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.

  1. I don’t know about ‘easy on the eyes’, but I did laugh at Courtney Love defending Linda Perry’s “indie”-ness. Love hasn’t been an authority for the last two decades. Wasn’t her last indie release back in 1993 or so?

    just when i think, wow she looks pretty cleaned up…maybe she got her act together. then i see the pics, fag in hand, and i read the gibberish of a message that she…uh, ‘typed?’ the ho is a loser. always has been and always will be. she may ‘clean up’ well at times, but you can’t take the garbage out of the can.

    I don’t get it, the withering on stage when she’s supposed to be “sober”. She may see it as her putting on her “rock queen attitude” but it looks like she’s parodying herself. In fact just seeing her on stage…it looks like an imposter is doing it. Also, the vocals…drink some more tea Court.

    Courtney Love is a waste of space.

    Why can’t all these 90s alternative-rockers stay irrelevant like they’re supposed to? They got me through middle school but I’m happy to know that bigger and better things came along.

    Btw
    In case anyone was wondering, I found her cover of Rhiannon on Youtube.

    Weird, how she makes Rhiannon sound like a campfire sing along.

    jordan, a decade, usually, means a period of ten years. now take this bit of information and do the math.

    I’ll be damned if I click on that link. It surely lead only lead to deep disgust.

  12. Courtney, I think your plastic surgeon missed your lips with the collagen needle and hit your throat instead. You should have that looked at.
