Now for the good news: even Rossi herself suspects that Love didn't write the music for Live Through This (Kurt did). Queen of Noise also confirms with many anecdotes that Courtney is indeed a monster. But deep down she is an extremely vulnerable and fragile person, especially when it concerns Kurt's death. The following occurred at the last show of Hole's '95 Lollapalooza tour:
"The sweetness soured minutes later, however, when the set ended. According to accounts from those close up at the show, the trouble started with two young men in the front row who were obviously not Hole fans. They had glared during the show, and refused to clap at the show's end, standing crossed-armed, staring.
Courtney screamed at them, "Louder!"
One of them hissed, "You killed Kurt!"
She stepped into the audience and started pounding them.
Courtney was carried off from her last Lollapalooza show, crying."
And another time:
"When Hole played Portland, Courtney walked onstage before a screaming full-house chanting her name as though she were the second coming. By the third song, she'd stomped off. The reason was painfully obvious: someone had yelled out, 'You killed Kurt!'"
At the only Hole show I've attended, the one described above, Courtney stopped at one point, mid-song, because of a girl up front wearing a black NIN t-shirt and looking very dour and unimpressed. Courtney flat-out asked the girl why didn't she like her and to come up onstage. Love awkwardly showed her how to play a couple of chords on her guitar. The girl played along, but soon returned to her seat with an expression that said, "What a fucking pathetic loser" - no more won over than the guys at Lollapalooza. Courtney Love can't deal with people she can't control, and when she's confronted with them, she's at her weakest. The next time Hole tours, be sure to get a good seat up front.
