Hole frontwoman Courtney Love has revealed that she took to Craigslist to advertise for a new bassist but got only one response. 

The grunge icon told Bust magazine that her attempts to recruit a band to record a new solo album were more difficult than she anticipated. 

“I put an ad on Craigslist that said, ‘Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur.’ I got exactly one response," said Love.

"There’s just not a lot of chick bass players.”

Love's next release will be a solo album, rather than a Hole record

Love also went on to speak about her late husband Kurt Cobain and the Nirvana legacy.

She said: “The Nirvana stuff is fucking cursed in my opinion. Somebody has to guard the gates of this thing. Because you know what would happen? The second I sell (the rights), it becomes a jukebox musical, makes a billion dollars, and you’ve got jazz hands on Broadway. Or he’ll be in Gatorade commercials. I will never sell the fucking stakes I have in it, because no one else will bother protecting him.”
