Early Life

Singer, songwriter, actress. Born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964, in San Francisco, California. Outspoken, brash, and sometimes out of control, Courtney Love has become one of alternative rock's most fascinating figures. She is the widow of legendary Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain as well as an accomplished solo artist in her own right. Love, however, has made more headlines for her outrageous exploits than her talent.

Her parents—Hank Harrison, an associate of the Grateful Dead and Linda Carroll, a therapist—divorced when she was only five years old. Raised by her mother, Love lived in a commune for several years. She then spent time in a reform school in her early teens for shoplifting and became a stripper at the age of 16, according to an article in Stella magazine. While living in Oregon, she befriended Kat Bjelland.

Signing and ACting

After a few attempts at college, Love spent a lot of time traveling the world, visiting places such as Japan, Ireland, and even Liverpool where she met a musician named Julian Cope and moved in with him, becoming a regular face at his gigs. She funded her travels with money she received from her grandmother and from working as a stripper.

The relationship didn't last and Love eventually returned to America. Love joined up with old friend Bjelland, forming the all-female punk trio Sugar Baby Doll with Jennifer Finch. Love and Bjelland developed their trademark fashion style around this time, appearing on stage in babydoll dresses, heavy make-up, and with messy hair. The band split up after Bjelland kicked Love out of the group. Finch went on to become the bassist in L7, another female-driven alternative rock group. Later Love and Bjelland reunited to create Babes in Toyland in 1987 with Lori Barbero on drums. But soon Love was pushed out by Bjelland.

In addition to music, Love tried acting. She caught the attention of film director Alex Cox in 1986 who decided to cast her in a small role in Sid and Nancy. The film told the story of punk music's most famous star-crossed lovers, Sex Pistols bassist Sid Vicious and his lover Nancy Spungen, which starred Gary Oldman and Chloe Webb. Sid and Nancy wasn't a success but Love persisted with her acting career with another of Cox's ventures, Straight To Hell, the following year, but this was even more of a flop, going straight to DVD.

Forming Hole

Living in Los Angeles, Love started to take music more seriously, learning to become a better guitar player. She founded her own band Hole in 1989 with Eric Erlandson after he replied to an ad she placed for musicians. They then brought in Jill Emery on bass and Caroline Rue on drums. Soon the group was making waves in the underground music scene with such singles as "Dicknail" and "Retard Girl." Produced by Don Fleming of Gumball and Kim Gordon of Sonic Youth, Hole's debut album, Pretty on the Inside (1991), attracted some critical attention in England. Love soon began to meet and befriend more influential musicians such as Michael Stipe of REM and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins.

Tumultuous Marriage to Kurt Cobain

The year before Hole's album release, Love met Kurt Cobain from the band Nirvana at the Satyricon club in Portland. They later ran into each other at another show in 1991. Two months after the release of Nirvana's huge hit album, Nevermind, the couple started up a whirlwind romance. They were married on a Hawaii beach in February 1992. This was her second marriage, having been wed very briefly to James Moreland in 1989. In August 1992, the couple welcomed their first and only child, daughter Frances Bean. As the wife of an alternative rock icon, Love received a boost to her own music career, with major record labels suddenly began to take more serious notice of Love's work.

The couple soon found themselves in legal hot water. Love told Vanity Fair that she used heroin while unknowingly pregnant with Frances. The story touched off an official investigation by social services. But in the end, Love and Cobain retained custody of their daughter.

Love's joint drug abuse with her husband began to accelerate at a rapid pace, culminating in the tragic events of April 5, 1994. Cobain, deeply depressed, committed suicide using a shotgun to his head. His death was thought to be a suicide, and Love made the brave and public step of reading out the note he left behind to hoards of distressed fans at his memorial service a few days later.

Cobain's suicide came just before Hole's first huge commercial album release Live Through This (1994). And while still grieving for her husband, Love was then forced to endure more emotional torment when Hole's bassist Kristen Pfaff overdosed on heroin and died just two months later.

