Hole: Will They Overcome Their Differences?

Advertising Information for vagmusic
Hole was an indie rock/grunge band that was formed in 1989. This band split up in 2002. The members of Hole were: Courtney Love (vocals), Eric Erlandson (guitar), Patty Schemel (drums until 1998), Kristen Ptaff (bass until 1994), Melissa Auf der Maur (Bass from 1995 to 2002) and Samantha Maloney (drums from 1998 to 2002). Pretty on the Inside, the first album of Hole was released on Caroline Records. The album was extremely successful and the band signed with Geffen Records and released eight more albums. In 1993, Hole released Live Through This, their first album on a major record label. Some of the songs included on this album are: “Miss World”, “Violet” and “Doll Parts.”  

Celebrity Skin was the most successful album of Hole but it was also their last. Billy Corgan of the Smashing Pumpkins was involved on the record as a songwriter and as a bass player on several tracks, which made Eric Erlandson feel displeased and uncomfortable. The three singles and videos that were released for this album are: “Malibu”, “Celebrity Skin” and “Awful.” The official break up of Hole took place in 2002 through a message that Courtney Love posted in the website of the band. Despite the split, Courtney Love, Melissa Auf der Maur, Eric Erlandson and Patty Schemel continued to work in the music industry through separate projects. Even though most of the members of this band left on bad terms with one another, some of them are willing to discuss a possible comeback.
