“i think Kurt would despise this game alone let alone this avatar.”
So said Courtney Love on how she thought Kurt Cobain may perceive his digital likeness in Guitar Hero 5. The above claim was tweeted by Love back in September 2009, but now things are different, it seems. In an interview with the NME, Love says her late husband would find his appearance in Guitar Hero 5 “really funny.”
“What pisses me off the most about it is I think Kurt would be fine with having five Kurt Cobains singing the (Spice Girls) song Wannabe, like, ‘Tell me what you want, what you really really want,’ Love told the music mag. “I think he’d find that really funny.”
Oh great, so you’re dropping that lawsuit against Activision then, Courtney? Oh …
“But at the same time it’s gross what they did. Gwen [Stefani – another stroppy star suing Activision for how her band No Doubt appears in Band Hero] started the lawsuit. I have really good lawyers now and will join that lawsuit.”
So in conclusion, Courtney Love:
1. Thinks Kurt would despise Guitar Hero 5.
2. Thinks Kurt would find Guitar Hero 5 really funny.
3. Is still suing Activision, despite signing away Cobain’s likeness on a contract.
4. Has a coke mountain that’s looking a little low.
Great, glad we got that all sorted.
