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.’
Hole’s Live Through This was released 20 years ago today, on April 12, 1994.
