Professional widow Courtney Love, PO’d at Activision for how Kurt Cobain of Nirvana is presented in Guitar Hero 5, says Cobain probably would have found his game appearance amusing. But since he’s dead she gets to do all the suin’.
Telling the UK’s NME magazine, Love characteristically spewed filth-flarn-flarn-filth when passing along this update.
What pisses me off the most about it is I think Kurt would be fine with having five Kurt Cobains singing the (Spice Girls) song Wannabe, like, ‘Tell me what you want, what you really really want.’ … I think he’d find that really funny.
But at the same time it’s gross what they did. Gwen [Stefani, suing Activsion for how No Doubt appears in Band Hero]started the lawsuit. I have really good lawyers now and will join that lawsuit. There was this grey area and they fucked the lot of us. They didn’t fuck Jack White, but they fucked Gwen, fucked Johnny Cash and fucked Kurt … It’s just gross. This is the rock ‘n’ roll business, this is what people do. They are sleazy; they do sleazy things.
I’m not sure this kind of comment harms her case but it probably doesn’t buy her sympathy points. Her lawyer probably should tell her to just STFU about Guitar Hero for the time being, but I doubt that advice would be followed.
