Lost soul

Courtney Love / Hole, "Dear God", off the 2010 Hole album Nobody's Daughter. This particular song was written and produced by Linda Perry, who apparently had befriended Courtney during the period where Courtney was in and out of jail and rehab on drug charges. The album sold abysmally, nobody cares about Courtney Love or Hole anymore and the album is too sad and painful for most people to enjoy. Courtney got what she wanted -- she became famous, perhaps infamous, and now what?

  1. It's too bad. I thought "Celebrity Skin" was one of the best albums of the 90's.

  2. God? Well, fuck that.

  3. Yes, Marquis, those two Nirvana-inspired Hole albums -- Live Through This and Celebrity Skin -- were *GOOD*. For a while, at least, Courtney harnessed her demons and had them pulling their weight. But she was always teetering on the edge, ever since she was a teen in juvie... and everything just came crashing down in the end.

    Courtney had the reputation of a backstabbing bitch and major asshole from early on in her career. But having learned something about her childhood and the situation with Kurt where you had two lost children trying to keep each other alive and failing... all I can feel is sad for her.
