Courtney Love & Eric Erlandson Reconcile, Hole Reunion In The Works

Published On December 28, 2013 | By Brett Buchanan | 90's Rock, Featured, Grunge Report, Hole

After a decade of feuding, Hole co-founders Courtney Love and Eric Erlandson have reconciled and appear to be planning a Hole reunion for 2014. Love revived the Hole name from 2009-2011 with an all new lineup but abandoned the name last year. The classic 90′s Hole lineup of Courtney Love, Eric Erlandson, Melissa auf der Maur, and Patty Schemel briefly reunited for a short set last year to help promote Schemel’s new documentary but the bad blood appeared to be unresolved. Love claimed earlier this year that Erlandson had stolen Kurt Cobain’s guitars and that she would never reunite with him.

Last night Love posted this photo of herself with Erlandson with the message: “And this just happened @eric_erlandson @maindepowr @LouiseMensch @xMAdMx 2014 going to be a very interesting year xc.”

Love also posted on her Facebook a couple of days ago that she is looking to move past her grudges:

”I think at nearly 50 the basis of any relationship should be restraint and pragmatism before the big dramatic tsunami — shit I wish I knew this at 20, and to become best friends and to make sure your exes dont all hate you. its important to leave romances nicely — and its 2014 so im letting alot of grudges just go, i dont have time . . . none of it matters — thank you dave navvaroo [Dave Navarro] and peter mensch. (sic)”

She added in her post: ”So to everyone take my advice, lose the grudges and grudge matches. First of all youll make a lot more money if that doesnt incentivise you, youll just be happier and get kissed more. (sic)”

    Great. No point in visiting AltNation for the next year and a half, unless you feel like overdosing on this terrible Love woman and her insane-laden self-importance.

    • Courtney Rocks!

      You suck . Courtney rules

      • CL

        Really?

        • Courtney Rocks!

          yes really.

    I actually really liked Hole’s last album, but it will be nice to see Eric and Courtney revive the classic lineup.

  • j

    Interesting they are reuniting now, right when Nirvana got in the rock n roll hall of fame…
    I’m sure they are gonna beg to be a part of it…

  • Courtney Rocks!

    Courtney rules and rocks!

  • Mia

    I really hope they do reunite! A new Hole album with Courtney and Eric would be awesome, or even just a tour!

  • Anth

    I have no interest in Hole but if this helps MAdM get out there more (and make more solo projects more often), I’m all for it.

    • poptart

      It would be great to have Melissa out there performing and making music. I never had any interest in Hole, but always liked Melissa.

    I think Eric wants to bang her :) i dont blame him, she looks hot in this pic

  • RollingStoned

    Hole in one!

    Considering she’s never written a song by herself and has burned the bridge with Billy, what else could she do? Those new songs are not going to write themselves! Get busy Eric!

    • Courtney Rocks!

      Erm Live Through This alone is better than any Billy Corgan/ Pumpkin retards album.

      • JG566

        We all know where 75% of Live Through This came from.

        • Courtney Rocks!

          Kurt did not write Live Through This.

    • Scott

      That’s not true. She did write “Doll Parts”, “Retard Girl”, and “Never Go Hungry” all by herself. That said, Eric’s presence really completes their work.
