Courtney Love and Hole return to folm with London gig

You may stupidly still think that Courtney Love is off her head and drug ravaged. But you’d be wrong. I caught up with a clean and sober Courtney after she performed a blistering set at Shepherds Bush Empire with her reformed band Hole. On stage she was electric, captivating and her voice was back to it’s best. The singer told me she has a bright new future to look forward to with the band but admitted she didn’t understand what the hell she was doing at this week’s Brit Awards. “I remember being in rehab and seeing Gwen Stefani on the Brits so I was excited to go.” she told me. “But when you’re there it’s just pop music and not very me.”
Talking about Hole’s future she revealed: “We’ve been working hard on the new material – people are saying it’s the best we’ve ever done and a lot more radio friendly.” I couldn’t agree more – the band played a blinder and I loved every minute.
Courtney was immediately congratulated backstage by former lover Noel Fielding (who popped along with Pixie Geldof) and nearby songwriting legend Linda Perry hung with James Blunt – who arrived on his trusty scooter!
