Last week, Courtney Love announced sort of giddily that Hole were getting back together to finish work on her long-gestating solo album, Nobody’s Daughter. Melissa Auf Der Maur, former member of Hole, however says that it’s not really a reunion, because all she was called to do was to sing harmony on the album.
“I think you can’t take a Hole reunion thing that lightly. It’s gonna take a little more organizing than just ‘I’ll come and sing some backups and then we got Hole.’ I don’t know what to say about [the situation]. I’m a little confused as to what the plan with that is. All I can tell you is that I like singing ooos, ahs, and la-la-las behind her voice.”
So, apparently the Hole “reunion” ain’t quite a reunion thus far. But Love told everyone last week that the band would be touring next year, so maybe that’s what she meant by a “reunion.” I’m going to take a risk here and say that maybe Courtney Love doesn’t exactly have a grasp on what’s happening with Hole.