Film Roles

Rumors circulated that Cobain had co-written a large part of Hole's second album but Love vehemently denied this. To protect the band and Cobain's name, Love maintained a fairly professional relationship with the remaining Nirvana band mates and formed a partnership with them in 1997 called Nirvana LLC which would control all Nirvana related releases and try and protect the interests of all parties. However, the relations between Love and the group eventually became strained and by 2001, Love sought to terminate the company.

Not one to sit back and crumble, Love picked herself up and recruited a new replacement for Pfaff before touring with Hole internationally in 1995, appearing at worldwide festivals including Reading. Live Through This had become a critical success and the song "Doll Parts" did well on the pop and modern rock charts.

Still interested in acting, Love took on the role of Althea Flynt, the wife of Hustler publisher Larry Flynt in The People Vs. Larry Flynt (1996). Woody Harrelson portrayed her on-screen husband in the film, which was directed by Milos Forman. Love's performance won great acclaim and earned her a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress. She became romantically linked to Edward Norton who

Wallpaper love heart biography.

1. Manchester, UK electro-pop duo Theo Hutchcraft and Adam Anderson. Formed in 2009, elegant and enigmatic HURTS have their sharp suits, slick hair and stark visuals. Theo and Adam present a striking contrast to the glow-in-the-dark pop stars who have run amok across the charts of late. Looking like they would rather be on the cover of Vogue Hommes than NME or Smash Hits, the pair resemble Tears for Fears as shot by Anton Corbijn. Hurts have recently released their first single “Better Than Love” and toured the UK and Europe during the summer of 2010.

Before HURTS, singer Theo and synthesiser Adam were in bands Bureau and Daggers, the latter of which supported Gary Numan. However, on a trip to Italy, they discovered “disco-lento” (slow disco) and became fixed on a more austere, and stylish, European aesthetic and Hurts was born.

Musically, they construct melancholic 1980s-inspired electro-pop with songs that they say are inspired by the British mentality of being “not too bad”.

“How are you doing? Not too bad. For a while you think that’s not very interesting,” Theo once said. “But it can be very interesting because it’s on a knife-edge of hope and despair.”

Read a BBC Review of HURTS

2. Hurts (?????)started out in 2006 as a session Japanese band limited to playing small lives in Nagoya. On 8/18 at the Wakayama UNDER CODE Special Event, KISAKI announced that he had added hurts to the lineup of Under Code Production. hurts disbanded in March 2008 .

What is Young Love? Just peek at the New York band's myspace page. You'll find this brief but amusing overview:

"Los angeles good times tequila rock bands austin day cruiser van smoke machines tour trafalgar hollywood oakwoods why are dudes wearing makeup everyone knows everyone brooklyn night clubs whiskey white suits bright lights miami island cutting rugs london finishing the record"

"That's the last two or three years of my life, with a bit of childhood thrown in," says Dan Keyes, frontman and musical tour de force behind Young Love. Not only does that word collage work as a history of the group, but it also serves as a good primer on the band's sound, which can only be described as "now, but different."

Strange but true: You may have heard these songs before. A couple of the tracks, only available on the Internet, have filtered out into NYC's clubs over the past few months. Stranger: if you really know Keyes, you may be surprised it's him behind these songs.

It was only two years ago when the multi-talented musician was a member of Recover, a buzzworthy young band from Austin, Texas. Their melodic post-punk sound landed the group a major label deal, a dedicated nationwide fan base and much critical acclaim. But Keyes had other things (or, actually, other songs) on his mind.

"I love those guys, and I'm still close with them, but I was at a creative crossroads," remembers Keyes. "I knew I had to change something about my life."

Fate intervened. During a birthday party, a New York friend of Keyes made the musician an offer he couldn't refuse. "He said, 'I have a room free up here. Be here in a week and a half.' And I had always wanted to move to New York, even as a kid."

