Courtney Love Posts Long Rant About Nirvana Reunion From 12-12-12 Concert
Courtney Love made an appearance on the Facebook page of Mark Yarm’s book Everbody Loves This Town: An Oral History Of Grunge last night to slam the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief reunion of the three surviving members of Nirvana (Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic and Pat Smear), led by Paul McCartney.
This was after a report on TMZ in which she said she was not amused with McCartney’s involvement and added: “Look, if John [Lennon] were alive it would be cool.“
You can find all of her comments below. She said she intended to remove the comments but they are still there as of this morning. She then returned to explain herself and respond to people who replied. She explained her Lennon statement when she said: “Yes we did get into Paul and John fights – I’m a Paul person (‘Helter Skelter’)”. She also clarified her stance on the ‘reunion’. “If they don’t do songs they didn’t write (Nirvana songs they don’t own) I don’t care.“
After someone said the song “kicked ass”, she replied: “Scott, really? I will repeat, with Krist’s bass playing? Let’s be clear he’s not exactly known for its brilliance.“
