Pixies Found A Perfect Recommendation From Josh Freese
Freese worked with Lenchantin on A Perfect Circle's debut album Mer De Noms and hers was the only name he came up with when pal Santiago asked him to recommend potential bass players for the Pixies. Freese has also worked with Weezer, Daughtry, The Vandals and Nine Inch Nails, among others.
And in an interview with RVA, Santiago also takes a swipe at departed bass player Kim Shattuck, who he refers to as unprofessional. He says: "Paz is awesome. She's a professional. She does her homework. She learned the lyrics without even being asked. She's flawless as a bass player and as a singer. She's got great manners too and we welcome her with big open arms. Hopefully, she loves us more than we love her.
"We got in touch with her through a recommendation from a great friend of mine, Josh Freese. He's a great drummer and he played with Paz in A Perfect Circle." more.
