Is Courtney Love planning to reunite with her bandmates from Hole?
As Hole’s grunge-classic Live Through This celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, the band’s frontwoman Courtney Love hints that it’s a solid possibility.
“We are definitely talking about it,” says Love in an interview with The Guardian. “There’s nothing wrong with honouring your past; I’ve just kind of discovered that. If you don’t, people will rewrite history and you will become an inconvenient woman.”
The 1994 album (which has long been rumoured to feature significant contributions from Love’s husband, late Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain), marked a distinct departure from the band’s earlier hardcore sound, and wound up becoming both a critical and commercial success.
For Love, however, the album’s release came about at a particularly bleak time, just one week after Cobain’s suicide at the couple’s Seattle home.
“When it came out, there was so much horrible other stuff happening in my life that I didn’t even think about it,” Love says of the disconnect she felt of having a hit album climbing up the charts while her personal life crumbled.
Looking back at the album now, Love says “Live Through This” remains reflective of where she was at during that period of her life.
“It’s really about: ‘Do I have something to say?’” Love says of the album’s tracks. “And when you’re young you have a lot to say.”
