CLEVELAND — Editor's note: Video at the top of this story is from Jan. 15, 2020.

On the eve of Nine Inch Nails’ formal induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the band hosted a live Q&A session with their fans Friday afternoon.

All seven Nine Inch Nails members -- Alessandro Cortini, Robin Finck, Danny Lohner, Trent Reznor, Atticus Ross, Ilan Rubin and Chris Vrenna -- were scheduled to join the conversation, which you can watch below. They're each expected to share stories and reminisce about their musical journey that stretches back more than three decades.

The band, which got its start in Cleveland back in 1988, has been eligible for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame since 2015.
