Love was born Courtney Michelle Harrison on July 9, 1964, in San Francisco, California to psychotherapist Linda Carroll and Hank Harrison, publisher and brief manager of the Grateful Dead.

Love's parents divorced in 1969 and her father's custody was withdrawn after her mother alleged that he had fed LSD to Love. Her mother moved the family to Marcola, Oregon, where they lived on a commune.
