Courtney Love Continues to Trash Dave Grohl

Courtney Love doesn’t seemed ashamed about her onstage meltdown a few days ago in Brazil. The Hole frontwoman was still fuming about former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl after their set at the SWU Festival in San Paulo. Love was interviewed backstage and said Grohl doesn’t deserve any Nirvana money, despite being in the band.

NME reports that while Love was explaining why the photo of Kurt Cobain upset her so much during Hole’s performance, the singer decided to slam Grohl even further.

“I wasn’t in Nirvana,” she said. “However, I do own Nirvana, with my daughter, and because of tax laws I have to give money to his sister, Kim Cobain, and [Kurt’s mother] Wendy Cobain.”

“Dave makes $5 million a show, he doesn’t need the money – so why the f___ does he have a Nirvana Inc. credit card and I don’t? And last week, he bought an Aston Martin on it.”

While I can’t confirm Love’s statement as facts concerning what Grohl makes a show and his supposed Aston Martin purchase, I assume he gets a Nirvana Inc. credit card because he was, you know, in the band.

Love wasn’t finished there.  She continued by saying Kim Cobain was homeless and took shelter under the same bridge that Cobain sung about in “Something In The Way” on 1991’s Nevermind. The widow of Kurt also claims that Wendy Cobain doesn’t have a front door in the winter and her boiler is broken.

As for Grohl’s contribution to Nirvana’s legacy?  Apparently that is overrated as well.

“He didn’t write one f____ note,” states Love. “He didn’t even write the drum riff for ‘Smells Like Teen Spirit’. Kurt owns 100% of that publishing.”

However, Love wants to be known as the self-less hero.

“Forget me, I make tons of money – my daughter and Kim Cobain, Wendy Cobain and [Kurt’s half-sister] Brianne Cobain is what I care about.”

Watch the whole rant below. Do you agree with Courtney about Grohl’s contribution, or lack of, to Nirvana’s legacy?
