[I want] someone who can play ok, and stand in front of 30,000 people, take off her shirt and have 'fuck you' written on her tits. If you're not afraid of me and you're not afraid to fucking say it, send a letter. No more pussies, no more fake girls, I want a whore from hell.
The new and improved (Not to mention the most lucrative incarnation of the band) didn't last long. The new and improved Hole only stuck around long enough to record one album maximum before breaking up without ever touring to support the album. A fourth album was recorded with a completely revamped lineup with only Courtney Love as the only female member of the originally female dominated band. That version broke up too. So now there's the chance that the classic (The band's third and most lucrative album to date Celebrity Skin) lineup consisting of Eric Erlandson, Patty Schemel, Courtney Love and Melissa auf der Maur might reunite. Of course, that would everybody actually being able to be in the same room at the same time without World War Three erupting in the process. Still, anything is possible as long as the dream is still alive.
