Hole (band)

Hole was a musical group, formed in 1989 and (officially) disbanded in 2002, fronted by Courtney Love and co-founded by Eric Erlandson.

After a number of releases on independent record labels Hole released their major label debut "Live Through This[?]" (1994) shortly after the suicide death of Love's husband Kurt Cobain.

Hole's band members have changed frequently over the years, the line-up of Hole's last album "Celebrity Skin" (1998) was Love (lead vocals), Melissa Auf der Maur (bass), Eric Erlandson (guitars), and Patty Schemel (drums).

Although Love's flamboyant personality and controversial statements have often overshadowed the reception of Hole's music, it should be stressed that Hole's band members comprised some of the finest musicians in the world. Both Erlandson and Auf der Maur excelled in their instruments, and Patty Schemel has to be counted among the top-five female drummers in the world.
