Courtney Love rules out Hole reunion


Courtney Love has said that another Hole comeback isn’t on the table and has completely ruled it out.

Love has previously flirted with the chances of Hole reuniting and told The Guardian in 2019: “We are definitely talking about it. There’s nothing wrong with honouring your past.” Meanwhile, last year she told NME that a reunion was “something I’d love to do”.

The Hole singer has now had a change of heart. In a new interview with Vogue this week, Love has ruled out “a proper Hole reunion”, and said it “absolutely not” happen.

She continued: “And you guys have gotta get over it. Our old manager Peter Mensch calls once a year to ask about a reunion: ‘Hey, just doing my thing I do every year with you and Jimmy Page.’ And I’m so honored to be in that company, but it’s just not gonna happen.

“We’re all really good friends and Melissa [Auf der Maur] and I are especially close – we talk every day. But Eric [Erlandson] is kinda off-the-grid right now – I think he’s in Japan literally becoming a monk. I’m not even kidding. Melissa, Patty, and I think he’s become a monk or something on that level of aestheticism.”

Hole reunited initially for a comeback show in 2012, but a full reunion never occurred. Then, two years later, photos were shared by the group rehearsing on social media, but again — no reunion happened.
