In honor of the 25th anniversary of Hole’s seminal album Live Through This, Courtney Love spoke to The Guardian and said of reforming and touring the record:
“We are definitely talking about it. There’s nothing wrong with honouring your past; I’ve just kind of discovered that. If you don’t, people will rewrite history and you will become an inconvenient woman.”
The band, of course, hasn’t performed with the classic line-up of Love, drummer Patty Schemel, guitarist Eric Erlandson, and bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur since 1998.
Auf der Maur has spoken about the band having “unfinished business”, and said she would “genuinely love to” reform the group.
“We’re older, we’re mellow,” she said, after revealing that she’d recently met up with her ex-bandmates. “I feel this would be the moment to do it. We did a few little gigs over the years but nothing substantial, which by the way I am quite happy about, to be honest.”
“Now it’s been exactly 20 years since I’ve left the band, and I want a piece of our glory back,” she continued. “Hole was a very good band, and I want to let everybody know it’s important that women in rock music also get remembered, even if they were in the shadow of their husband.”
Hmmm. Not sure if that last comment was a dig or if she was being supportive.
Either way, a big YESSSSS to a Hole reunion!
