Former Hole bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur isn’t the only one questioning the legitimacy of Courtney Love’s announcement that Hole is reuniting as the backup band for her forthcoming Nobody’s Daughter album. Whereas Auf Der Maur was just “a little confused as to what the plan with that is,” guitarist Eric Erlandson doesn’t see any grey area: “The way I look at it, there is no Hole without me,” Erlandson told Spin’s David Peisner. “To put it blunt. Just on a business level.”
Erlandson added that he hasn’t been contacted at all about the supposed reunion, but he’s “open to discussions regarding the real Hole.”
Hey, maybe Love’s just taking a cue from her pal Billy Corgan, taking the band name and doing as she pleases. Meanwhile, she’s trying way too hard to bait Ryan Adams into a Twitter fight, dissing his poetry and alleged spending habits. Remember that whole thing?
