The wife of the late Kurt Cobain is warning of some awkward moments when Nirvana is inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame this April. Courtney Love appeared on Access Hollywood where she was asked about her relationship with Nirvana drummer and now rock icon Dave Grohl. Love said that they will all be sitting at the same table and that there may be a chance for some resolution in the future, but that’s doubtful. Love recently began a new web series where she straight out said that she and Grohl don’t get along. In the same Access Hollywood interview, Love was asked about her relationship with daughter Francis Bean Cobain. Love said there’s strife because lawyers are attracted to Francis Bean’s trust fund. Are you sure it’s not because you’re bat s**t crazy?
New Newsted video
Newsted has a new video out for the tune “… As the Crow Flies.” The video mixes a live performance with front man Jason Newsted walking down a dark street singing. The tune is from the former Metallica bassists’ debut album Heavy Metal Music. The band is currently preparing an overseas tour of Australia and a date in Singapore.
Tribbet out of Hellyeah
The band used to be made up of several members from Mudvayne, but now it’s only got Chad. Hellyeah have announced they’ve parted ways with founding guitarist Greg Tribbet. They’ve also parted ways with bassist Bob “Zilla” Kakaha. As for why the band dropped Tribbet and Kakaha, there’s only brief mention on the comments section of the band’s Facebook page where it says “don’t ASSUME anything! The reasons for this parting of ways was for the better good. When you hear the new record you’ll understand.” It’s unclear if the lineup change took place before or after the new album was recorded. As for that new album, it is expected to drop in stores June 10th and will be titled Blood for Blood.
