Paul Cantin of JAM! Showbiz chatted with former Hole/Smashing Pumpkins bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur about her debut solo album in which she received a lot of help from friends like drummers John Stanier (Helmet) and Brant Bjork (Kyuss) and guitarists Steve Durand (Tinker), Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker The Star), James Iha (Smashing Pumpkins), and Eric Erlandson (Hole). “I am so lucky I have all these talented friends. It is not too hard to find musicians who are available to play. It just so happens the most generous people are also the best and were willing to play,” she says.
