Love Fan Gobsmacked

Who: Erin Morgan

WHEN Newcastle music fan ERIN MORGAN forked out big bucks to see American supergroup HOLE she was hoping at the very least to catch lead singer COURTNEY LOVE'S guitar pick.

Instead the 16-year-old St Francis Xavier High School student caught the eye of the notorious rock star at the BIG DAY OUT last month and received much more than she bargained for.

Responding to Morgan's request to Love from the barricades for a chance to play the star's guitar, Love ordered security guards to allow the teenager onto the stage.

As a finale the musician made a gift of her own signature model Fender Venus guitar to the gobsmacked fan before taking her backstage for a 15-minute chat and signing.
