The biggest surprise at last weekend's Hole concert at the Viper Room in Los Angeles wasn't the acoustic interpretations of material from "Celebrity Skin," but the band's decision to cover not one, but two Guns N' Roses songs.
When MTV News' Chris Connelly caught up with the band backstage after the show, frontwoman Courtney Love and bassist Melissa Auf Der Maur weren't shy about their affection for the long-dormant band and its mercurial lead singer, Axl Rose.
"We miss them, right?" Love posed to the rest of the band.
"Yeah, we were paying homage," answered drummer Samantha Maloney as Love and Auf Der Maur broke into an a cappella rendition of "Sweet Child O' Mine." [Check out MTV's website for a 28.8 RealVideo file]
