Daniel Patrick Lohner (born December 13, 1970) is a Texas-born musician who has worked with Nine Inch Nails, A Perfect Circle, The Damning Well and Black Light Burns. Currently, he is working on Maynard James Keenan's side-project, Puscifer. On September 10, 2009, As NIN was playing the final show of their farewell tour in Los Angeles, Lohner sent out a message thanking the band for the "coattail ride", as well as the apparent "rim job". On November 7, 2020, Lohner and NIN were inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame. Lohner (along with Richard Patrick, Charlie Clouser and Chris Vrenna) joined NIN onstage for six songs at the Cleveland show of the NIN 2022 tour.
Lohner joined NIN in 1993, after having secured his own audition. He stated that NIN was his favorite band and he was desperate to be involved in some way. He was acquainted with a mutual friend of Trent Reznor, who then put Lohner in touch with John A. Malm, Jr. around the same time that Richard Patrick had left the band.
Lohner has shared songwriting credits for the NIN songs "The Perfect Drug", "Somewhat Damaged", "Even Deeper" and "And All That Could Have Been". He appears in the music videos for "March Of The Pigs", "Hurt" (live), "Eraser" (live), "Wish" (live), "The Perfect Drug", "Into The Void", and "The Becoming" (Still).
