“I started playing with Patty and Melissa and Eric, just to see how that was,” Love told The Quietus on April 1. “We already played like three or four times in the last week.” And I doubt this was an April Fool’s joke. Love has seemed desperate to get back into the public eye, from doing her solo musical thing, to starting a YouTube channel, to attempting to find Malaysian Airlines Flight 370.
That’s not the only project that Courtney Love has in the works; she is also reportedly getting closer to green-lighting a musical based on the life of Kurt Cobain. “After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fan mail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality,” Courtney Love said, “both Frances and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen.”
Now, a Broadway musical on Kurt Cobain would probably draw an audience. But a Hole reunion? Not as much. It’s not like Hole doesn’t have their fans and those who yearn for ’90s nostalgia but the majority of people probably won’t be flocking to their local concert hall to hear the band play “Celebrity Skin,” “Malibu,” or “Doll Parts.”
You have to wonder if the Hole reunion is promoted by Courtney Love wanting to stay in the public eye, the other members missing the “good old days,” or with fans writing to them for a reunion. Perhaps it’s a bit of all three?
Would you go to see Courtney Love and a Hole reunion?
