Courtney Love Forgot How To Play The Guitar
The former Hole star admits she couldn't have played the instrument pal Linda Perry sent her as she underwent drug counselling last year even if she wanted to - because music was banned in the facility.
Love tells Billboard.com, "My hand-eye co-ordination was so bad, I didn't even know chords anymore. It was like my fingers were frozen. And I wasn't allowed to make noise, so I'd sit there and try to quietly write and struggle. I never thought I would work again. No one is ever going to talk to me. I'm never going to get a record deal. I'm never going to get on stage again. So, I just kept writing."
The results of her frantic rehab writing stint features on her new untitled album, which is produced by former 4 Non Blondes star Perry, who co-wrote a handful of the tunes.
Perry insists she was blown away by her pal's recovery and songwriting skills: "Courtney Love's name should be right next to Bob Dylan when they say best lyricist of all time."
