good god no!
I'll never do anything so silly again.
Everett? calling Dave Grohl a 'Fucking corporate cock-sucking memory-destroying fret-wanking MTV-supporting fame-chasing money-grabbing grave-turning publicity-loving vacuous spoiled jaded cunting rock whore.' - bad form, really. i think the abusive heathens of DiS are starting to rub off on you
Interesting that he doesn't quote any of his own insane twitter ramblings in the piece
although it was written before someone pointed out to him that Grohl doesn't own any of the rights to Cobain's image
"This is a statement regarding Nirvana, Guitar Hero and the likeness of the late Kurt Cobain.
We want people to know that we are dismayed and very disappointed in the way a facsimile of Kurt is used in the Guitar Hero game. The name and likeness of Kurt Cobain are the sole property of his estate - we have no control whatsoever in that area.
While we were aware of Kurt's image being used with two Nirvana songs, we didn't know players have the ability to unlock the character. This feature allows the character to be used with any kind of song the player wants. We urge Activision to do the right thing in "re-locking" Kurt's character so that this won't continue in the future.
It's hard to watch an image of Kurt pantomiming other artists' music alongside cartoon characters. Kurt Cobain wrote songs that hold a lot of meaning to people all over the world. We feel he deserves better.
Krist Novoselic and Dave Grohl"
it's just too good to be true....:DDD
now i am done ranting, you assholes, listento the foo foghters and jist know that despite all his moneygrohl has foinanced his porperties KC
presumably it would be less offensive? How can we make an objective judgement as to which bands we object to Kurt's likeness covering? Just a thought....
...that he would not find this humorous?
he was the dictionary definition of an indie snob.
...then he deserved his twat of a wife.
