A new photo of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain with legendary former Smashing Pumpkins and Hole bassist Melissa auf der Maur at the Basilica Hudson in New York has surfaced.
Courtney Love reunited with her former Hole bandmate Melissa auf der Maur at the Basilica Hudson in New York a couple of weeks ago at an event honoring Love’s career. Frances Bean Cobain was in attendance, and Michael Stipe made an appearance via video since he was too sick to attend the event.
Love and auf der Maur had only performed together one other time since Hole’s classic lineup split in 1999, a one off reunion of Hole’s 90’s classic lineup in New York in April 2012. Love announced in 2014 that Hole’s classic lineup had plans for a full fledged reunion 2015, but the reunion fell apart as Love changed her mind.
Melissa auf der Maur recently told Stereogum, “I’ve never been one for reunions and I’ve never jumped at that opportunity when Hole have brought it up or there have been invitations to do so. But I had a revelation, really simple. It’s the 20th anniversary of when I left Hole, when we put out our last record. Next year is the 25th anniversary of Live Through This. We have, until now, not done reunions.”
