Courtney & Russell Crowe at the Vanity Fair party in 2000.
“Hold On To Me” was written after a poetry-fuelled night with Russell Crowe after the Golden Globes in 2002.
Above, Courtney & Russell at a Vanity Fair party in 2001.
“I didn’t have anybody to write about. I wanted something that was fresh, passionate, lusty, loving, and all night long he held me and I cried. I wrote poetry everywhere - on his shirt, on the wall, everywhere. And I just cried and cried because I had not met another person who had eyes like mine, ever. And so I had this idea and I had the chorus and the next day I went into a studio and recorded it, and the lyrics came to me. “
“Russell is a really interesting and dark guy. Even just holding his hand I get shivers. He goes through hell. But I don’t know if he’s seen as many dead bodies as I have.”
Jocoy explains, “I like to photograph people who do things. Creative people are the best. They are special people. They have special gifts and I find them the most interesting.”
The above photo was taken by Jim Jocoy. Courtney Love performs at the grand opening of Chrome Hearts accessories store at the Body English nightclub on November 4, 2004 in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Courtney on the set of the Doll Parts video. October 1994.
Doll Parts was directed by Sam Bayer, who also directed the video for Smells Like Teen Spirit.
Sam on Courtney: I worked with Courtney six months after Kurt committed suicide, and that was a very heavy experience. We cast a little boy to play a young Kurt Cobain. Just knowing he was dead, and his daughter was there. It was very sobering and intense.
Courtney photographed by Kevin Cummins, 1994.
Kevin on Courtney: Yeah, I liked her a lot. Very complex. She was very happy to have her picture taken as well. We got on well, and we got a lot of pictures in a short burst. I arranged to meet her at 4pm and it was 2am when she eventually turned up.
