3.17.99 15:45 EST Hole's Auf Der Maur Offers Backstage Glimpse Of Ill-Fated Hole/Manson Tour

It was fun while it lasted... at least for those with ringside seats.

Hole dropped off their co-headlining tour with Marilyn Manson early this week (see "Hole Walks Out On Tour, Manson Injury Postpones Several Dates"), but before the Marilyn Manson/Hole tour went into meltdown, Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur captured some of the fun for us. Armed with a small hand-held camera, Auf Der Maur roamed the backstage during her band's brief stint with Manson documenting the proceedings for MTV News.

She caught it all: the pre-show rituals, the inter-band patter, the deli trays, and you can see it too right here in RealVideo. If you'd rather see it on a bigger screen, you can catch Melissa's handy work Wednesday night at 7 p.m. as part of a special edition of "MTV News 1515" devoted to the ill-fated tour.
