Last Saturday (Feb. 3) the Red Hot Chili Peppers played an
unannounced gig at the Hollywood Mogul, a small club in Los Angeles. The only
indication that something special was going on was when KROQ announced that
"there's a band playing the Mogul that you should check out." One never knows
how these things get out, but the place was packed with civilians and some of
the more exotic glitterati, like Billy Corgan and his Smashed Pumpkins, and the
glamorous and spectacularly well-groomed Courtney Love, according to one of our
sources. Love was charming to all she met, until she was introduced to A&R man
Guy Oseary, the man responsible for signing Candlebox and Alanis Morissette.
According to one source, Love put her blonde head this close to his and said
"Alanis Morissette sucks." It was that kind of night.
