In a new interview with the Hollywood Reporter about his upcoming book Letters to Kurt, former Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson said Courtney Love reached out to him to make new music together, but things didn’t work out.  The classic Hole 90’s lineup of Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur, and Patty Schemel briefly reunited for a Q&A at the premiere of Schemel’s film Hit So Hard last year.  Since 2009 Courtney has been touring and releasing music under the Hole name with a new lineup:

Erlandson said he hasn’t talked to Love about the book; the former colleagues clashed over control of Hole after the group’s 2002 breakup. He was not included in Hole’s 2010 album, Nobody’s Daughter, though Love has since asked him to make music together again.

But Erlandson wasn’t feeling it, saying, “I felt like there was no transformation in our relationship at all.” He’s on good terms with former Hole bandmates Patty Schemel and Melissa Auf der Maur.

    I love her.

    God Courtney sucks. She had her husband killed, she lies about killing her daughter’s pets, she is strung out still, and she cannot write her own music and I think she has trouble with lyrics too. Her private twitter acct shows that she asked fans for ideas. Then she made that goddamn amazon wish list. Then she posted a bunch of photos of bank transfers. 3M, 1M, 500K, 1M. All from 2001 and 2002. He squanders money and then wants fans to buy her $22k chandeliers?!? Seriously mentally ill. I tweeted her that she has never written lyrics, music or written poetry and is talentless opportunist. She got mad and tweeted me back. It was funny. I saved the screen capture so I can look at it for giggles. Anyway, Courtney is a vile being and infectious human waste.

    Junkie, we don’t care. hahahah, and you’ll be sick with this stupid anger.
    Go, Courtney!

    That’s too bad they couldn’t resolve their differences and make music together again. Hole with Courtney and Eric= AWESOME.

  • GrungeAttack

    Love is just trying her best, we all have bad times and are not perfect.

    I really wish Eric would work with her again but that’s not going to happen, sad.

    Yeah, Courtney will be “reaching out” to Eric again soon–as in trying to grab his wallet because of the Letters to Kurt book. Cuz, you know, she owns everything Cobain now.
