do you like hole?

I do! I’ve always enjoyed Hole’s music dating back to 1989. The 2010 album even had a couple of alright tracks that I enjoyed. I don’t look at it as the same Hole. I look at it as a reversed Alice In Chains. Eric is a great lyricists. Courtney’s voice was perfect for the music they had written and created together.

I really miss and favorited Kristen the most. She was one of my favorite bassists from around that time period. I have always had a thing for female bassists. From Juliana Hatfield, Lori Black and Jennifer Finch to Kim Gordon, Kim Deal and especially DD Wretzky. Truly, a beautiful soul that was battling an addiction like many at the time. I mean, the headlines the next day after she was found read: "drugs has claimed another member of Seattle’s well-known Rock scene." Great era of music but we were sadly losing many of those that were making it great and doing nothing about it.

Kurt and Courtney’s nightstand in their Seattle home, 1993.

Kurt and Courtney collected many of these heart-shaped boxes. They would give them to one another as gifts, sometimes filled with hair and love notes or antique valentines.

How do you personally feel about the Kurt Cobain biopic? Do you think it will be any good?

I have no idea. I don’t know enough about it to say anything. The majority of people are either going to like it or hate it based upon Courtney herself rather than the actual film. It’s been in the works for a while though.

what ever happened to kurt's jaguar?

Last I heard Courtney Love owned it or gave it to Eric Erlandson. It can be seen in Hole’s “Doll Parts” music video. Fender took control of it a while back for the replicas they produced.

Anonymous inquired:

Hey! Did you see on the news about the musicvault uploading 13,000+ concerts to youtube.. is Nirvana going to have this too?

I did. I messaged them about it because the Wolfgang vaults supposedly has Nirvana related memorabilia, and I was seeing if they had a few Nirvana concerts. They replied and said there are no Nirvana concerts that will uploaded. So as far as MusicVault and Nirvana, it won’t be happening.

I sent Courtney and Krist a message, I’ve been trying to bring Nirvana’s concerts to Youtube for a while now. The fans want it, and it will be a great experience for everyone involved.


has Kurt Cobain/Nirvana ever been to Newport, Wales? There was a rumour that he proposed to Courtney in a famous local bar here (T.J's) Cheers mate!

December 10th, 1991 - Kurt Cobain traveled to TJ’s in the United Kingdom to meet with Courtney Love as her band Hole played that evening.

"We’d heard rumours that Mr. Cobain was lurking around on the periphery of the tour on his days off so it was nice to see him show up down at TJ’s." - Mike McKeegan of the band ‘Therapy?’

"Courtney Love had come in late and I’d taken her through, too late even to do a vocal check. Some time later this guy came shambling up and I challenged him because he went to walk straight in. I said ‘That’ll be £5, mate’ or whatever it was and he muttered something pretty unintelligible. He had hair all over the place and I was thinking he may be one of those occasional people we got who just wandered in off the street, coming in by mistake.

The second time I challenged him he brushed his hair off his face and said, ‘I’m with Courtney’ and of course then I recognized immediately who it was. What was nice was at the end of the night Kurt shook my hand and said, ‘Thanks man, you’ve got a nice venue here’.” - Simon Phillips [venue promoter].
