Love and Grohl making up [May. 6th, 2006|09:34 pm]
Talk to me the ultimate Nirvana forum.

violetnancyboy
Long-term foes Courtney Love and Dave Grohl are close to patching up their problems and have booked a lunch together to "bury the hatchet." The pair have battled in and out of court over Nirvana's back catalogue since Love's ex-husband Kurt Cobain killed himself in 1994 and Love inherited his 98 per cent share of publishing rights. But Love - who recently sold a 25 per cent stake - insists she and the Foo Fighters front man Grohl are on speaking terms again. Love says, "I think Dave and I are getting close to burying the hatchet. We have a lunch scheduled so that'll be nice, but, erm, businesswise we don't have anything to do with each other."

hi, my name is lithium and i was searching for some good nirvana communities and came across this one which looks amazing. i've been listening to Nirvana since i was about five years old due to the fact that my brother always had it playing. i regret that when i started listening to them, even tho it was at such a young age, Kurt had already passed away. anyway, i love Nirvana and Kurt Cobain, as you can tell from my lj. i look forward to getting to know more fans.

Rolling Stone: Courtney Love sells 25% of the Nirvana catalog. [Apr. 6th, 2006|10:20 pm]
Talk to me the ultimate Nirvana forum.

Rolling Stone is reporting that Courtney has sold 25 per cent of the catalog.

Courtney Sells Nirvana Rights Share
Kurt Cobain's widow partners with ex-Virgin Records COO/GM to manage catalog
ONLINE EXCLUSIVE

When Nirvana singer and lead songwriter Kurt Cobain died in 1994, his widow, rocker Courtney Love, became the primary benefactor of his estate, which includes more than ninety-eight percent of the band's publishing rights. Band members Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl were left with part of the remainder. Now Love tells Rolling Stone that she has finally sold twenty-five percent of her share of Nirvana's sought-after publishing catalog -- to Larry Mestel of Primary Wave Music Publishing, former COO/GM of Virgin Records.

"I took on a strategic partner, Larry Mestel, to help me co-manage the estate because it was overwhelming," Love explains. "The affairs of Nirvana are so massive and so huge, and they've all fallen on my lap. I own almost all of [the publishing], . . . and it proved to be too much for me. I needed a partner to take Kurt Cobain's songs and bring them into the future and into the next generation. And this guy's the guy to do it."

Mestel says his three-month-old company, Primary Wave, is thrilled to have bought into an American musical legacy. "The appeal to me is that [Kurt was] one of the most important songwriters of his time," Mestel says. "Kurt was an incredible songwriter, and Courtney is an exceptionally talented person herself. So I felt the combination of Courtney's creativity and the things I can add can really help in creating more value for these copyrights."

Though Love and Mestel declined to comment on specifics, a source close to the deal tells Rolling Stone that Mestel has likely paid in excess of $50 million for the rights.

Exactly what the partnership will mean for the life of Nirvana's music -- including the Nineties hits "Come As You Are" and "All Apologies" -- is unclear. Thus far, the tracks have been notably absent from corporate ad campaigns and blockbuster action-movie soundtracks. The new partners are already eager to curb speculation that any of the generation-defining songs might end up in, say, a deodorant ad.

"We're going to remain very tasteful, and we're going to [retain] the spirit of Nirvana and take Nirvana places it's never been before," says Love. "My goal is to keep the music very true to who the songwriter was and what his passions and tastes would be," Mestel adds, "and to work through Courtney to figure out exactly the best way to go about exposing his music to a new youth culture to a new generation."

In other news, Love says she has entered into another partnership -- a musical one, with New York-based electronic artist Moby. According to Love, Moby has agreed to co-produce the follow-up to her 2004 effort, America's Sweetheart, which Linda Perry is also at work on. The two met up when Love was in New York last week, and ended up spending a night out with Coldplay, Arctic Monkeys and Michael Stipe.

"A long time ago, Moby was Christian, and I had this fantasy I was Mary Magdalene and he was Jesus. I've always had a little crush on him," says Love. "And I trust him. I'll talk all sort of shit, and he'll keep trying to focus me back on the music."

I can't believe it's been 12 years and I still remember the day it happened. This is the worst time of the year. Everyone just celebrate Kurt. Post lyrics, pictures, links, everything. He deserves that.

# Kurt Lives

Every once in a while something comes along and changes the musical world away from its conventions. Sometimes these things are a flash in the pan while other times the music world embraces this new voice and change rushes over in an enormous wave. In 1991 this kind of thing happened.
Nirvana released it's second album, "Nevermind", and they were met with a frenzied seemingly overnight success that no one could have possibly expected. With crossover potential that stretched over to embrace the ears of people who might only listen to bands and songs from certain genres, they busted the gates wide open for a flood of new sounds from grunge, alternative, punk, and even metal bands everywhere. Often compared to the frenzy that was the British invasion, Nirvana lead this brigade with Nevermind's opening track, "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Unmistakable from its opening guitar riff, this song heralded a new sound and became anthemic to a whole generation.
While Kurt Cobain may no longer be part of the corporeal world, his words, voice, music, and attitude can still be felt today thanks to the full albums, videos, and unheard of amount of bootlegs left behind. Sure, there are still some songs here and there that diehard Nirvana fans may have not been able to get in its finest form of clarity, and we are still waiting for an official DVD release that catalogs all their music videos, but the one thing that many fans have been asking for and have never received in ANY form, official or not, is an action figure. Many other musical icons have been brought to plastic and NECA is proud to be able to bring that same respect and admiration to Kurt Cobain's memory with our figure.
Based on his appearance in the video for "Smells Like Teen Spirit" this Kurt Cobain Action figure includes his guitar, rendered in painstaking detail, and part of the gymnasium floor as his base. Be on the lookout for Kurt to stand with his guitar again on store shelves late in June. Here is our first look at our "Smells Like Teen Spirit" Kurt Cobain.

Grohl to be a dad/ [Jan. 19th, 2006|01:12 pm]

Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl is to become a dad for the first time after news that his TV producer wife is expecting a child this spring.

Rumours the Best Of You hitmaker and spouse Jordyn Blum were expecting a baby have been circulating for months, but bandmate Taylor Hawkins unwittingly confirmed speculation when he told MTV.com about the group's touring schedule.

He said: "We're going to be touring Europe in January and February, but we've got be home by March, because Dave and his wife are having a baby.

"But I probably wasn't supposed to tell you that."

Grohl joins a growing list of rocker dads-to-be. In September Queens Of The Stone Age frontman Josh Homme and Distillers singer Brody Dalle confirmed they are expecting a child, while news broke two months later that White Stripes star Jack White and supermodel wife Karen Elson expecting too.
