Kurt Cobain’s ex Courtey Love has said that she will stage a Kurt Cobain musical, provided that she can get the right people involved.
Speaking to NME she has spoken about Kurt’s upcoming anniversary and plans for his legacy which includes a biopic, play and documentary.
“After being swarmed by tons of Nirvana fanmail and social media posts pushing for a musical to become a reality, both Frances (Bean Cobain, Kurt and Courtney’s daughter) and I have thought long and hard and agreed that if we can reach up to the highest shelf and select a team of the greatest and most respected writers, producers and directors, then a Broadway musical is very likely to happen”.
“There would have to be a story, and a great story, one that hasn’t been told before. I would devote countless hours with an A-team to create a project that reflects Kurt in the most respectful but honest way possible, so that his story, his music and his legacy can be resurrected on stage for not only the world to see, but more importantly for our daughter to see. I know her father’s spirit will be on that stage, and sitting in that theatre with her will be the most emotional experience of our lives”.
This is the year that marks the 20th anniversary of Kurt’s untimely death which will various events being held in his honour including the town of Hoquiam in Washington, where Cobain lived briefly, holding it’s first ever Nirvana day.
His home town of Aberdeen recently hosted it’s first ever Kurt Cobain day in his honour also.
Moreover Nirvana are due to be inducted into the Rock and Roll hall of fame where Michael Stipe will be inducting the band next week.
A fan is also looking to purchase Cobain’s childhood home through crowd funding with the hopes of turning it into a museum.