So Keyes left a town full of great musicians and good friends to move to a strange and wonderful new place … to bus tables. "I moved up here with one bag and my guitar," he says. "And I mean that literally." Fortunately, his bag contained a few demos and rough sketches for songs, which would eventually serve him well.

While doing time at a high-end midtown restaurant ("Catering to rich white people that spoke to me like I didn't know English"), Keyes started thinking more about those unfinished songs. They were good songs, but they hadn't fit in with any of his previous bands. They were danceable, unpredictable, catchy and even thematic. They were, in essence, the origins of what would become Young Love.

"That band name actually hit me years ago," he says. "I knew if I had another band, it would be called Young Love. It's not two words just randomly thrown together. The name is an idea, and all of my songs reflect that."

Guitars, while present on Young Love's debut, are merely a side note in the band's sound. "And that's the funny thing," says Keyes. "I wrote these all on an acoustic guitar; some of them even sound like country.

But once Keyes hit the studio, things changed as he and his bandmates started tinkering with the songs. "Discotech", the infectious first single that's already requested in NYC night clubs, is now sonically more in tune with its name, featuring a dance beat - squealing guitar combo that fits comfortably into the New York underground … while never emulating it. And the propulsive "Find a New Way" is Keyes, as he puts it, "trippin' out on a Microkorg keyboard."

"That was written a couple of years ago," admits Keyes. "I had just turned 21, and I was going out to bars and clubs, and realizing how much fun it is. Actually, a lot of these songs are just about nightlife, and the other half are about love. It all sounds really positive, even if you really listen to the lyrics and see that it's not always the case."

Meanwhile, "Tragedy" shows off a darker side, with the guitars a little noisier and the mood stark. "That song is too crazy to even describe," says Keyes

Keyes, who is currently assembling a band to tour with this summer, ultimately sees Young Love as a culmination of hard work, taking chances and allowing himself the chance to write the music that's been knocking around his head for years.

"This record has been a long time coming," says Keyes, "These songs have existed with me for so long. I'm excited to get them out there. And I hope people get excited by them: I feel like I'm just the instrument to give the songs to everyone."

Love background wallpaper biography.

Courtney Michelle Love (born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964) is an American rock musician and actress. Love is known as lead singer and lyricist for the alternative rock band Hole and for her marriage to the late Nirvana singer/guitarist Kurt Cobain. Rolling Stone called Love ?the most controversial woman in the history of rock?.

Life and career

Family background
Love?s mother Linda Carroll was adopted by an Italian-American couple at birth, retaining no contact with her birth father or her birth mother, who she discovered was the children?s writer Paula Fox. Carroll's autobiography Her Mother?s Daughter, in 2006, told of her relationship with both adoptive mother and elder daughter.

Conflicting news began to appear in August 2003 regarding Love?s family tree, some remarking that Love?s mother had taken DNA tests that proved that Carroll?s father was Marlon Brando. The reports implied this disclosure would appear in Carroll?s memoir. Later that month, Carroll?s publisher, Doubleday, told the New York Daily News, ?There was nothing in Linda Carroll?s book proposal about Marlon Brando, nor will there be anything in the book about him. I?ve spoken to her and she has told me that there is no truth to the suggestion that she is related to Marlon Brando.?

Early life
Courtney Michelle Harrison was born in San Francisco, California, the daughter of Linda Carroll, a therapist, and Hank Harrison, a publisher. She has described herself as being of Irish and Jewish ancestry. Love?s family broke up soon after her birth. During a child custody case following her parents? divorce, her mother and one of her friends presented letters implying her father had given the child, then three years old, LSD. Harrison denies this allegation and has passed polygraph tests; however, these allegations led to full custody being awarded to Love?s mother.

Love spent a troubled childhood with her mother, who married and divorced three times, and settled in hippie communes in Oregon. Before arriving in New Zealand, Love had been left in the United States with Shirley, a friend of her mother's, a therapist, while her mother, the new husband and her half-sisters settled in New Zealand without her. Shortly after reuniting with her family in New Zealand, Love was sent to the boarding school in Nelson.

