Auf Der Maur cools rumours of Hole reunion

Melissa Auf Der Maur

Melissa Auf Der Maur, former bassist with Hole, has played down suggestions that the band are about to reunite.

Courtney Love said earlier in the year that Hole’s classic lineup – featuring Love, Auf Der Maur, Eric Erlandson and Patty Schemel – would work together again following a series of successful jams.

Speaking to the Guardian however, Auf Der Maur said: “Courtney described it as, ‘We went on a date but we did not make out.’ That’s what I can say.”

“It was fucking beautiful to be in the same room with them for the first time in aeons. That was special – it was truly beautiful and there was a group hug. That’s as far as it’s gone. Now I’m back to being a mother and having a big old factory.”

Auf Der Maur co-runs the Basilica Hudson art centre, a converted factory in New York, with husband Tony Stone. As well as playing in Hole, she had a brief stint in The Smashing Pumpkins, and has released two albums under her own name: 2004’s Auf Der Maur, and 2010’s Out Of Our Minds.
