Mark Yarm’s Everybody Loves Our Town blog has up a new blog titled Listicle Without Commentary*: The Year in Billy Corgan’s Disdain for His ’90s Alt-Rock Peers, as Told Through GrungeReport.net Headlines. The story is a list of GrungeReport.net articles where Billy Corgan trashed other 90’s bands this year. Yarm posted the story on the Everybody Loves Our Town Facebook and Courtney Love responded in the comments section:
thank you for the kind comments i am taking this page off my feed ive already gotten in trouble once based on someone telling me false information and loving that i reacted, so im just going to go away from this, half the things mark has you reading of corgans are incendiary and not to defend him too much but your making billy look “crazy” when hes probably just really frustrated he cant sell records.
its tabloid crap i have more dirt on jack white than anyone and im not exploiting it ( besides i like his guitar playing too, billy is a great guitarist i listened to pinwheels off oceania and it started all strun and drang and like it was going somehwere and then it was sort of a bleh ok acoustic song i dont underdstand why he cant just write a great song anymore, i mean not to sound too — arrogant but i can. and i will continue to and not complain about other peoples oldies tours, and i take it back sometimes i do get jealous of dave but its nothing to do with why billy does, its because he gets all the good nirvana kickback and i get the bad, but i get the great fans that are loyal and freaks and homos and freaky gurls and sensitive hetori boys dave gets the jocks so i wonder which kc would prefer, i certainly know how stipe felt when the jocks started liking his band and kurt felt the exact same way, im sure its on record.
