Courtney Love Slams Surviving Nirvana Members’ ’12-12-12′ Performance With Paul McCartney

Last night at the ’12-12-12′ Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, Paul McCartney performed an original song with the three surviving members of Nirvana. The musical collective wrote the song ‘Cut Me Some Slack’ during an impromptu jam session for Dave Grohl‘s upcoming ‘Sound City Studios’ documentary, later debuting the track live at the televised benefit. Although the song proved to be impressive to say the least, Courtney Love went public beforehand to say that she was against the idea.

After learning that McCartney and Nirvana would be collaborating for the benefit, Love told TMZ that she was “not amused” by Paul McCartney’s involvement, although she added, “Look, if John [Lennon] were alive it would be cool.”

Shortly after the performance of ‘Cut Me Some Slack,’ Courtney Love posted a long, scattered and nonsensical series of comments on the Facebook page for ‘Everybody Loves Our Town: An Oral History of Grunge,’ which had just posted about the aforementioned TMZ article. Below is a compilation of her comments:

yall got good copy now ill leave it up a few then ill delete,

 

Although Courtney Love’s last line promises that she would delete the posts, they still remain in the comments section as of this posting.

A few hours later, Love posted some more odd comments, focused on her and Kurt Cobain arguing John Lennon vs. Paul McCartney, and ultimately saying the performance didn’t bother her since they ended up not playing a Nirvana song:

yes we did get into paul and john fights- im a paul person (helter skelter) if they dont do songs they didnt write (nirvana songs they dont own) i dont care.

Right before the performance, Love commented to a person named Paul:

yeah paul, better get earmuffs for the bassplaying is all

And right after the performance, she wrote:

there it was. uh it was bad.

Love continued to trash the bass playing of Krist Novoselic when she responded to a Facebook user named Scott, who posted that he enjoyed the performance:

scott really? i will repeat, with krists bass playing? lets be clear hes not exactly known for its brilliance.

Well, there you go. If you were wondering what Courtney Love thought of the performance, now you sort of have an idea. If you don’t care about what she thinks, we owe you five minutes of your life back.
