Courtney Love Dave Grohl Frances Bean Cobain Krist Novoselic Kurt Cobain Nirvana

Love and Nirvana lawsuit

13 Dec, 2002

Courtney Love and surviving members of Nirvana battle for the rights to the Nirvana legacy. The complaint by Love and Frances Cobain depicts Nirvana as a one-man show, reducing Novoselic and Grohl to little more than sidemen. Love also insists that Cobain decided to break up Nirvana several months before his death. Grohl and Novoselic’s legal papers refer to Love as:

a complete alien to Nirvana’s music and success [who is trying to] prohibit the remaining members of Nirvana from any commercial exploitation of the music they created.

Both Novoselic and Grohl have refrained from granting interviews on the subject of Kurt’s life out of respect for Cobain and his family, whereas Love

offered up many interviews on the subject of Kurt’s life and death which contain glaring inaccuracies
