New Courtney Love Live Video – “Pacific Coast Highway”

By Stereogum / June 1, 2007 - 10:42 am

When C. Love had Linda Perry and Billy Corgan join her at a benefit show in LA last year to try out two new tunes (“Sunset Marquis” and “PCH”), we were surprised at how not shitty it all sounded. Even her cover of Mac staple “Rhiannon” hit it on the surgically enhanced nose. Those of you in LA already know that Linda Perry’s set at the House Of Blues tonight will feature lots of Love, so for those that can’t make it, here’s Linda and Love rehearsing “Pacific Coast Highway” for the benefit of some professional videographers in prep for the Blues. Digging the country-tinged Stevie Nicks bit, Courtney. Sucks the vid fades out at the hook, but you’ll get a feel for where she’s headed.

Take the jump for still shots from the session and Court’s thoughts on Corgan and Linda’s contributions to her new record.



Surprisingly easy on the eyes, right? Not this, though. Here’s how Courtney feels about Billy and Linda P{erry.
