This is what the person who posted this says,

"Published on Sep 8, 2014 Hole performing Celebrity Skin live at Don Hill's in NYC, Sept. 11, 2010.

I was hired through the venue to record this show (including many others throughout that week) and was then left standing with a hard drive and an invoice no one seemed to want. Four years later I still have the files and not really any idea what to do with them. But I like to share. So here we are.

What you are hearing are just Courtney's isolated vocal and guitar mics (with the obvious bleed from the rest of the band). I've muted everything else. This video I've borrowed from elsewhere on youtube and in trying to sync up my own audio I realized they were a little sloppy with their edit. But you get the idea.

To address the most obvious, inevitable question that I will be asked...this is not fake. Whether you think she's the worst or this just makes her all the more "punk rock" is for you to decide. I'm merely presenting the facts as they are. Make of them what you will."

i went to go see Courtney Love last year. she barely played the guitar. its hard singing and playing at the same time, yet i think she gave up. i want to be her butler someday. i wish she practiced a bit more maybe do an acoustic set to get better

THE GREATEST GUITARIST OF OUR TIME

vocals are okay considering the chopped-off nose

"punk" she is not--falls squarely into the dominant ideology. more of a hard rock cafe type.

everyone here knows how much I loathecourtney love BUT lets be honest, I came up in the crust/chaos punk scene where punk is about sabotaging the world instead of pretending everything is looking great (sort of like what tupac meant when he said, "act up if you feel me") and by that definition I cant think of a single human being who is sincerely more punk than courtney love.. I think its why kurt married her!

She's so punk it's a wonder why she isn't in the next Katy Perry video! [edited for timeliness]

You must spread some Reputation around before giving it to Savage Clone again.

You've got to rep yourself before being allowed to rep Rob or whatever...
The video's a great find.
Her face doesn't look like anything I associated her with. Total blank.

I ain't a fan at all.
She was fast at name dropping and journalists might have liked that a lot and gone to her for some bashing.
That is a bit dull.

I use might and a bit a lot. Retrieve it all and you have the idea.

She'll end up playing with 3 more guitarists to cover it all.

FYI, the uploader updated the text and added a link to the same song, but with the live mix. And then you don't hear anything of the false guitar.
And he aslso added a link to the full vid in the bad mix just in case you want it.

never liked hole and never will

did went to a concert once where the guitarist messed up so much that after a minute or so the mixer stepped up and turned his volume way way down ;-)
Won't say what the band was, because I do love them, and he was just a temporary replacement (or so I understood). But I did share the recording ...
and please don't cheat and look at my last.fm stats what's now playing ...

So I finally had time to watch the original Youtube clip in question..

whoa and wow.. I mean, we all knew Courtney was a musical parasite who stole all her guitar work from Kurt and Billy Corgan but shit, its blatantly obvious watching this video...

I mean, I didn't really have any respect for her before, but now I think I have negative net respect for her as a musician and somehow I think she owes me some respect for having listened to Live Through This enthusiastically for two decades now
