Courtney Love’s Sound Engineer Gets Revenge After Not Being Paid
Just a word of advice; if you have somebody who's job it is to make you sound good, make sure they get paid. Courtney Love is learning this the hard way, now that her isolated vocals and guitar audio from 2010 has been released by a sound engineer that never got paid.
The guy who uploaded the audio is a sound engineer named J.M. Ladd, here's what he has to say about the video:
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. EDIT: There seems to be some confusion about where/what the video footage is. It's a video of the same performance. It's just not my video. I did not shoot this video. I did not edit this video together. I have merely taken my audio recording of the same performance and synced it as best I could. Their edit is sloppy which is why it drifts in and out of sync. It's not about the video, anyway. It's there for context.
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.
