After shooting down Hole reunion rumors, Courtney Love confirmed that the reformation is once again back on track, this time around for 2015.

"It's more important for me to act right now than to play rock 'n' roll," she told Paper Magazine. "Me and Melissa [Auf der Maur] and Patty [Schemel] and Eric [Erlandson] have rehearsed a few times.

Focusing on the working approach, Courtney stressed that it's crucial to follow the latest music trends.

"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," she said.

Speaking of past grudges, Courtney raged at Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan for a little bit, saying, "The only person I'm concerned about is Corgan [when it comes to past grudges]. I'm like, what is your problem?"

As her manager said that the interview is over, Love insisted to continue, adding, "No. You can say that. I just wish he’d mellow out. That's all. We're older. Get over it."

    Billy Corgan makes himself look pretty bad when even Love insists he mellow out and act his age.
    Call me crazy, but a reunion with the original lineup may be pretty good. Melissa is a hell of a bassist and Erlandsson is great guitar player. I'll be looking for this.
    "Any grudges or issues with that past? I'm done with it," she then proceeds to rant about Billy Corgan.
    No amount of money is worth trying to "manage" her. I'm assuming that she has no publicist other than herself? That would be another impossible job.
    HOLE-Y COW, this is awesome news!ROCK ON COURTNEY LOVE WOOHOOO!!!!It would be awesome if Miley Cyrus appeared randomly at one of her stops all grunged up , and they both performed Smells like teen spirit! hopefuly she does that at one of the seattle shows!Miley Cyrus already nailed it by herself a few years back. it would be GREAT homage to the God of Rock n Roll Kurt Cobain!!maybe if Dave and Krist are in town they can join in, id be ok with it. they're still pretty good musicians, even though they were just Kurt's bandmates while in nrivana, but it'd be great to add to the homage behind miley and courtney rocking the stage.
    This is the worst troll ever...It's actually quite sad how hard you have tried to troll.
    The fact that you commented period, means it's successful. Just dislike and move along, son. you got nothing important to add. lol
    Literally everything else we know about Hole/Courtney Love aside, "Nobody's Daughter" sucked noodles (to quote Bender B. Rodriguez). If nothing else, that's enough for me not to care about this one bit.
    I actually like Hole, but not interested in new material, I'd go to see her if she were to play stuff off of Celebrity Skin, or Live Through This... RIP KRISTEN PFAFF
    If she gets her ass in the studio with Melissa, Eric, and Patty, I think there'd be dynamite. They had an amazing synergy back in the day, especially Courtney and Eric— a super dynamic songwriting partnership. I don't give a shit what anyone says, Hole was an amazing band. They're my favorite band ever and I think she's one of the best songwriters of her era. Her most recent backing band is good, but they don't have the spark that made her/Hole's earlier work so great. It's not their fault, but it's just not there. Another problem is that she doesn't play guitar anymore, so she's relying on her current guitarist, Micko, and, while he's a great player (better than her by miles), it's just not the same— she was never a great guitarist, but she had her own style that he cannot recreate live (I know, I've seen her live with him twice), and I think her guitar playing was integral to her songwriting. She didn't play guitar on Nobody's Daughter, and you can tell— the songs just don't sound like they're coming from her, even with her vocals. It's not that they're bad songs, but they're just not as... electric.
