The ‘Celebrity Skin’ era line-up of Hole are not officially back together. Just FYI. Yes, I know everyone said they were last week, but it seems everyone jumped the gun a little.

The rumour came from a Courtney Love quote published by The Quietus, in which she said: “I started playing with Patty [Schemel] and Melissa [Auf Der Maur] and Eric [Erlandson], just to see how that was. We already played like three or four times in the last week”.

Played together they have, planned out their new lives together they have not. Speaking to The Telegraph, Love clarified: “We may have made out but there is no talk of marriage. It’s very frail, nothing might happen, and now the band are all flipping out with me [for mentioning it]”.

So, there you are. It may or may not happen. And if Courtney Love’s already annoyed everyone else before they’ve really done anything. Well, that sounds like business as usual. Let’s take it as a positive sign.

While she was in clarifying mood, Love also discussed the possible Broadway musical based on the life of her late husband Kurt Cobain. As previously reported, she said that the project was “very likely” to go ahead, as long as it meets her standards for such a project.

“It’s more a play, conceived by a brilliant team”, Love said. “I can’t name names, but when you hear who is possibly involved, it takes on a new dimension. Otherwise it’s Vegas rubbish, and I will never allow it. There will be no jazz hands on ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’!”

Well, that’s one of the suggestions we made last week shot down. She didn’t deny that Ben Elton was writing it though.
