about the Patricks...
26 August 2003 | by (HoBroken) – See all my reviews

To correct the earlier comment on Robert Patrick being in NIN: It was Robert's brother, Richard, not Robert. Richard Patrick, last I checked, was still in the band Filter, if he is not by now the only member. It was Robert who was in T2, the X-Files, etc. and I think it is him in the Gave Up video. But I don't think he was ever in the band. Richard left the band sometime between Broken and The Downward Spiral, if I remember correctly.
