From Los Angeles. Led by sometime actress Courtney Love (vocals/guitar) with Eric Erlandson (guitar), Kristen Pfaff (bass) and Patty Schemel (drums). Love is the widow of the late Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. She was also married previously to Jim Moreland of the band Leaving Trains. Love was in an early band that included future members of Babes In Toyland and L7 called Sugar Baby Doll, as well as singing with an early version of Faith No More. Love's real name is Love Michelle Harrison. Pfaff died of a heroin overdose in 1994 and was replaced by Melissa Auf Der Maur (bass) who later joined Smashing Pumpkins. The legitimacy of Hole's work has often been in question, the first album was raw, the second was mysteriously Nirvana-like, causing speculation that Cobain had a strong hand in it. This was later proved when demos surfaced featuring Cobain. The latest album also has had a strong hand from Smashing Pumpkins leader Billy Corgan which Love later went on to deny but Corgan refutes very publicly. Love still has much to prove it seems. Begging contractual problems, Love went on a protracted lawsuit with her music label which also tied up a proposed Nirvana box set. She ended the band after settling the suit and has since begun a few aborted projects culminating in a brilliant solo disc that failed to ignite the public's attention. Hole returned in 2010 for another go round, albeit this time without any original mmembers other than Love. 1990-98/2010-present..
