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.

She should be flattered that such a phenomenal legendary artist would even bother to sing a Nirvana song. She should be bowing down to Paul McCartney and thank him for honoring Nirvana and the memory of her husband. She just looks for publicity any time an opportunity presents itself hoping that one day she will be in the limelight again instead she's just getting people nauseated.

Being married to a band member makes you qualified to comment on Nirvana banging Tiger makes you qualified to comment on golf. Stick to your expertise, drugs.

Courtney Love is clearly just offended (as always) at not being included. But what business would she even have on the same stage with Grohl and Novoselic, not to mention the great and legendary Paul McCartney, who was one of a select handful of original inventors of the art form we now know as rock 'n roll! (and BTW Kurt Cobain, like most intelligent rock musicians, was known to have worshiped the Beatles for being perhaps the greatest of his early musical influences). You will also notice that Kurt never invited Courtney to play onstage with Nirvana (slapping a tambourine or whatever she can still remember). And it seems fairly certain that Courtney had Cobain killed before he had a chance to divorce her, escape to Athens, GA (? home of REM) with his new woman (who may have been Hole's doomed former bassist, another Courtney victim?), and totally end Courtney's gravy train ride on his and Nirvana's genius (and this was definitely Kurt Cobain's plan in his final days, and there's not too much doubt about it -- certainly the divorce part is correct!!).

Courtney may be evil, but she is not dumb. She was capable of anything to prevent the loss of her very good life on Kurt's dime.
