SONG SALE £70M FOR COURTNEY

ROCK widow Courtney Love will net £70million by selling her late husband Kurt Cobain's songs.

The actress and rock singer is selling a quarter of the Nirvana frontman's back catalogue to disgraced US lifestyle guru Martha Stewart.

Released from jail this year after five months for insider trading, Stewart wants the songs as an investment.

A friend said: "It's an astonishing deal. It sorts out Courtney financially."

Cobain and Courtney, 41, wed in 1992. They had a daughter Frances Bean, now 11, before he killed himself with a gun in April 1994, aged 27.

Cobain rose to fame with songs like Smells Like Teen Spirit and Come As You Are. The album Nevermind sold over 10 million copies.

WTF?! Martha Stewart is going to own a quarter of his back catalouge?

The world really is coming to an end!

Kurt must be turning over in his grave!

Now there is a headline I never expected to read...

Ooh and buster00, I have always used a combination of elbow grease and bleach followed by an industrial strength pressure washer...


*edit* I just realized 'Bleach' tied it all back in to Nirvana. Damn I'm good...

This reads like something in The Onion. What's next? The Sex Pistols, GG Allin, and Black Flag's catalogues are bought by Disney and turned into amusement park rides? :shock:

IPAMPILASH

I'm gonna let you in on a little secret. Soak a dishcloth in a little white wine vinegar, and rub onto the stain in a circular motion. This will deal with those stubborn brain and bone fragments in no time at all!

Maybe Martha Stewart will publish the blood-and-brains cleaning recipe as an insert with the next Nirvana album.

This means Martha will release a brand new box set, inspired by the pacific Northwest locales that infused Nirvana's art with guignol and pathos.

<i>"The set is made up of 3 picture boxes I constructed from paper mache created with water from an Oregon river. On box 1 I'm going to silk screen the Nirvana logo in a dark red onto a comfy plaid flannel wrap that will enclose it. Box 2 will be a torn cashmere sweater, and box 3 will be a t-shirt stained with vomit. On top I'll wrap actual pine tree clippings from Washington State. Then I'll tie the package with Doc Marten bootstrings. The overall effect will be quite striking."</i>

allow me to second the IPAMPILASH! nice one bc1970!

so i guess this means that Courtney won't have to worry about where she's going to get money for heroin, oxycontin, meth and plastic surgery.

seriously, how much do you think she spent on the plastic surgery? have you ever seen any olde pics of her? she was a fuckin' cow! then she got pretty hot there for awhile. ah, the joys of surgery. how punk!

Anyone notice that the story wasn't picked up by any major news sources (as well as the link no longer working)?

How long before one of the big songs shows up in a commercial? "Heart-Shaped Box" for Valentine's Day chocolates?

Wow... starting at the bottom of this thread and moving upwards, it looks like the normal crew on board.

But then you get the Ghosts Of The Zone Past.... and the Zoners that dropped out shortly after The Purge..... it's like a creepy graveyard.

Nice thread dig, Maui!!
