Courtney Love and Paul McCartney

Courtney Love Slams Paul McCartney Nirvana Performance

Kurt Cobain’s widow, Courtney Love, wasn’t too fond of the Nirvana “reunion” at the 12-12-12 Sandy benefit concert.

During the show, McCartney took the lead for a new song called “Cut Me Some Slack” alongside Pat Smear and Nirvana band members Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. Though the performance received primarily positive reviews, the NY Post reported that Courtney Love was “furious” over the reunion.

She was reportedly “not amused” and said, “Look, if John [Lennon] were alive, it would be cool.” She also took issue with Grohl and Novoselic calling the performance a “Nirvana reunion” because Kurt Cobain was the heart and soul of the popular grunge band.

The report that Love wasn’t happy with the Nirvana “reunion” was seemingly confirmed on a Facebook post to the page “Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge.”

On Wednesday, they posted a link to a story announcing that McCartney would take over as Nirvana frontman for the 12-12-12 benefit concert. As you can see in the screen-cap embedded below, Courtney Love said that she was there and that the performance wasn’t good. Additionally, she said that McCartney should get “earmuffs for th [sic] bassplaying.”

She posted several more rambling, nonsensical comments to the page (some have apparently been deleted) which were compiled by LoudWire, and are posted below the photo below:
