COURTNEY ON KURT – WORLD EXCLUSIVE

The star talks to NME about her husband's diaries, her own memories of live with the Nirvana star and her future in music...

COURTNEY LOVE has given a world exclusive interview to NME about the legacy of her late husband KURT COBAIN, following the publication of extracts from the NIRVANA songwriter’s diaries.

Courtney spoke to NME following publication of ‘Heavier Than Heaven’, a new biography of Cobain which includes previously unpublished entries from his diaries. Courtney granted the biographer, Charles R Cross, access to Kurt’s diaries most of which she has in her possession.

With the tenth anniversary of Nirvana‘s landmark album ‘Nevermind’ due later this month, Courtney agreed to talk to NME about her reasons for allowing Cross access to the diaries, her own memories of the period and her future in music. The full interview will appear in next week’s edition of NME (September 11).

For the full story, see this week’s NME, which is published in London today (September 4), and nationwide tomorrow (5).
