7.3 Did Courtney Love really slap David backstage at the 1994 Reading Festival? (The Wedding Present)

Apparently.

David Gedge: "I was a bit shocked when it happened. But I
think she was a bit inebriated, and it was more playful than
malicious. I was actually quite impressed that she knew my
name. A faint flicker of recognition came across her eyes when
we met, and then I found out that she only knew my name because
she wanted to batter me. She said, 'Steve Albini! Are you a
friend of Steve Albini?' I said, 'Well, he worked for me on
one album.' And then she tried to slap me across the face a
few times. It was quite... surprising. But I imagine she
forgot all about it five seconds, and went on to the next
thing." (Melody Maker, 10Oct94)
