Here’s Courtney Love performing “Celebrity Skin” in 2010 live at Don Hill’s in NYC and holy WOW WOW…. this is just truly awful. Love’s vocals aren’t the worst here, but that guitar! Was it not tuned properly before she played? Or does she just not even know how to make a bar chord?
According to YouTube uploader J.M. Ladd:
“I was hired through the venue to record this show (including many others throughout that week) and was then left standing with a hard drive and an invoice no one seemed to want.”
He then goes on to write:
“To address the most obvious, inevitable question that I will be asked… this is not fake. Whether you think she’s the worst or this just makes her all the more “punk rock” is for you to decide. I’m merely presenting the facts as they are. Make of them what you will.”
She’s no Linda McCartney that Courtney, eh?
