Courtney Love did a great interview with Woman’s Hour. Check it.

There’s a specific Irish interest too, as she talks about meeting Julian Cope in Dublin and getting into Trinity College. “You aren’t a rockstar until you start a hairstyle,” she says Cope told her. And Love is a rockstar through and through. As usual, her interview is laden with brilliant namedropping, breakneck speed and a generally rollicking and uncharacteristically lucid narrative.

Love is touring in May in the UK, and in the interview also hints at a Hole reunion tour for 2015.
