Corgan's Role In New Hole Album Up In Air

June 18, 1997 12:00 AM ET

Is Billy Corgan off the new Hole project? "At this point, no one is really sure what his role will be [in producing the new album]," said Jim Merlis, Hole's publicist at Geffen Records. Merlis admitted that the band hasn't even gone into the studio to begin recording. At the earliest, they expect the album to be out in late fall. Courtney Love, Hole's singer, told MTV News at the premiere for Batman & Robin that she and Corgan had "burned each other out." Love is referring to their relationship in which Corgan would be the executive producer on the project. And according to Merlis, everything Love told MTV is absolutely true. By the way, he added, "we stand by our girl."

“Nightshift”

The Commodores | 1984

The year after soul legends Marvin Gaye and Jackie Wilson died, songwriter Dennis Lambert asked members of the Commodores to give him a tape of ideas. "And the one from Walter Orange has this wonderful bass line," said co-writer Franne Golde. "Plus the lyric, 'Marvin, he was a friend of mine' ... Within 10 minutes, we had decided it should be something like a modern R&B version of 'Rock 'n' Roll Heaven,' and I just said, 'Nightshift.'" This tribute to the recently deceased musicians was the band's only hit without Lionel Richie, who had left for a solo career.
