Courtney Love: 'I Have a Higher Bar Than QOTSA'
Courtney Love recently discussed working on fresh Hole material, taking a bit of a jab at Queens of the Stone Age frontman Josh Homme.

Asked about the writing process by the Quietus, Love noted, "Well, you sit and you write like, Queens of the Stone Age drudge for a month, and it's just not happening, and it's not happening - not that Queens of the Stone Age suck, but people expect a lot more from me.

"Josh Homme can play like, four notes on his bass and people take off their tops, but I have a higher bar for whatever reason," the singer continued. "It has to be just f--king really really good. So, then I started playing with Patty [Schemel] and Melissa [Auf der Maur] and Eric [Erlandson], just to see how that was, if we got anything killer happening."

Asked on whether she'll be bringing any new material, Love said, "Yeah, 'cause 'Wedding Day' [Courtney's new single] will be out by then. It got mastered this weekend. So it should be out any day. Howie Weinberg, who mastered 'Nevermind,' mastered it. I wrote this song after just months and months of trying to write and trying to write, and then this one song just came in twenty minutes. It just came in like a bolt from 18. I wish I had written this in 1990, 1983 even. You know what I mean? It's just that song, it's that good."
