Courtney Love says she has no plans to reunite Hole for a retrospective run

Hole frontwoman Courtney Love wants her music to stay relevant. When asked about the possibility of a Hole reunion, while not completely saying “no,” Love explained she wouldn’t want any shows to simply offer a rollick into yesterday.

“I don’t want to get on the oldies circuit,” she told the Philippine Daily Inquirer. “I don’t need to do that for money. I want to put out music that is relevant today.”

In other news, Love is acting again. She’s slated to appear on the FX series “Sons of Anarchy” as a preschool teacher named Ms. Harrison.

“I thank [show creator] Kurt Sutter for taking a chance on me, bailing me out of actor jail, as we call it,” she said. “It takes a showrunner like Kurt to have the balls to do that. It’s now up to me to make it.”

Since Love hasn’t acted in more than a decade, her first take for “Sons of Anarchy” was a bit rusty. “My first time to act in 11 years, I choked on the first master take. I just choked,” she said. “I was trembling. I thank God I was across from someone as good as Katey Sagal. She hugged me and I got into her vibe. Every take got better and better. I don’t choke, man! And I choked! And I am not on anything.”
