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.

I look forward to seeing it, big fan of Paul and a huge fan or Nirvana. With that said I TOTALLY understand Courtney's side. Kurt started the band, Kurt named the band, Kurt wrote EVERY SINGLE song himself on all 3 albums with the exception of 1 or 2 which he co wrote with the others. But all their hits, Kurt wrote himself as well as 99% of their music. So how can they have a "reunion" without THE man who created Nirvana? Not to mention Kurt didn't like Paul. He was a fan of John Lennon and claimed Paul "embarrassed him"

Hey Courtney - a lot of Nirvana fans aren't too happy with you either. This would be a good time to show some class and stfu.

About 25 years ago, someone asked George Harrison about the possibility of a Beatles reunion - his reply? "As long as John Lennon is remains dead, there will be no Beatles reunion".
.
How is this any different? They are not going to play under the band name "Nirvana", and tell the truth, they probably wouldn't want to. Let's face it, Grohl's better known for the Foo Fighters, and McCartney? Well, he's just going to play with two guys who used to be in a band together.

Courtney just shut it. You are worthless, skanktastic slag. You are even worse in concert. Please do not ever speak again, just take Kobain's earnings and cook them up in your crack pipe.

Well first of all, this is one odd pairing of musicians. This is like Willie Nelson doing a duet with Metallica. And yes, Courtney Love is right. They can't call this a Nirvana reunion since Kurt Cobain is not involved.

I hate Courtney Love but she has a point. It's not a reunion it's more like a tribute. They should've gotten someone that sounded more like Kurt. Paul Mccartney just doesn't fit grunge music.
