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.

Does Queen reunite and do gigs even though Freddie Mercury is dead? Yes.
I don't see a problem with this. I loved Nirvana and was a fan of Cobain but dude blew his brains out. 2/3's of the band is still alive so if they want to reunite and maybe cover a few songs with one of the greatest performing artist of our time then so be it.
Plenty of bands have performed with other people standing in for members that have died. This isn't a big deal at all. She's probably just pissed she's not making any money off of it.

Courtney Love is the hottest mess in the cosmos. I hope she shouts enough obscenities to be escourted out of the building.

Courtney is always bent out of shape if anyone is making a penny but her, even if it's a benefit for a charity. And of course she always wants more headlines any way she can get them. Paul isn't Kurt and Kurt wasn't Paul. They are just doing a benefit, not putting out an album and doing a 100 city tour!

It's Dave    

It would be cool for Paul to sing if John were alive, but since John is not alive it is not cool for Paul to sing? Put the crack pipe down and step away, Courtney.

Do I think sir Paul can pull off that awesome rasp that Kurt had? I'm not sure, but I would be SOO flattered that Paul's standing in for him! It's unfortunate that she can't get behind the charity and be flattered that people still love Nirvana so much!
