Courtney Love

"Not Amused"

by Sir Paul & Nirvana

EXCLUSIVE

1212_courtney_love_paul-mccartney_gettyWhen Nirvana reunites tonight in NYC -- with Sir Paul McCartney replacing Kurt Cobain on vocals -- Courtney Love won't be cheering ... she'll be yelling obscenities, because she's pissed about the gig.

Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic are playing at the 12-12-12 benefit concert at Madison Square Garden -- their first show together in 20 years -- but Cobain's widow tells TMZ she is "not amused" about Paul's involvement.

Courtney is clearly more of a Lennon fan, than McCartney because she added ... "Look, if John were alive it would be cool."

Love is also upset at Krist and Dave for calling tonight's show a Nirvana reunion because she says Kurt was the heart and soul of the legendary band.

For the record ... Sir Paul and the guys will be playing a brand new song they wrote together. It's unclear if they will cover classic Nirvana songs.

Courtney Love isn't even close to the calibre of Paul McCartney

I'm sorry. Does she play any instrument besides the needle and crack pipe? I don't recall her being a member of Nirvana. So her opinion matters none. She's always got an opinion on anything remotely related to Nirvana

Kurt was the heart of Nirvana, but he's gone. This, hopefully, will be a tribute to him.

Tell this bitch to shut it already. Everytime nirvanas name comes up..she bitches and moans. Your not in Nirvana and never will be...bitch. Nirvana was one of the greatest bands ever so get over it. Even Frances Bean wants nothing to do with this train wreck. I would kill to be at this show.

I have to agree with Courtney on this one. This is not a Nirvana reunion and should not be billed as one. As for Sir Paul being involved, so be it.


I find it ironic that she prefers John over Paul to do the assist seeing that John was assassinated and Kurt simply sucked on the business side of a shotgun.

Love is the Yoko Ono of grunge.

Courtney is just pissed because she is the reason why Kurt Cobain is dead.

Courtney: STOP SMOKING AND SHOOTING THAT HEROIN so you can actually GET BACK INTO REALITY AND REALIZE you are nothing but a good 'ole slut.

No disrespect to Sir Paul, but couldn't they find someone a little more 'Nirvana-like'? On the other hand, it's a benefit show, so just 'Let It Be' Courtney!

Without Kurt Cobain, this is as much a reunion of Nirvana as Paul and Ringo getting together without John and George and claiming it to be a reunion of the Beatles.

Would it be better if they called it "Nirvana without Kurt but with Paul?"

I think no one will forget Kurt or John, this is a bunch of talented guys getting together for a gig, for a good cause and mutual enjoyment of most involved. They should just have Courtney joined them, maybe she would not raise a ruckus if they involved her.

She was married to the singer of Nirvana, not in the band so stfu. Nobody cares if you like Paul or not. You should be happy that they are still promoting the band.
