Clash Music: Ask Courtney Love…

We asked some other notable musicians, including Yoko Ono, Gallows and Biffy Clyro, to put their questions to Courtney Love, the current cover star of Clash Magazine.

Yoko Ono: “I recently did a two-hour BBC radio show where I mixed my own choice of music. One of the tracks I chose was one of my favourites: ‘Celebrity Skin’ by Hole. This is what I said about it: “It’s a brilliant, brilliant song by Courtney Love. The song represents all mothers of the world today: desperate, angry, totally sad, and also extremely intelligent. She’s an incredibly complex woman and she has incredible vulnerability as well.” so, my question is: ‘Hey Courtney, did I catch you right?’

Courtney Love: “That’s overwhelming. I’ve never had an encounter with Ms. Ono Lennon. I did write a song about her called ‘20 Years In The Dakota’. Yes, she’s right. I don’t know what to say. Wow. I can tell you this: I’d just had Frances and Kurt came into the hospital with a Yoko Ono boxset and I threw it at his head. I was so offended by it, because of what it meant. He thought that was cool, I did not at the time. He loved Yoko Ono and he loved her work. Then I got round to listening to it and I thought she was quite brilliant. Bizarre but brilliant. She sticks with her own thing. Why was I offended? Because she got so much shit – I wrote in the song: “You don’t fuck with the fabulous four, or you spend the rest of your life picking things up off the floor””.