While in boarding school, Love wrote poetry, joined a Bay City Rollers fan club, and, at 12, applied to join the Mickey Mouse Club; she was rejected after reading a poem by Sylvia Plath at the audition.

At 16, Love traveled around the U.S., England and the Republic of Ireland, living on a trust fund established for her by her mother?s adoptive parents. In England, she moved into the Toxteth, Liverpool, home of musician Julian Cope, of The Teardrop Explodes, and became a regular at rock shows. In his autobiography Head-On, Cope refers to her as "the adolescent" in place of using her name.

Eventually, she went to Portland, Oregon, still pursuing music. She worked as an erotic dancer, choosing the stage surname Love as a tribute to the motto peace and love.

Early musical career
Love began her music career with a brief stint as lead singer of Faith No More. Keyboardist Roddy Bottum described the band as ?democratic?, saying that Love?s dominating personality did not fit in. The two have remained friends, working together in 2005 on a track for the film Adam & Steve.

At 22, Love moved to Portland, then to Los Angeles in 1987 with musician Kat Bjelland, beginning a period in which she formed bands with Bjelland only to be ousted from each. The pair first formed a band in Los Angeles, with Jennifer Finch, called Sugar Baby Doll (alternately Sugar Babylon). Love and Bjelland began to dress alike, wearing dirty Babydoll dresses, plastic hair clips, ripped stockings and overdone, smeared makeup. An argument between the two raged over who had come up with their style, later dubbed Kinderwhore. Love claimed she took the style from Christina Amphlett of 1980s Australian rock group, Divinyls

Love and Bjelland formed a band called The Pagan Babies in San Francisco, with Deidre Schletter on drums and Janis Tanaka on bass. The band recorded a demo of four tracks, then ejected Love and renamed themselves Italian Whorenuns. Lastly, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, Bjelland started her longest-running band, Babes in Toyland. Love played bass but was kicked out of this group as well. Love had more success as an actress, appearing as Gretchen, a friend of Nancy Spungen in Alex Cox?s Sid Vicious biopic Sid and Nancy in 1986, and in Cox?s spaghetti-western, Straight to Hell in 1987.

In 1989, Love taught herself to play guitar and set out to form her own band. She placed an ad in Flipside, to which Eric Erlandson replied. Love and Erlandson founded Hole and are the only two constant members through the band?s history. The group made their first gig in November 1989, after three months of rehearsal, and made singles on the Long Beach, California, independent label Sympathy for the Record Industry. The debut album Pretty on the Inside was released in early 1991 on Caroline Records, produced by Sonic Youth?s Kim Gordon and Don Fleming of the band Gumball. It sold well for an independent release and received favorable reviews in the British alternative music press. During this period, she befriended many figures in the alternative rock scene, including Michael Stipe of R.E.M. and Billy Corgan of The Smashing Pumpkins (whom she briefly dated).

Marriage
Love met Kurt Cobain on January 12, 1990, in Portland's Satyricon nightclub before fame hit, when the two led underground rock bands. Love made advances but Cobain was evasive. Early in their courtship Cobain broke off dates and ignored Love?s advances because he wasn?t sure he wanted a relationship. Cobain noted, "I was determined to be a bachelor for a few months But I knew that I liked Courtney so much right away that it was a really hard struggle to stay away from her for so many months."

Love lived a block from the Los Angeles apartment the band used while recording their second album, Nevermind. Love stopped by often, saying, "We bonded over pharmaceuticals." They met again in May 1991, after Cobain's band had signed a major-label contract, at a Butthole Surfers concert. In November 1991, touring Europe at the same time, they conceived a child together.

Love and Cobain married on Waikiki Beach in Honolulu, Hawaii, on February 24, 1992. Love wore a satin and lace dress once owned by the actress Frances Farmer, and Cobain wore green pajamas, because he?d been "too lazy to put on a tux". Six months later, on August 18, the couple?s daughter, Frances Bean Cobain, was born.

