During the Nirvana and Cobain meteoric rise and then sudden death, I never liked Courtney Love. I kinda thought she was probably a musical hanger-on dragging down Cobain.
I don’t know the facts about their relationship, but Love and her band Hole were no musical hanger-ons. They had some great songs. My favorite of theirs is one of their most popular songs, Doll Parts. Love sings so plaintively during parts of it, and then with so much conviction and intent in other parts, it’s a pretty impressive emotional range of vocals.
