Courtney Love: "Rock and roll is pretty much close to dead"


Courtney Love was recently interviewed by Dazed Digital, you can read some excerpts below.


About the death of Rock and Roll, she said: "Rock and roll is pretty much close to dead, unless there’s some great savior art direction unless there’s a new Oasis or Nirvana and people buy into that and it gets as big as Kanye West is. It’s got to be innovative, it’s got to touch that many lives and kids, millennials, have all been raised, with very few exceptions, on rap and so I don’t know if they’d recognised it even if they heard it."

She added: "When we were growing up they’d say ‘Oh, Dylan couldn’t get signed today’, 20 years ago people were saying that, so I don’t know, I don’t know if it could get recognised today. Do you think it could get recognised? I don’t know… A lot of millennials don’t know who Patti Smith is, it’s crazy! It’s weird."