On April 8, 1994, four days before the release of Hole?s first major-label album, Live Through This, Cobain was found in his Seattle, Washington home, killed by an apparently self-inflicted shotgun wound to his head. Two days later, fans assembled at a memorial service in Seattle. During the memorial, a recording was played of Love reading his suicide note, as she felt portions were addressed to his fans. Love interrupted the note frequently to express anger and sorrow, telling Cobain that if he hated it so much, he should just ?quit being a rock star?. Love asked everyone to call Cobain an ?asshole?; on the recording, the crowd obeys. Finally, Love implored fans not to listen to Cobain?s final words, ?it?s better to burn out than fade away,? from Neil Young?s ?My My, Hey Hey (Out of the Blue)?.

Live Through This tour (1994)
Hole was struck by tragedy again when bassist Kristen Pfaff died of an apparent heroin overdose on June 16, 1994, two months after Cobain's death and the new album. A few months later, Love told MTV?s Kurt Loder, "You know ... people go back to work. This is what I do. I gotta make a living." Love recruited 22-year-old bassist Melissa Auf der Maur on Corgan?s recommendation to fill in for Pfaff, and took Hole on the road, appearing at the Reading Festival in England. The band?s performance was written up by broadcaster John Peel in The Guardian:

Courtney?s first appearance backstage certainly caught the attention. Swaying wildly and with lipstick smeared on her face, hands and, I think, her back, as well as on the collar of her dress, the singer would have drawn whistles of astonishment in Bedlam. After a brief word with supporters at the foot of the stage, she reeled away, knocking over a wastebin, and disappeared. Minutes later she was onstage giving a performance which verged on the heroic... Love steered her band through a set which dared you to pity either her recent history or that of the band...the band teetered on the edge of chaos, generating a tension which I cannot remember having felt before from any stage.
Meanwhile, Live Through This was a commercial and critical success. Rolling Stone, Spin and the Village Voice declared it ?Album of the Year?, and by November the record was certified gold. By April 1995, it went platinum. Hole embarked on a tour opening for Nine Inch Nails.

Celebrity Skin era (1998?2000)
Love received acclaim as Larry Flynt?s wife, Althea, in Milo? Forman?s 1996 film The People vs. Larry Flynt, opposite Woody Harrelson as Flynt. She received a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress in a Drama and a New York Film Critics Circle Award for best supporting actress. During this time she began dating Edward Norton, a relationship which after four years would become her longest. The two were engaged but broke up.

In 1998, Hole released Celebrity Skin. Rolling Stone gave the album four out of five stars, saying ?the album teems with sonic knockouts that make you see all sorts of stars. It?s accessible, fiery and intimate?often at the same time. Here is a basic guitar record that?s anything but basic.? Celebrity Skin went on to go multi-platinum, and topped ?Best of Year? lists at Spin, the Village Voice, and other periodicals. Erlandson was still the lead guitarist, and now there were Melissa Auf der Maur?s backup vocals and bass, but drummer Patty Schemel was replaced by a session drummer during the recording.

Love and Fender?s low-price Squier brand created her line of guitars, Vista Venus (as Cobain did in 1994, doing the design of his Fender Jag-Stang). The instrument featured a shape inspired by Mercury, Stratocaster and Rickenbacker?s solidbodies and had a single-coil and a humbucker pickup. In an early 1999 interview, Love said about the Venus: ?I wanted a guitar that sounded really warm and pop, but which required just one box to go dirty (...) And something that could also be your first band guitar. I didn?t want it all teched out. I wanted it real simple, with just one pickup switch. Because I think that cultural revolutions are in the hands of guitar players?. She also declared, ?my Venus is better than the Jag-Stang?. The Squier Vista Venus model is currently discontinued, as is the Jag-Stang as of 2006.

Hole toured Australia in 1999 to support the album, then the U.S. on a tour with Marilyn Manson. The two bands mocked each other on stage. Hole dropped off the tour, citing the obligation to pay 50% of Manson?s staging costs as a reason. The singers of both bands told MTV there was no animosity and they were happy to end the tour. Hole finished the year?s dates with Imperial Teen opening.

