According to grungebook.tumblr.com Courtney Love said the following about a reunion of Hole’s classic lineup when she participated in a Q&A with her former bandmates Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur, and Patty Schemel last night at the New York premiere of the Hit So Hard documentary:
“I do wanna say that if something’s not relevant I don’t wanna do it,” Love told the crowd. “So for me, y’know, as much as I love playing with Patty—and I would play with her in five seconds again, and everyone standing on this stage—if it’s not moving forward, I don’t wanna do it. That’s just my thing.” (At this point Eric Erlandson jokingly began walking offstage, to laughter from the audience.)
Patty Schemel had expressed hope yesterday that the classic Hole lineup would possibly take their reunion further after the Q&A at the Hit So Hard screening. Knowing Courtney’s unpredictability, I’ll bet we see a reunited Hole touring by the end of the year. After this quasi reunion I don’t see the public as being able to continue to buy her “new” Hole lineup.
