In response to Courtney Love’s protests that she had nothing to do with the likeness of her late husband, Kurt Cobain, being used to sing Bon Jovi songs in Guitar Hero 5 and subsequent lawsuit threats in regards to that matter, a statement has been released by Guitar Hero manufacturers Activision in concert with Nirvana’s Dave Grohl and Krist Novoselic. What does the statement sound like? A denial, a denial, a denial, of course.
“Guitar Hero secured the necessary licensing rights from the Cobain estate in a written agreement signed by Courtney Love to use Kurt Cobain’s likeness as a fully playable character in Guitar Hero® 5.”
And it goes on to add:
Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl, the two surviving members of Nirvana, have no say whatsoever in the usage of Kurt Cobain’s likeness.
Oh right, Everett True forgot to call out Novoselic in his unhinged ranting after finding the trailer online yesterday! Huh. I wonder why?