In May 2000, Love spoke in New York at the Digital Hollywood online entertainment conference, criticizing the major American record labels. The speech was reproduced on the news site Salon.com. Love accused the labels of a corrupt system of recording contracts to make the labels millions, while the band ?may as well be working at a 7-Eleven.?

With Hole in disarray, Love began a ?punk rock femme supergroup? called Bastard during autumn 2001, enlisting Schemel, Veruca Salt frontwoman Louise Post, and bassist Gina Crosley, whom Post recommended. Though a demo was completed, the project never reached fruition: conflicts between Love and Crosley, then between Love and replacement bassist Corey Parks from Nashville Pussy, led to the group?s demise. On May 24, 2002, Hole announced their breakup amid continuing litigation with Universal Music Group. However, on June 17, 2009, Love announced through an NME blog, that Hole would be reforming, with her guitarist, Micko Larkin replacing Eric Erlandson. Melissa Auf der Maur is re-joining, also, however no drummer has been announced as of yet.

Health, drug abuse and legal issues
On October 2, 2003, Love was arrested in Los Angeles while breaking windows to enter the home of her boyfriend, manager and producer Jim Barber. Barber did not press charges (Love says she had paid for the home), but the police charged her with being under the influence of a controlled substance. Released on bail, four hours later Love was treated for an accidental overdose of OxyContin. Eight days later, on October 10, Frances Bean was taken by the L. A. County Department of Children and Family Services and placed with Cobain?s mother, Wendy O?Connor. Authorities ordered a 72-hour hospital evaluation of Love?s health, but she walked from the facility, claiming she was ready to head to rehab. When Love didn?t attend, her lawyer said he may move to have the police department?s toxicology reports re-examined. In public appearances, Love protested her arrest, denying charges and describing the drugs found on her as ?one expired Percocet and one Ambien?. The police, however, alleged possession of oxycodone and hydrocodone without prescription. She released her first solo album, America's Sweetheart, eight days earlier. The album was a commercial flop. Spin called it a ?jawdropping act of artistic will?, Rolling Stone that, ?for people who enjoy watching celebrities fall apart, America?s Sweetheart should be more fun than an Osbournes marathon.? The record was re-recorded and finished while Love was either fresh from or still undergoing drug rehab, and in its first three months sold about 86,000 according to Nielsen Soundscan. During this period, an estimated $20 million belonging to Love and her daughter was apparently siphoned off in a case still being investigated by the FBI. ?It was my hell time. I was doing cocaine and had incredible financial trouble. $20 million was stolen from us and at the time I couldn?t do the math very well. So I took this drug to help me. It turned out the crazy math was real. The FBI looked at the paperwork and saw $1.2 million to the UK, $180,000 to Nice. It was the former boyfriend and the two assistants. They had power of attorney and they purchased property. They started in about 2000 without me knowing and I got more out of it. I think they thought she will die. In fact I should not be alive after what I went through in the Letterman period.?

British artist Stella Vine has frequently painted Courtney Love in works such as Courtney black cab (2004). Vine publicly defended Love and has said that her paintings depicting Love such as Courtney guilty were made during Love's trial when Vine felt Love was under attack by the media. Identifying with Love's life story, Vine said: "She's one of those people who are prepared to put the truth out, warts and all, even though you will be attacked for it.

After a state-enforced rehabilitation program and probation, Love regained custody of her daughter in January 2005. Child welfare authorities alluded to drug addiction when responding to the press, although they didn?t comment directly.

On August 19, 2005, Love admitted using drugs in violation of her probation. She was ordered into a 28-day treatment program by a judge who said ?my belief was that you need to go to the county jail.? This program was also violated, and on September 21 she was sentenced to six months in lock down rehab.

