Courtney Love has her daughter on speed dial.

The Hole rocker has a turbulent relationship with Frances Bean Cobain - her 20-year-old daughter with the late Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain - but Courtney insists they have started to work out their differences and now communicate regularly.

She said: "I'm talking to her a lot which is great. It's good to have her on my speed dial."

Courtney, 49, is currently writing her memoirs and although she has had a number of high profile flings - including those with Steve Coogan, Edward Norton and Billy Coogan - she says the book will be tame.

She said: "Lots of shenanigans with fun movie stars. Really, it's a memoir without much sex in it. You'd think I was the Virgin Mary reading it."

While Kurt committed suicide in 1994, Courtney believes he would still be a successful recording artist if he was alive today.

She added to People magazine: "He was a melodic genius and he would still be in the game."
