Started in 1989 by Courtney Love, Hole is one of the most rough-around-the-edges alternative bands of the 90s. Members of the band often changed with each album, with Love remaining the only one to work on every Hole record. The band most iconic line-up:
- Courtney Love (vocals, rhythm guitar);
- Eric Erlandson (guitars);
- Melissa Auf der Maur (bass, backing vocals);
- Patty Schemel (drums).
After three successful albums, the group split in 2000 and Love pursued a solo career under her own name. In 2010, she regrouped Hole, remaining the only member from the original line-up, and released the album Nobody’s Daughter. The 4th Hole album was accompanied by a worldwide tour, which ended in 2013.
As of now, there are no plans for Hole to reunite, although Love reconvened with members from the original line-up in a number of occasions and mentioned the possibility of working with them again in the future.
