Courtney Love: ‘I love Florence And The Machine!’ – video

Returning legend bigs up Florence and her Hole guitarist Micko

Courtney Love has declared herself a huge fan of Florence And The Machine.

The Hole singer made the declaration in a video interview (watch it on the right) at the Shockwaves NME Awards on Wednesday (February 24). Hole performed two songs at the bash, while Love and Noel Fielding presented Kasabian with the Best Album Award.

“I love Florence and I love her manager [Mairead Nash],” she said. “Her manager found Micko [Larkin], Hole guitarist for me, so Godlike Genius is my guitar player Micko,” she said.

“I’ve had him since he was 18. He’s in that Kooks lot. He was in a band called Larrikin Love. Do you remember that? ‘Cause I don’t. He’s played with Slash, he’s played with The Edge, he’s a genius.”
