It was bound to happen. Nardwuar vs. Skrillex. The meeting of two unique personalities.
Sonny John Moore, aka Skrillex, has come a long way since his Mac hard drive crashed before a sold-out gig at the Majestic Theatre two years ago. In the aftermath of the show cancellation that night, the bewildered Skrillex hid in a corner of the venue while angry fans booed, nearly erupting into a full scale riot.
Evidently due to the reliability of Apple Macs, Skrillex had never backed up his hard drive which basically contained his entire show plus new material. Just think, lose the hard drive that night and we wouldn't have the Skrillex of today! The laptop was sent to the Madison Apple store who in turn shipped it to Seattle where the Apple experts eventually recovered the hard drive. These days, I'm sure Skrillex is using the cloud for backup with a paid employee dedicated to the task.
