Has Courtney wrecked Hole reunion?

Courtney Love admits she may have wrecked the chances of reuniting the classic Hole lineup by talking the idea up in the press.

Last week she revealed she’d been rehearsing with Melissa Auf Der Maur, Eric Erlandson and Patty Schemel, marking the first time they’d worked together since 2002.

Now she’s told the Telegraph: “We may have made out, but there’s no talk of marriage. It’s very frail.

“Nothing might happen, and now the band are all flipping out with me.”

Despite that, Love insists she’s learned her lesson after a series of public outbursts landed her in trouble in recent months, saying: “After I get a spanking, or maybe three, I tend to be good.”

The weekend marked the 20th anniversary of husband Kurt Cobain’s death, while he and his band Nirvana are to be inducted into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame on Thursday.

She’s working on a Broadway musical based on his live, of which she says: “It’s more a play, conceived by a brilliant team. 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.”

Love tours the UK in her solo capacity next month:

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
