"SHE'S A ROTTEN PERSON": While I agree with John Strausbaugh that Rolling Stone has been gradually sinking into irrelevance for past two decades, the magazine comes up with an outstanding cover story this week on the battle over the legacy of Nirvana, with Kurt Cobain's widow Courtney Love on one side and the surviving band members on the other. The article goes to great pains to be impartial, but there's no hiding that Love is the villain of the saga. Indeed, she reneged on a deal to split all future Nirvana revenues three ways with Cobain and Nirvana members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, and is thus holding up the release of a planned Nirvana boxset which would feature several new songs, including the long-mythologized "You Know You're Right." Love, in attempting to serve her own twisted purposes, is not only screwing over the Nirvana members, but depriving legions of fans from hearing lost recordings of the best band of the 1990s. The RS article isn't online yet, but check out this Entertainment Weekly article from March for further chronicles of both the depravity and insanity of Ms. Love.
