Throughout the 12-12-12 Concert for Sandy Relief at New York City's Madison Square Garden, a monumental bulk of talent occupied the grand stage.

Add in former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic to the mix and things take a turn for the euphoric.
So, quick recap: Courtney Love had an onstage breakdown during a Hole performance in Sao Paulo, Brazil, over the weekend, screaming about Foo Fighters / former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl and how he's stealing money from her daughter, Frances Bean Cobain.
