Filter: Fighting the Algorithm

Richard Patrick opens up about his car crash fixation, how Larry Flynt helped him through puberty, the shifting meaning of his songs and his band’s new album, The Algorithm.

Richard Patrick is the man behind Filter, the band best known for their 1990s rock radio anthems “Hey Man Nice Shot” and “Take a Picture.”  The singer/guitarist/songwriter has come a long way since working as a hired-gun touring guitarist for Nine Inch Nails. Over the last three decades, Patrick and Filter have released seven studio records, with the band’s eighth album The Algorithm coming in late August. caught up with Patrick from his home studio to discuss a number of topics, including how he transitioned from being a side man to a leader, his sobriety, songwriting and that one time he met Larry Flynt. Are you okay being interviewed by us?

Richard Patrick: Of course! I ran into Larry Flynt years ago. Twenty-something years ago. We were introduced and he said, “Ahh, Filter. I helped you guys through puberty, didn’t I?” I said, “Absolutely, sure did. Yes, sir.” 

Do you remember the first time you ever saw HUSTLER Magazine? 

I was young, and it was glorious! I saw some beautiful ladies. I saw enough to help me get through puberty, just like Larry Flynt said. The sexual revolution was part of his doing, for sure.
