Firstly working on Trent Reznors new disk, then a summer tour with Smashing Pumpkins.( Did you catch Pumpkins bass-Miss wearing Dame Dorsey style devils horns at the Bilbao show in Spain Recently?) Most recently Mike was asked by Marilyn Manson to do the tour duty. They invited him over to talk at their recording studio in LA. It seems Mike walked into the studio green-room to find the band hunched around a tv monitor watching, would you believe, the Ziggy Stardust Farewell Concert.Mike made his apologies and explained that he's pretty tied up with the Pumpkins at the moment and then an album he's planning to have produced with Davids help and bid his farewells. Must say, a unique cover of Golden Years from the new Bad Boy. How does David feel about the young-bloods queing to work with his band. "I'm very supportive of their eagerness to soak up every experience they can. When I'm offered an interesting working situation, I generally jump at it. I would expect my friends to do the same. Anyhow, Nin, the Pumpkins and ourselves get on really well. They're all good people."
