Courtney Love ready to sell Nirvana songs
Courtney Love is considering a $162 million offer for the rights to Nirvana's music.
The Hole singer - the widow of the grunge group's late frontman Kurt Cobain - has reportedly been offered the staggering sum by Evergreen Capital for her 75 per cent stake in the End of Music catalogue she inherited when the 'Heart Shaped Box' musician committed suicide in 1994.
A source told the New York Daily News newspaper: "Courtney thinks the catalogue comes with too many memories. It's haunted."
However, the 'Celebrity Skin' singer is holding out for a bigger offer, with rival bidders expected to come in to try and purchase the material.
It is believed that Oaktree Capital's Bruce Karsh will make an offer, after paying a reputed $50 million for 25 per cent of the catalogue in 2007.
Courtney - who has a 17-year-old daughter Frances Bean with Kurt - recently admitted she is still angry at Kurt for "abandoning" his family by killing himself.
She said: "I'm so sick of my name and his name - I am not his spokesperson on Earth! I don't know what he'd like now, he could be into society girls, he could be into fat girls, he could be homosexual. We don't know, he died at 27.
"My guitarist Micko said once, 'He was so cool,' and I almost killed him. He wasn't cool because he f***ing abandoned us. What he did to the family isn't cool."Posted on 24 May 2010 16:30 to category : Music News
