‘Nirvana Day’ declared in Hoquiam

Hoquiam, Washington, a town four miles from Cobain’s home declares April 10, 2014, “Nirvana Day”. Cobain, was born and raised in the nearby city of Aberdeen, and lived in Hoquiam for a brief period of time. Hoquiam Mayor Jack Durney said:

They bring great honor…to our entire community. And I think that it’s good Kurt Cobain lived in Hoquiam for a little while, but he and Krist Novoselic are part of our community, and I think it’s good to honor our sons and their great accomplishments.

Love and Grohl reconciliation

140410-galleryimg-otrc-rock-hall-induction-nirvana-induction-coutrney-love-2On the night of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony, Love publicly embraces Grohl in a hug. In a later interview with Pitchfork, Love says:

On my way to the bathroom, I saw Grohl, and Grohl saw me, and he came up to me first – which really pissed me off because I was going to go up to him first. I wanted to beat him to the punch. I was like, ‘All right, no matter what happens, we’re not going to be b**ches.’ That was my attitude going in, and obviously his. Not much else needs to be said. We just both knew it was time to let it go and we were ready to do it.

Love and Nirvana lawsuit

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
