Love’s love note
The note found in the Kurt Cobain’s wallet that pokes fun at his wedding vows with Courtney Love was not written by Cobain, but rather … it was written by Love. That’s according to author Charles Cross. The note surfaced in media reports last week and said something to the affect of loving Love even if she’s a “bitch with zits and siphoning all money for doping and whoring …”. Cross says that he was notified by Love herself that she wrote the note and gave it to Kurt before they got married in 1991. The sarcastic note wasn’t uncommon with the couple, according to Cross.
Love’s dad says she was involved
Meanwhile Courtney Love’s dad, Hank Harrison, suggests his daughter was involved in Cobain’s death. In an interview with RadarOnline.com Harrison says “no doubt she was capable. I can’t prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty.” Harrison has a book out called Love Kills: The Assassination of Kurt Cobain where he is also critical of the Seattle Police Department’s handling of the death scene. Even after another investigation, police determined the death to be suicide.
Gray’s doc acquitted
Acquitted of manslaughter—that’s the verdict handed down to Dr. Danile Baldi, the doctor who oversaw Slipknot bassist Paul Gray’s medication. The Des Moines Register reports that the jury found that prosecutors didn’t prove Baldi was reckless in prescribing drugs to various patients, regardless of whatever addictions they may have had. Gray’s wife, Brenna, testified that Baldi prescribed Xanax to the bassist regardless of his history of problems with the drug. Baldi’s attorneys fired back and said none of the patients had high levels of the drugs Baldi prescribed in their system. Baldi wasn’t facing manslaughter charges for just Gray (who died in 2010), he was also facing charges for over prescribing several other people who overdosed.
Lost then found
They found it! No, not your porn stash … but this was something found in a pawn stash … Zakk Wylde’s guitar! A clerk at a pawn shop up in Chicago though something was different about a guitar he bought for $50. He was right. It turned out to be Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde’s guitar that went missing back in March. The pawn shop, Royal Pawn, was featured in truTV’s show “Hardcore Pawn.” After the guitar was authenticated as Wylde’s axe the shop passed the sellers info on to police but no arrests have been made.
