Her personality flaws are numerous, and I don’t care. I love her. Hole is one of my favorite bands of all time. I enjoy everything they did, but I especially love the macabre fury of their first album. She is feral and terrifying on that record, the guitars sound like chainsaws for most of it, and the lyrics are haunting and utterly deranged. It’s a caustic, frightening, profoundly sad album. I think it’s possibly the most stripped-back view she’s given us into her psyche ever, which is saying something because she’s always pretty raw. I don’t know. I have just always sensed a profound pain in her that made sense to me despite the fact that I’m not a woman and can’t directly relate to a lot of the things she was talking about in her songs. Maybe that alone is a testament to the music.

She paid Alan Wrench and Il Duce 50,000 to kill Kurt before he cut her out of his estate and dumped her. Il Duce was shoved in front of a train as part of the cover up. Ask Fat Mike.

I will never understand how this obnoxious mental case has managed to stay more or less relevant for 30 years, when she has no talent whatsoever, is uglier than sin even after plastic surgery and is universally detested by almost everyone who's ever had the misfortune of dealing with her. It just goes to show how nastiness, shameless opportunism and the willingness to do anything and anyone to become famous, can take any sack of shit very far.

She is an intelligent, fascinating person. I don't know that I'd ever want to know her on a close and/or regular personal level (the chaos would be a lot to handle), but I respect her for the music she put forth in the pop culture canon. Even people who loathe her admit the music was good—their way out of giving her any due, though, is to simply say she didn't create any of it. I also appreciate her for owning her persona as an enfant terrible. We need those kind of people in the pop culture zeitgeist otherwise things get stagnant and too sanitized.

R33 Kurt maybe qualified as “Washington state hillbilly” to some, but Courtney is a cultured person who came from pretty well-to-do people (at least her mom) and, for a variety of reasons, veered into the gutter life. Her mother is a wealthy hippie therapist, and almost all of Courtney’s siblings got premium educations at elite schools. She is the black sheep of that family for certain, but she’s certainly not an uncultured hillbilly. She also isn’t from Washington.

She has talent but an outsized opinion of herself to go along with it. I’m sure she’s intelligent but she has always reminded me of someone who thinks she’s smarter than everyone around he because she’s read some Proust and a bit of philosophy.

As a vivid lyricist, Love was at least on-par with Cobain. Maybe Courtney was above-par...

Also, Love was a trained writer — attended Trinity — and comes from an established literary heritage (Paula Fox).

And she's Hollywood royalty: Courtney worked in the wardrobe department on Mommie Dearest.

Sometimes I wonder how things would have turned out if Kurt lived and she didn't. He would have had to raise their daughter all by himself. Would he have beaten his drug addiction? Would he have left Nirvana and went solo? Remarried? We will never know, but I guess everything happens for a reason. Apparently, Courtney and Francis Bean are on good terms these days. Their relationship has been up and down over the years.

R44, speaking as an addict myself, it’s highly unlikely he would’ve found sobriety because the drugs were very much part of his persona, ego, sexuality, psyche and reason for living. I’ve met plenty of “real deal” addicts like this that talk a good talk when they get sober, but are thinking about using the entire time. It colors their behavior in early sobriety and makes living almost insufferable, especially for family and friends around them.

The hardest things to accept in recovery are that you discover people don't like the sober version of you, and what kept you sober initially suddenly stops working the farther into sobriety you go. You don’t keep the same crowd of support you came in with either because so many of your “littermates” willrelapse.

You are not special because you get sober. This newfound shininess wears off and reveals the true person underneath, especially if you are not a nice person. Hard drugs taken over years or decades, notably heroin and meth permanently change and rearrange the neuron endings, pleasure center and reward system in your brain, making it almost impossible to find happiness.

I have met a LOT of unhappy old timer addicts and alcoholics the 14 years I’ve been sober.

Too bad none of that was passed down to Frances Bean. The girl is a moron. She allowed some ex to steal Kurt's one of a kind guitar and some other priceless heirlooms that the ex won't give back. She was blinded by the dick which was never her mother's problem. She also didn't inherit her mother's street smarts.

R39 No, he isn't. If he was SP wouldn't suck so much. He might be technically more skilled than Kurt but he doesn't have 1/10 of artistic talent Kurt had. Also, that third Holes album was very pop and Hollywood, so it makes sense that Billy helped making it. The second Hole album, that Kurt supposedly helped writing, is actually good.

Billy is a far better guitar player than Kurt ever was. I prefer Kurt/Nirvana as an artist, but there is no denying that Billy is talented.

I also prefer Hole to Nirvana. Courtney as a singer/songwriter and personality in general brings such an extreme dichotomy of masculine power and feminine rage that has always resonated with me as a gay man. She taps into both of energies and balances them beautifully in her songs. There is a rough edge to everything she does, but there is also a softness (and profound sadness) at the core if you pay close attention.

Kurt had several beautiful gifts, but he was also a person with incredibly thin skin and a nervous nellie beyond compare. Courtney was more of a survivor and probably was a bit the "top" in her relationship with Kurt.....all complicated by both of them being smacked out of their minds most of the time.

Nirvana was amazing and I liked Hole as well. Not everything is a fucking contest/comparison.
