Photos: Courtney Love @ Fillmore

Prior to Saturday's Fillmore show, I photographed Courtney Love twice before. The first was SXSW 2010, where she announced her return with a roaring gusto, and then again a couple of months later at the now-infamous 9:30 Club show. I can report that Saturday was a repeat of SXSW 2010, and anyone who loves an [...]

Courtney Love: “I Wasn’t Allowed to Be Part of Grunge”

In the early 1990s, I bought Hole's record Pretty on the Inside because I thought the band, which formed in Los Angeles, was from Seattle. Twenty years later, I talked to Courtney Love, who is on tour and playing the Fillmore this Saturday, for 16 minutes and tried to type as fast as she spoke. [...]

Reviewed: The Muppets

The genius of the Muppets has always been the show’s ability to cut its gee-whizness with winking self-deprecation and a hint of cynicism. The somewhat insufferable Kermit the Frog has his rainbow-connectedness karate-chopped by an always-insufferable but realist Miss Piggy. Fozzie Bear and his terrible jokes are heckled by cranky balcony-dwellers Statler and Waldorf. And [...]

Arts Roundup: Johnny Iuzzini Edition

Morning all. Let's get to it, shall we?
Twitter sure does make for strange bedfellows, doesn't? Especially in the McCain family. First it was John McCain and Snooki sharing tweet love, and now it's Meghan McCain and Courtney Love. After Meghan tweeted about watching Love on VH1's "Behind the Music" and about listening to Hole as [...]

Good morning (or night), hungover Fat Tuesday-celebrating readers.
*The 30th annual Brit Awards aired last night, garnering awards for Oasis, Jay-Z, Robbie Williams, Florence and the Machine, and Lily Allen. The night's biggest winner was American favorite Lady Gaga who scooped up all three awards she was nominated for: Best International Newcomer, Best International Female, and [...]

Keith Richards Quits Alcohol; Which Other Stars Will Go Cold-Turkey?

Citing the increasing dissolution of bandmate Ronnie Wood, Keith Richards stole British tabby headlines yesterday by announcing he'd quit the juice. The guitarist and emblem of unapologetic living—who fell out of a palm tree during a boozy trip to Fiji in '06 and still battles rumors that he depends on Swiss blood transfusions to keep [...]

Ted Nugent is a Pussy: The CliffsNotes to Everybody Must Get Stoned

"Trying to show a link between rock stars and drugs is like trying to make a link between mouths and tooth decay," writes R.U. Sirius—the nom de fume of 10 Zen Monkeys' Ken Goffman. This is but one of the many mangy comparisons that frontload Everybody Must Get Stoned: Rock Stars on Drugs*, and when [...]

Courtney Love, Sponsored By Femine Hygiene Product?

Courtney Love should already be on The Surreal Life by now. That's the great tragedy. This is just farce: Apparently, Courtney Love's new album will be "sponsored" by a tequila company and a tampon maker. The Guardian UK writes:
When [the album] does finally land, the album, Nobody's Daughter, will be Courtney Love's first release since [...]
