She only got one response...
Courtney Love's internet ad for a new bassist didn't turn out quite how she wanted. The notorious former Hole frontwoman told Bust Magazine that she placed an ad on Cragislist of all places and it only got a single response.
Love elaborated, saying, "I put an ad on Craigslist that said, 'Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur.' I got exactly one response. There's just not a lot of chick bass players."
Love is releasing her new album under her own name as opposed to Hole, explaining that, "My name symbolizes a lot of things, and I have to sit in these rooms with lawyers and be called a 'brand' often, so I was just like, 'Fucking name it after me!' I don't care."
She added, "I'm thinking of maybe naming my fucking album 'Died Blonde', because I'm in such a morbid space... It's not that I'm unhappy. And it's certainly not that I'm crazy. It's just that I know all this shit, and I don't know what to do with it."
