The Woman Who Sold The Rights

Geoff Trainor

All I can say is, it's about time. Courtney Love, widow of Nirvana's Kurt Cobain and ex-Hole frontwoman, has recently said that she plans to sell a share of her rights to Nirvana's back catalogue. Does this mean that the rights might get to where (this humble mocker thinks) they belong, into the hands of band members Grohl and Novoselic? Sorry, to get you excited, but it isn't likely.

Love told NME,

"I have decided that I need some co-management and a strategic partner (to help me]) as it's such a huge responsibility. This is the right thing to do for my family...whoever I do this deal with, I really have to like."

I really have to like? Well, that takes Grohl out of the picture. The two have been feuding over the rights ever since Cobain's death in 1994. Both appearing on radio talks shows like Howard Stern and speaking openly about their dislike for one another.

It does seem like a step in the right direction. Still, what are the motives behind this sudden change oh heart? I guess Love's debut solo adventure, America's Sweetheart, didn't do as well as she had hoped.

The March 12th edition of The Sunday Mirror reports that she's thinking of selling "25 per cent of the catalogue for quite a lot of money."

Personally, Courtney love is high on my list of people that the world would be better left without. I agree with you, she has no rights to the music anyways, they should have been her daughters at the very least. She's a bad bad woman.

Later my friends told me that if I want to play the game better I should go to earn the Perfect World Gold, so I was very quickly risen to thirty levels, and then I started to play the game alone.I go to Buy Perfect World Gold to treat myself in this game. However she was also very sad when I was hurt, she was sorry about this to me and I did not complain her at last. I was very happy and we went to earn the Perfect World Silver to equip us to become strong. Today I play the game again and I can get a lot of Perfect World money for her, I take her to upgrade and then add her experience. I have a lot of cheap Perfect World Gold and I want to give her in the game, i can have a lot of pw gold if my skills of playing the game well.
