On June 3, 1995, Courtney Love played "Doll Parts" and "Softer, Softest" in what may be the only true solo performance of her career
"If I don't do this, who can?"
Courtney Love, a unionist? She may be the only one to put the Music Industry to task, and challenge practices that enslave struggling artists, turning shining stars into short-lived comets. That is, provided she doesn't just settle out of court. D'ya think she can do it? Or is this just more smoke & mirrors?
While I'm not a huge Hole fan, Courtney Love's letter to other recording artists
makes me look at her a bit differently. The letter is a pretty strong plea for them to organize a union representing their interests. With all of the press that has been genereated over the RIAA/Napster
battle, do you think the timing is right?
Garage Bands of the world, Unite! Move over Rick Trumka (link via SVN).
What do the "Gutsiest Broads" like Courtney Love and Hillary Clinton
have that the "Wimpiest Women" don't? By the way who is Darva Conger?
This is one of the more comprehensive and insightful takes on the RIAA vs. Napster vs. Record Companies that I've heard. It's long and rambling, but it makes a lot of sense to me.
