Courtney Love on Bruce Springsteen: ‘Saxophones don’t belong in rock’n’roll’

"I don't think he sits around listening to Hole records," she says of The Boss

Courtney Love has given her verdict on Bruce Springsteen, saying that “saxophones don’t belong in rock’n’roll”.

The Hole frontwoman made the comments in a clip which you can watch above, which is part of her ongoing YouTube series Courtney Love On….

“I really like him,” she said of Springsteen. “He’s a nice guy. Cameron Crowe, an old, very dear friend of mine, took me to the Staples Center for a three-night gig, and I could only last an hour and a half in a three-and-a-half hour show with The Boss.”

“I don’t think he sits around listening to Hole records, do you?” she adds.

Last week (April 11), Love joined her late husband Kurt Cobain’s bandmates Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic to collect Nirvana’s induction into the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame, which was conducted by REM’s Michael Stipe.

Joan Jett, St Vincent, Lorde and Sonic Youth’s Kim Gordon all joined the surviving members of the band for a one-off performance of the band’s hits. Joan Jett sang ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’, Kim Gordon performed ‘Aneurysm’, St Vincent played ‘Lithium’ and Lorde sang ‘All Apologies’.

“I just wish Kurt could have been here,” Love said after the event. “Tonight he would have really appreciated it. I just want to give this to our daughter Frances Bean, who couldn’t be here because she was ill.”
