Love Goes Public With Band Search
Never one to keep any aspect of her life out of the public eye, Courtney Love has placed full-page ads in New York's Village Voice and L.A.

Weekly in Los Angeles in an attempt to recruit new members for her live band. The ad says, "Women required for International Rock Revolution. Join Courtney Love's touring band and get famous, see the world."
"Must play bass or guitar (really play), and look like a Goddess," the ad continues. "We like Emily the Strange, Lolita Goth, Patty Schemel's drumming, Nuggets and 'Performance' the Movie. We love Flea but don't want you to play like him." Love stresses "NO BOYS" will be considered.
An address for audition tapes and a phone number are listed. Calling the number dumps callers to an answering machine message from the former Hole frontwoman that says, "Hey, leave us your info. You better be able to play," although at deadline, the mailbox was too full to allow any additional messages.
As previously reported, Love is at work on her solo debut, "America's Sweetheart," and is negotiating with a number of labels for its North American release. The artist is already signed to Poptones/Telstar in the U.K. A number of the new cuts were co-written with 4 Non Blondes' Linda Perry (Pink, Christina Aguilera).
Love will play the U.K.'s Reading and Leeds festivals in August, followed by additional European dates and a North American tour in the fall.
