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.

Francis Bean actually owns the rights to Kurts likeness and Nirvana related things. Courtney is just a washed up, broke, crack addicted has been.
"Frances has taken over control of the publicity rights for the Nirvana icon’s name, likeness and appearance."
So to the people who say "Do your research" I did...did you?

Saw the prformance last night. It was only the one song Paul and the remaining members of Nirvana had wrote in a jam and it was awesome. Sorry. It was also for charity because of the thousands of people washed out of their homes by Sandy. ANY complaints about raising money to help those people should hang their head in shame

I think they should name the band something Nirvana related. That way all this fuss Courtney Love has been making will just make her look more like an idiot. I think "Nevermind" would be a good one.

Nirvana wasn't just Kurt, hello?? Without Dave (who has gone on to have a hell of a successful career, and is a well-respected musician, singer and songwriter in his own right) and Krist, it would've been Kurt, the One Man Band Jam... Courtney just rode his coattails and collected off of him. Anyone think Hole would've been more than a smear at the Roxy if it hadn't been for Kurt? This is just another example of this washed-up, used-up, waste of space trying to stay relevant. Go back to rehab, Courtney. I'm sure you'll be relevant there.
