    As a female bass player, I’d be leery of answering a Craigslist specifically asking for “female” bass player., thinking there were ulterior motives in play. Maybe if was phrased as “all woman / female band seeking bass player. I would just be cautious of why my sex was a primary concern rather than my bass playing.

    And to be honest, while she’s made some great music in the past, Courtney is not exactly the most stable human being on the planet and working with her would be a challenge.

    In the article, she says she posted an ad along the lines of “Band in the style of Hole looking for bassist in the style of Melissa Auf der Maur.” Without seeing the full ad or other details, I’m guessing she only posted in her local Craigslist, and didn’t make it clear that the bassist would be working with the real Courtney Love. It’s too bad she didn’t just make an announcement on her website or through social media. I’m sure many talented female bassists would have been willing to take a chance, even with CL’s issues and “degree of difficulty,” just to have the experience.
