A preview clip featuring members of Nirvana with St. Vincent at the Rock Hall induction ceremony has arrived ahead of the HBO special this weekend.
Recently, the Seattle Police revealed a note found in Kurt Cobain's wallet at the scene of his death. The sarcastic take on wedding vows raised many questions, including speculation over who actually penned the over 20-year-old note. Now, it's been confirmed by Courtney Love herself that she was the one who put pen to paper.
There have been plenty of rumors, conspiracy theories and accusations over the years, but so far there has been no confirmed ties that Courtney Love had anything to do with Kurt Cobain's death. That hasn't stopped Love's own father, Hank Harrison, from suggesting that his daughter was involved.
It was the hug felt 'round the world. Kurt Cobain's widow, Courtney Love, who had battled with Krist Novoselic and to a greater extent Dave Grohl over how to handle Nirvana's musical legacy over the years, openly embraced both during her speech at the band's Rock Hall and Roll Hall of Fame induction. But even before the public got to see the peaceful public declaration, there was a more private one.
April 10, 2014 was a pinnacle night for rock music. In their first year of eligibility, Nirvana were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame before launching into a unique performance with the surviving Nirvana members jamming classic tracks with rotating female vocalists. It was the first time Nirvana performed their own music since Kurt Cobain's death in 1994, but according to a new interview, it may not be their last.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has inducted Nirvana, and the surviving members of the band marked the occasion by strapping on their instruments and rocking with a contingent of female frontwomen at the induction ceremony in Brooklyn, N.Y. But did Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic taint the history at all by bringing out Joan Jett, Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon, St. Vincent's Annie Clark and Lorde to play with them? Following the Rock Hall ceremony, the surviving members also performed a secret club show with three of the four aforementioned female singers, as well as Dinosaur Jr. frontman J. Mascis and Deer Tick vocalist John McCauley.
