This is why you don’t burn your recording engineer.
After being hired to record a live Hole performance and getting stiffed for the bill, J. M. Ladd had nothing left but the recording. So what did he do with it?
He released this video of Courtney Love butchering Hole’s 1998 classic, “Celebrity Skin.”
Why is she still allowed to touch a guitar? People are calling her on her singing, which to my ear, sounds fine. She’s a rock singer. It’s not supposed to sound beautiful. And she’s basically in key. Most of the time. Ok, some of the time. But that’s kind of the point.
Isolate any rock singer and I think you’ll be surprised at what you hear. Unless it’s Jack White, in which case you’ll only hear him bitching about how everyone else isn’t as good as he is.
