Courtney Love gets back to acting on ‘Sons Of Anarchy’

Courtney Love will be getting back to acting with an upcoming role on season 7 of 'Sons of Anarchy's final season on FX.

Love will make her dramatic TV acting debut in episode 4, playing Ms. Harrison, a straight-shooting preschool teacher of Jax’s eldest son, Abel. Love’s character will take a special interest in Abel, which may cause friction with the boy’s mother Wendy (played by new series regular Drea de Matteo).

Love's past credits inclue Alex Cox's 1986 classic "Sid And Nancy", followed by appearances in 1996's "Basquiat" and "Feeling Minnesota". Her much-celebrated turn as the tragic Althea Flynt in the 1996 film "The People Vs. Larry Flynt" was her most critically acclaimed role, garnering praise and nominations from many different film critics. She has also appeared in 1999's "200 Cigarettes", 1999's "Man On The Moon" (which reunited her with "Larry Flynt" director Milos Forman), 2000's "Beat", 2001's "Julie Johnson", and 2002's "Trapped."

Courtney will join another musician in the 'Anarchy' cast, as Marilyn Manson will also appear in Season 7 as a prison power player who has dealings with Jax.

12.12.12. Hurricane Sandy benefit concert recap and highlights (video)


12.12.12. Hurricane Sandy benefit concert recap and highlights (video)

The 12.12.12 Hurricane Sandy relief concert took place last night at Madison Square Garden in New York City, and it truly was an epic event. It all kicked off a set by Bruce Springsteen anbd the E Street Band, who was joined by Jon Bon Jovi for 'Born To Run', that was followed by a Roger Waters set that included Eddie Vedder of Pearl Jam helping out on 'Comforably Numb'. Adam Sandler (with Paul Shaffer) did a fantastic "New Yorker" version of Leonard Cohen's 'Hallelujah', including lyrics that were both comedic and passionate.

Jon Bon Jovi and the band returned to the stage for their own set, and Bruce Springsteen returned the favor on a version of 'Who Says You Can't Go Home.' Sets by the great Eric Clapton, The Who, The Rolling Stones, Billy Joel, Kanye West and Alice Keys followed and it all wrapped up with Paul McCartney perfoming Beatles and Wings classics as well as being joined by Dave Grohl, Krist Noveselic and Pat Smear on a new track that we now know will be a part of the upcoming 'Sound City' movie soundtrack.

You can still help at:
Proceeds from the show will be distributed through the Robin Hood Foundation. More than $30 million was raised through ticket sales alone.

Paul McCartney played a set that included the Beatles' "Helter Skelter," followed by Wings' "Let Me Roll It," "Nineteen Hundred And Eighty Five," and the newer song "My Valentine" off of his 2012 release 'Kisses on the Bottom.' He also performed "Blackbird," "I've Got A Feeling," and "Live And Let Die," the latter two coming after his appearance with the former Nirvana crew.

Kurt Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, told TMZ that she was "not amused" after hearing the news. Love stated, "Look, if John [Lennon] were alive, it would be cool." Love also told TMZ that she was upset with Novoselic and Grohl for calling the 12-12-12 performance “a Nirvana reunion,” because she says that Cobain was the heart and soul of the band.

Paul McCartney with Dave Grohl, Krist Noveselic and Pat Smear 'Cut Me Some Slack' will live on beyond the benefit as the Foo Fighters tweeted after the show that it was the first song off of the upcoming ‘Sound City‘ documentary soundtrack. I would have liked to have seen the guys on an actual Nirvana tune, and was hoping for some kind of all-star jam as the close of the concert, but that didn't happen. The concert was well past curfew, so I understand, but it did come to kind of an abrupt end. I am not complaining though, because it is all about the cause, and I thanks all the artists for coming together to contribute to rebuilding the damage caused to the people affected by Hurricane Sandy. We wish them all the best this holiday season.

Rare home video of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love posted (video)

Rare home video of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love posted (video)

Kurt Cobain of Nirvana, wife Courtney Love and their infant daughter Frances Bean Cobain are featured in a video clip that was originally part of the Patty Schemel documentary, 'Hit So Hard,' which has been showing at film festivals around the country. In the clip, Cobain and Love sing an unreleased track called 'Stinking of You.'

Cobain plays with his baby daughter Frances Bean throughout the video, much of which looks to be shot in their apartment.

It's looks as though Courtney Love is keeping her promise for now after recently apologizing to her daughter via twitter after previously ranting on her account that she'd heard from her daughter's roommate and a driver that ex-Nirvana drummer and Foo Fighter Dave Grohl had hit on and possibly slept with Frances.

Francis Bean Cobain then responded by releasing this statement to the media: "While I'm generally silent on the affairs of my biological mother, her recent tirade has taken a gross turn. I have never been approached by Dave Grohl in more than a platonic way. I'm in a monogamous relationship and very happy," she said before adding, "Twitter should ban my mother." Twitter hasn't banned Courtney, and it seems she's good for a bit of controversy every few months. I'm guesssing something pops up (or out) with her by the end of the summer.

‘Sunset Strip The Movie’ featuring Ozzy, Alice Cooper, Slash, Tommy Lee and more to debut at SXSW

Ozzy Osbourne, Slash, Alice Cooper, Doors guitarist Robby Krieger, Mötley Crüe drummer Tommy Lee, Billy Corgan of Smashing Pumpkins, Pamela DesBarres, Courtney Love and many more rockers and actors are all featured in a new documentary called 'Sunset Strip' that premieres at the SXSW festival in Austin, Texas on Friday (Mar. 16) at the Paramount Theatre.

Playboy founder Hugh Hefner, actors Peter Fonda, Keanu Reeves, Johnny Depp, Mickey Rourke and Sharon Stone are others featured in the new documentary. Hans Fjellestad directed the film profiling the history of the famous mile-and-a-half of Sunset Boulevard in Southern California, and includes interviews with musicians and actors who frequented it. Guns N’ Roses drummer Matt Sorum is one of the film’s producers.

“This is where it all started, you know,” says Osbourne, who is featured along with Hugh Hefner, Billy Corgan and Tommy Lee among others in the trailer for the movie below. The stretch of road between Hollywood and Beverly Hills is called both "sacred" and "a place where people come for refuge." "It is truly a mix of light and dark, sunshine and noir, that is uniquely L.A.," the description reads at the film’s website. Artists gathered to create, while preferred vices were just a doorway down.
