Hole's Live Through This at 25: Looking at Courtney Love's seminal album
Every Friday, the q This panel looks at the biggest stories in music news. Today, CBC arts reporter Lisa Christiansen and freelance music journalist Stuart Berman join host Tom Power to talk about the 25th anniversary of Hole's seminal album Live Through This.
The album marked a huge moment in grunge music and was perhaps Courtney Love's biggest accomplishment. A week before it was released, Love's husband and the lead singer of Nirvana, Kurt Cobain, died by suicide.
There were rumours that Love had written Live Through This about him. A couple months later, Hole's bassist, Kristen Pfaff, died.
On this week's q This panel, Christiansen and Berman explore the controversy and tragedy tangled up in the release of Live Through This and discuss the album's greater impact.
