The many faces of Courtney Love

I could probably start a separate blog dedicated to the frequent blog dispatches from everyone's favorite crazy blonde this side of Anne Heche, Courtney Love.

While I'm not sure that Courtney has ever done the naked dazed Anne Heche street walk of shame, I'm pretty sure she's done everything else, and I love her for that.

I'll admit that I wasn't really a huge Courtney/Hole fan in the 90s - frankly, I was busy listening to Nirvana albums, and after that, Foo Fighters albums.

Courtney Love's blog entries though, are like seeing a small puppy in flames - you can't quite look away, and in the case of the blog entries, you'll find some guaranteed and frequent entertainment.

I've gotten to appreciate the 90s output of Love more and more as the years pass, and I was interested to see this recent blog post featuring some professionally shot live performances from 2007.

I found Love's stage persona more interesting than some of the songs - one moment channeling Dramarama frontman John Easdale during a performance of "Samantha," a bit of Iggy in "PCH," and during the last one? Well, I guess that's just Courtney being Courtney.

Courtney writes about the three performances, and I particularly like her insight on Samantha:

i dont think youll even know Samantha, its more "Spanglemaker" meets "This Corrosion" meets that trent f*ck you like an animal song meets a tad of "Enter Sandman" cos one must always have the ability to open for Metallica and have at least a shot at kicking major ass


Read the rest (and there's a LOT to read) here. Note: paragraph breaks are optional

    Had to laugh at “a small puppy in flames…” sick as that may be…

    I was into Hole in the 90’s as well. Dug their sound and rawness of Love’s voice. I will have to check her blog out. Thanks for the info!!!!

    You… you like Courtney? Yeah, she’s fascinating – in a can’t look away car wreck kinda way – but man, she pisses me off rightly.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    Louie – I was feeling warped :-)

    Burg – knowing that she pisses you off…I like her even more now…lol

    I can’t explain it….I’m impressed that she’s apparently pulled her life together after all of these years. “together” in CL terms anyway.

  • Burgo

    Anyone who rails against Ryan Adams like this (and you know how much I like Ryan Adams) is going to get the hairy eyeball from me.

    Never liked her when I was into Cobain back in the day either.

  • Matt Wardlaw

    you and your hairy eyeballs scare me.

    That the Zune concentrates on being a Portable
    Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine.
    Maybe in the future it’ll do even better
    in those areas, conversely for now it’s a fantastic way to
    organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer
    in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps.
    If those sound more compelling, perhaps its your best choice.
