never stands still. Over the courseof his career the powerful and inventive drummer has played with Nine Inch Nails, Paramoreand Angels & Airwaves, and his own band The New Regime just put a new record out a few weeks ago.Even the global pandemic hasn’t slowed him down—Rubin’s been spending his time reading, writingnew music and learning the clarinet. Although his band’s tour with Silversun Pickups gotcancelled, Rubin’s not one to get down about these things—he just keeps making music. In thisconversation, Rubin talks to Alex about quarantine reading, his fascination with World War II,Trent Reznor’s perfect pitch and why it’s important to learn a new instrument.
