Hole was an American alternative rock band that formed in Los Angeles, California in 1989. The band was fronted by singer-songwriter Courtney Love (vocals, rhythm guitar), who formed Hole with lead guitarist Eric Erlandson. The band had a revolving line-up of bassists and drummers, with their most prolific being drummer Patty Schemel, and bassists Kristen Pfaff and Melissa Auf der Maur. Hole achieved considerable commercial and critical success throughout the 1990s, initially releasing singles through independent labels in L.A. and debuting with their caustic noise rock-influenced ''Pretty on the Inside'' (1991), and later gaining critical acclaim with their 1994 album ''Live Through This''. As Hole progressed into the later 1990s, they incorporated elements of power pop into their sound. The band's third album, ''Celebrity Skin'' (1998), fused hard rock with various pop elements, contrasting to their previous styles. ''Celebrity Skin'' went on to be the band's most commercially successful album, garnering them immense critical attention as well as several Grammy nominations. The group officially disbanded in 2002 and its members began solo careers and other projects. In 2009, Love announced she was reforming Hole as the sole returning member. Erlandson, however, stated that no reunion could take place contractually without mutual involvement between Love and Erlandson. On January 1, 2010, a website promoting Hole's latest release, ''Nobody's Daughter'', was launched, with links to various social media pages including Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and MySpace. Despite the dispute between Erlandson and Love, ''Nobody's Daughter'' was released in April 2010 and the band toured extensively in Europe and North America in support of the record. In November 2012, Love stated per a Twitter account that she was working now under her own name as a solo artist, and that "Hole is dead".Wikipedia This entry is from Wikipedia, the user-contributed encyclopedia.
