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.

You are still one big bully. no wonder ur daughter wants nothing with you. miserable excuse of a mom.

I hate having to agree with her. But ,yeah, Kurt was nirvana. If they want to perform new songs together fine, but don't call it a reunion, it can't be. And stay away from playing nirvana songs

Who cares if she's "not amused"? It's not a joke, it's an f'ing BENEFIT and it isn't McCartney's fault that Cobain isn't here to sing along.

Sure    

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.

Shut up idiot, for someone who can't even care for herself and is a drug whore drunk, needs to go back under her rock.. people don't care about you and your statements. No wonder Kurt killed himself. Moron..

The best thing that ever happened to Courtney was Kurt dying. Had he lived I'm positive he would have dumped her within a few years and no one would remember who she was. I think 20 years is plenty long enough to show respect for the loss of Kurt. If they want to get together again let them.

I think its an awful pairing but Kurt is dead Courtney and this is a free country. If Dave and Krist want to have a karaoke concert with Sir Paul its their choice even though I agree its going to be bad.
