‘Live Through This’: Not a Hole lotta Kurt

Courtney Love denies Kurt Cobainwrote 'Live Through This' and slams the surviving ex-members...

Courtney Love has attacked Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for failing to support her over rumours that Kurt Cobain wrote substantial sections of 1994’s Hole album ‘Live Through This ‘ . The album was released within weeks of his suicide in April 1994.

In an interview for The Observer, Love says: “All this time I have never addressed this. But here I am finally saying for the very first time that Kurt did not [write] ‘Live Through This ‘ I mean for fuck’s sake, his skills were much better than mine at the time – the songs would have been much better. That’s the first thing.”

Courtney Love rails against ex- Nirvana members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic for staying quiet on the issue. “I was like: ‘Why don’t you stick up for me?’ and they’re like ‘We never get asked'” says Courtney Love . “I’m like: Why don’t you offer the fucking information?”


In the interview Love said she “didn’t give a shit” about Nick Broomfield‘s savage criticisms in his documentary ‘Kurt and Courtney’ and that if Kurt Cobain had lived she would have left him if he was still on heroin.
