Courtney Love to Reunite Original Hole Lineup?
Courtney Love is no stranger to controversy (she’s currently in the process of working on her memoir…sort of?), but she’s always better when she channels her energy into something. This time, it’s something good—Love has just revealed in an interview with Paper Magazine that she’s getting the band back together—Hole, that is. Love, Melissa Auf der Maur, Patty Schemel, and Eric Erlandson have already had rehearsals for a tentative (isn’t everything tentative with Courtney Love?) 2015 reunion. Love expressed that she wants to “put out music that is relevant today… It’s scary not to be selling out.” We sure hope they do sell out—it’d be very interesting to see how Hole would fare in today’s musical landscape. In case it doesn’t work out, Love has some other projects in the works, including casting the lead for the Kurt Cobain biopic and an appearance on the final season of Sons of Anarchy this year.
Courtney Love used to be the queen of the grudge, but it seems as though she’s given most of that toxic energy up. She and Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl have resolved what was the one of the longest-running feuds in rock (they squabbled over ownership of basically everything Nirvana did after Cobain died in 1994) this April at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremony last April—they even hugged on stage! One person Love still doesn’t, well, love? Former Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan. The two started their beef over some song licensing issues and had it out publicly on Twitter—the more things change, the more they stay the same.
