Hole Reunites With Classic Mid-’90s Lineup

    In 2009, grunge icon Courtney Love reunited Hole for a string of live dates and an album that ensued, Nobody’s Daughter, albeit with herself as the sole member from the band’s classic ’90s lineup. Today we’ve learned that founding guitarist Eric Erlandson, bass player Melissa Auf der Maur, and drummer Patty Schemel have been practicing with Love, and all four are currently working on new music together.
