Courtney Love revealed that she has hired several musicians for her forthcoming tour, one of whom strongly resembles her late husband, Kurt Cobain.

She also said that she is bringing on board the guitarist from Larrakin Love, which recently split up.

Posting on her blog, Love wrote: "Another (guy) I found out later models on the side…but I'll admit it, I really hired him 'cos he looks so much like Kurt. It's weird, and he can play really well. He didn't kill me but he swore if I gave him a week he'd learn everything. He's blonde and soooooooo beautiful and his guitar playing is great."

She continued: "The other is a guy from band called Larrakin Love. His guitar playing blew me away because it's just so fucking MODERN. Its' Jonny Greenwood and Jack White and now and he's not stuck in any nineties rut."

Love also hinted that she plans to play a secret London show on her birthday, July 9. She wrote: "So London is on my bday, BUT I CAN'T SAY WHERE, and NY is on the 12th or 13th and the Roxy (in Los Angeles) is a few days after that."

Love concluded by saying that she's recording a new song, tentatively titled 'Crashing Down', which "rocks really hard".
