In Case You Were Wondering: Courtney Love Is Still Batshit Crazy

November 16th, 2011 · Comments Off on In Case You Were Wondering: Courtney Love Is Still Batshit Crazy

Courtney Love recently stormed off stage in Brazil because a fan held up a photograph of her deceased husband, Kurt Cobain. As with most actions by this woman, her ramblings on stage seemed inexplicable at the time. Her nonsensical rant also included digs at former Nirvana drummer and current Foo Fighters leader Dave Grohl. In […]

September 7th, 2011 · Comments Off on Fender Unveils Kurt Cobain Guitar

With the pending 20th anniversary of Nirvana’s Nevermind, Fender has decided to cash in on the festivities by releasing an exact replica of Kurt Cobain’s 1965 Fender Jaguar. The replica comes complete with Cobain’s scuff marks and wear and tear. Besides the creepy factor, what surprises me most is that this hasn’t happened already. If […]

Own weird piece of Kurt Cobain’s private life

It’s weird suddenly reading all these articles about Kurt Cobain that ask, rhetorically, if anyone still listens to Nirvana.
