She knew far more about the music business than he did, and Hole’s career was accelerating as quickly as Nirvana’s at the time.

Kurt mentioned the heart-shaped box and thanked Courtney for it.

It touched her that he’d noticed, but soon she went on to other topics, spewing forth a stream-of-consciousness rap that included producers, critics, Sonic Youth, guitar-playing, cough syrup brands, and songwriting, among other brief stops.
