“Madonna’s interest in me was kind of like Dracula’s interest in his latest victim.”But Courtney, who is nothing if not shrewd, knew that one offer could spur other offers.“From then on, it was ‘Madonna’s Hole,’ ‘Madonna’s Hole.’ Suddenly, we’re just of the bidders.At Hole’s next show, thirteen A&R people were there!The music ranges from almost pop to loud thrashing—the only real unifying link is that most of the bands are on independent labels and appeal to college audiences.“No one can get a seat on a plane to Seattle or Portland now,” says Ed Rosenblatt, president of Geffen Records, Nirvana’s label.

“And there’s a post-Nirvana record-industry perspective. But if you’re out there and trying to sign the next Nirvana, you’re chasing your tail.The game is not finding the next Nirvana, because there won’t be a next Nirvana.”It is somehow appropriate that Madonna’s new company, Maverick, was the first to be interested in signing Courtney Love to a major record deal.Besides, she had another ace to play: by late ‘91 she was dating Kurt Cobain.When Hole went to England, she wasn’t shy about either Madonna’s interest or her new boyfriend.In mid-1991, Guy Oseary, an enthusiastic nineteen-year-old who was working for Madonna and her manager, Freddy De Mann, at their then unnamed company, told his bosses about Hole.He also contacted Courtney’s lawyer, Rosemary Carroll, and Hole-mania began.She and Hole were just signed to a million-dollar record deal; she is married to Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of Nirvana, and within the realm of the alternative-music scene, Courtney is now regarded as a train-wreck personality: she may be awful, but you can’t take your eyes off her.
