Courtney Love @ Virgin Megastore 11/7
LAist gets invited to a lot of cool events. We say no to way too many. It's not that we say no, we just never end up where we probably should be.
When we were invited to the Courtney Love book signing at the Virgin on Sunset we were not only there, we were early, we had our batteries charged, we had extra batteries, we had voted, we were Ready.
And secretly we hoped Courtney would have a meltdown and trash the fucker.
Sadly Courtney was very well behaved, although tardy, but that only gave us more time to read through her diary, "Dirty Blonde" which includes photos of and by her famous husband, and photos of their daughter. It's actually a very sweet and fascinating collection.
After the jump some boring video of what went on in the book department before the fans were let in and Courtney was just there with us, the press. And an interesting picture of her interesting chin.
