Melissa Auf der maur biography (bio):
Melissa Auf der maur is a Canadian rock musician of Franco-Swiss ancestry, who currently resides in Montreal, Quebec. The name "Maur", pronounced to rhyme with "power", is derived from the German word for wall (Mauer), thus her full surname can be literally translated as "On the Wall".
On February 2, 2006, MTV.com reported that Billy Corgan and Jimmy Chamberlin had signed a new management deal with the Front Line Management, with a spokesperson confirming they had signed under the name "Smashing Pumpkins". In response, Auf der Maur said in a separate interview, "As long as Billy has Jimmy, he can make the essential Pumpkins record, I'm sure." When asked of her involvement, she said she was not participating in any reunion plans, but was quoted as saying, "my services are always there to play my favorite songs. If D'arcy is not available, I'm always happy to be second in line." On April 20, 2006, it was officially announced on www.smashingpumpkins.com that the band was back together writing material, and the site was updated on July 28 to mention they were in the studio. To this point, Corgan and Chamberlin are the only ones verified as members of the band. Auf der Maur has not commented on her plans with the band, if any.
In 2006, Auf Der Maur was included in Blender magazine's hottest women of rock alongside Joan Jett, Liz Phair, and fellow Hole-member Courtney Love.