Love was released from house arrest on February 3, 2006, and said: ?I would just like to thank the court for allowing me these 90 days... helped me deal with a very gnarly drug problem, which is behind me... I?ve just been playing guitar and taking care of my daughter. I want to to let the community know I?m doing great... I?ve been really inspired and have remained inspired.? On July 2, 2007 she traveled to Europe with her band.

Pictures of an emaciated Love raised concern for her health in August 2007. Love claimed she "had to take care of my eating disorder." When more photos of Love appearing to be in ill health emerged in June 2008, a U.S. website wrote an "Open Letter to Courtney Love," pleading with the mother of Frances Bean to "wake up." Love admitted being suicidal following the theft of Cobain's ashes in her possession. On October 2, 2008, Love's publicist told Gigwise.com that Cobain's ashes ?were never taken? and that the story had been ?erroneously reported ?.

America?s Sweetheart (2004)
In early 2004, as she had completed her first batch of songs, Love asked ex-Hole drummer Samantha Maloney to fly to France (after drummer Patty Schemel departed for the second time) and add drums to Love?s solo debut, America?s Sweetheart. Returning to the States, Maloney was put in charge of assembling Love?s live band. After auditions, Maloney reconnected with guitarist Radio Sloan, found guitarist Lisa Leveridge, bassist Dvin Kirakosian, and the four women formed the core of Love?s backing band. Violinist Emilie Autumn later joined the band.

Love at a book signing November, 2006
In June 2005, three months after her release from drug rehabilitation, Love started recording her second solo LP, Nobody's Daughter. An anti-cocaine song entitled ?Loser Dust?, as well as other new songs (?My Bedroom Walls?, ?Pacific Coast Highway?, ?Sunset Marquis?), were written during her time in rehab. Former 4 Non Blondes singer Linda Perry is producing the record, which features the writing and recording collaboration of Billy Corgan.

Some of this album (initially planned for release in 2008) was on the Internet in 2006. The Return of Courtney Love, a documentary about the making of Nobody's Daughter, was filmed, written and produced by Will Yapp and aired on the British television network More4 on September 27, resulted in distribution of clips of some of its songs. The first entire song available for downloading was a rough acoustic version of ?Never Go Hungry Again?, recorded during an interview for The Times in November. Incomplete audio clips of the song ?Samantha?, originating from an interview with NPR.org, were also distributed on the Internet in May 2007.

In October 2006 Love published a memoir, Dirty Blonde. Also in 2006, she reportedly sold 25% of Nirvana?s catalog for $50 million. Love claims $20 million was embezzled from her by members of her entourage, leaving her "on the verge of applying for food stamps."

Love?s new band consists of Patricia ?Pato? Vidal (bass), Schoo Fisher (drums, formerly of Ozric Tentacles), (Also identified as "Stu" in a video interview on MySpace) Micko Larkin (guitar, formerly of Larrikin Love), Bethia Beadman (keyboards and background vocals), and Liam Wade (guitar).

She also collaborated with DJ Milky and Ai Yazawa to make the manga Princess Ai.

On June 1, 2007, Love made her stage comeback in a Linda Perry show at House of Blues in Los Angeles. With Perry and the producer?s backup band, she performed ?Nobody?s Daughter?, ?Sunset Marquis?, ?Pacific Coast Highway? and ?Letter to God?. On July 23, 2007, Love added the first song, "Dirty Girls", to her MySpace page, followed by a piano-and-vocal demo of ?Sunset Marquis?, and in July 2008 with "Letter to God".

Love said in April 2007 that ?I?m going to have a Christie?s auction,? to hock the bulk of Cobain?s belongings with a portion going to charity.

She has worked with photographer David LaChapelle, appearing on the cover of his book 'Heaven to Hell' depicting the pieta.

London & Co. filed a lawsuit against Love on July 22, 2008, claiming she sold Nirvana's publishing catalog without paying a share of the profits. The catalog was sold for $19.5 million and, according to an oral contract with Love, she had to share the 5% of her company The End of Music's earnings. London & Co. is seeking $975,000, which would have been its share of the sale.

