Seems that the Hole reunion is back on again, according to Paper's new cover story on Courtney Love:

As for a Hole reunion, Love is optimistic that she, Eric Erlandson, Melissa Auf der Maur and Patty Schemel will play in 2015, and she insists that her strained relationship with the band is a thing of the past. “It’s more important for me to act right now than to play rock ‘n’ roll,” she says. “Me and Melissa and Patty and Eric have rehearsed a few times. In order to pull that off, we’d have to make some music that’s relevant to now, and we’d have to get a modern producer. I’m not going to do the oldies circuit. My relationships with Melissa, Patty and Eric are all great. At this point in my life, no one is my enemy. Any grudges or issues with that past? I’m done with it.”

Love takes a drag off her cigarette and continues.

"The only person I’m concerned about is Corgan. I’m like, What is your problem?

I lost about $27 million.* I know that’s a lifetime of money to most people, but I’m a big girl, it’s rock & roll, it’s Nirvana money, I had to let it go. I make enough to live on, I’m financially solvent, I focus on what I make now.

*It’s unclear whether she said $27 million or $29 million in the original interview. Either way…

While she’s back collaborating with Hole’s original guitar player, Eric Erlandson, Courtney [Love] ruled out a reunion concert tour with the band. ‘I don’t want to get on the oldies circuit,’ said the singer-actress… ‘I don’t need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today. [Being] one of the last chicks in a rock ‘n’ roll band is a weird place to be. It’s scary not to be selling out.’
