Kurt would have enjoyed singing Spice Girls in Guitar Hero – Courtney Love
Kurt Cobain would have enjoyed seeing his avatar singing the Spice Girls in Guitar Hero, according his widow Courtney Love – who is currently taking legal action again Activision for an unauthorised use of Cobain’s image in the game.
It is the latest twist in an already messy legal dispute. Activision are adamant that Love had been very cooperative during the development stage, even supplying pictures and videos to aid the creative process. Love has angrily refuted these claims stating that there was never any intention to approve the avatar.
The Hole singer told the NME:
“What p**ses me off the most about it is I think Kurt would be fine with having five Kurt Cobains singing the [Spice Girls] song Wannabe, like, ‘Tell me what you want, what you really really want.’… I think he’d find that really funny.”
Despite this revelation, Love has reaffirmed her position in the row by claiming that she is still fully committed to taking legal action against Activation – following in the lead of singer Gwen Stefani, who is suing Activision over image rights.
“But at the same time it’s gross what they did. Gwen started the lawsuit. I have really good lawyers now and will join that lawsuit. There was this grey area and they f**ked the lot of us. They didn’t f**k Jack White, but they f**ked Gwen, f**ked Johnny Cash and f**ked Kurt… It’s just gross. This is the rock ‘n’ roll business, this is what people do. They are sleazy; they do sleazy things.”