Wallpaper love you

Wallpaper love you biography.

Consider two mid-'60s groups. Each is from Los Angeles, each is signed to Elektra Records, and each releases a series of albums that stand as some of the finest rock 'n' roll of the era. But in the early '70s, one of the groups' lead singers dies--and the then-defunct band's popularity grows to unbelievably massive proportions. By the early '90s, the group is immortalized when a prestigious film director devotes an entire movie to them.

Now consider that the two groups' names are Doors and Love--and in 1993, while the legend of late Doors vocalist Jim Morrison continued to grow two decades after his death, Love's singer Arthur Lee--in his 19th year without a major American record deal--was actually opening for a Doors cover band at a small Los Angeles club. One suspects he would have rather been hit by a bus.

Just one in a series of major ironies for Arthur Lee (b. 1944, Memphis, Tennessee) is the fact that his pioneering work with Love is now as revered internationally--at least on some critical levels--as the music of Jim Morrison's Doors. The first rock group to be signed by Elektra, Love was an unusual group by many standards--not least because both Lee, the band's lead singer and main songwriter, and John Echols, the band's guitarist, were black men who played rock 'n' roll. Very much an underground group (they rarely performed outside Los Angeles), Love first made their name on the basis of two superb 1966 singles: a remake of Manfred Mann's "My Little Red Book" (penned by Burt Bacharach & Hal David) from What's New Pussycat? and Lee's own "Seven And Seven Is," a top 40 hit. But much more influential were Love's albums, the first three of which displayed remarkable diversity and artistic growth.

The 1966 debut album Love was a much better than average collection of melodic, Byrds and Beatles-inspired pop, most of it written by Lee himself. By 1967's Da Capo, Love's original quintet had added two members, and the group's sound had grown much more sophisticated (including flute, saxophone and harpsichord)--as did Lee's compositions. Tracks like "Stephanie Knows Who" and "The Castle" were enormously inventive and dynamic, filled with complex chords and atmospheric shadings that sound contemporary even today. And the group had experimented even further by filling the second side of their LP with a 19-minute single track called "Revelation."

Still, all this served only as a prelude to 1967's Forever Changes, Love's all-time classic and an album many hold to be pop's finest. A mixture of hard rock and soft symphonic pop, it featured gorgeous string arrangements, trumpets, and pleasingly surreal lyrics by Lee. Released months after the so-called Summer Of Love, the album's back cover bore a picture of Lee holding a broken jug of obviously dead flowers; inside, Lee was singing lines like "They're locking him up today/ They're throwing away the key/ I wonder who it'll be tomorrow/ You or me?" A timeless album that is better heard than described, it will keep Arthur Lee's name in circulation well into the next century. "Those were my last words to the world," Lee recalled in 1981, "and I've been here ever since. Just like a guy saying good-bye, and you look out your front door and he's still there. I know I was real young, but I just thought that would be the year for me to exit."

Arthur Lee disbanded that version of Love and continued with several newer editions of the group, none ever as graceful or good as the first. 1969's hard-rocking Four Sail remains the last fully excellent album he was involved with; though nearly all of the Love albums to come between it and 1974's final Reel-to-Real boast many high points--including an appearance by Jimi Hendrix on 1970's False Start--Lee's seeming genius was slowly winding down. He recorded one respectable solo album in 1972's Vindicator (credited to Arthur Lee & Band-Aid), and one fairly shoddy one (including covers of the Bobbettes' 1957 hit "Mr. Lee" and Jimmy Cliff's "Many Rivers To Cross") released on the fledgling Rhino label in 1981, and hasn't released an American album since.

Though there have been several attempted Love reunions--including a 1978 concert issued by Rhino in 1982--it seems increasingly unlikely the group's magic could ever be duplicated again. Arthur Lee has continued to perform in the Los Angeles area through the '90s, and sometimes--not often, but sometimes--he still seems capable of making his audience believe it's 1967 all over again. Not that they want to; he just can't help it.
