Want To Play Bass For Courtney Love?

Courtney Love plans to release new music in the near future.  It will be solo work, not music from Hole.  While looking to put together a band, Love attempted to include at least one more woman.  She tells Bust:

“I put an ad on Craigslist that said, ‘Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur.’ I got exactly one response. There’s just not a lot of chick bass players.”

While Courtney Love is not using the "Hole" name for this new music, she did use it for 2010's Nobody's Daughter, despite being the only member returning to the band following their 2002 breakup.

From 1989 to 2002, Love and guitarist Eric Erlandson were the core of Hole.  The rest of the band was a revolving door of bassists and drummers.  Most of the time, the rhythm section was all female.

Much of the interview was spent trying to convince the reader that Courtney Love isn't crazy.  Read it if you're interested.

A lot of the questions were about the reason most people know Courtney Love's name.  Kurt Cobain.

Love discusses the why her stake in Nirvana's publishing rights are important to her.  Courtney says:

“Somebody has to guard the gates of this thing.  Because you know what would happen? The second I sell [the rights], it becomes a jukebox musical, makes a billion dollars, and you’ve got jazz hands on Broadway. Or he’ll be in Gatorade commercials. I will never sell the f*cking stakes I have in it, because no one else will bother protecting him.”

Courtney Love sold 25 percent of her stake in Nirvana's publishing rights for $50 million in 2006.  She considered selling the rest of it in 2010.  Most of Nirvana's library is controlled by Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic.  They've made it pretty clear that they don't want to see Nirvana songs in commercials.
