Courtney Love has gone back on recent claims that she will not revive the classic line up of Hole, saying that she will as long as the band make "music that's relevant to now" with a "modern producer."

Earlier this year Love said that while she is working with Hole guitarist Eric Erlandson again, she doesn't want to tour with her old band and that she specifically did not want to be part of the "oldies circuit."

However, in a new interview with Paper Magazine, she clarifies that this does not mean the band won't get back together at all.

"It's more important for me to act right now than to play rock'n' roll," said Love, who will appear in the forthcoming series of US TV show Sons Of Anarchy. "Me and Melissa [Auf der Maur] and Patty [Schemel] and Eric [Erlandson] have rehearsed a few times."

Explaining what the reunion will require, Love continued: "We have to make some music that’s relevant to now, and we'd have to get a modern producer. My relationships with Melissa, Patty, and Eric are all great. At this point in my life, no one is my enemy. Any grudges or issues with that past? I’m done with it."

Love recently said that she hopes filming will start on a mooted Kurt Cobain biopic within the next year and that she won't be deciding who will play her late husband.

Love previously revealed to NME that she has ambitious plans for her late husband's legacy, including a documentary and stage play. Love stated that it has been fans' reactions to the possibility of a stage production involving Cobain's story which has made it now "very likely" to happen.
