If people were interested in her life (if i was married) and she was famous..yes.

It's not like we got to read all the things that was written in those, we just got a sneak peek and all the secrets are still unpublished. Would be stupid to assume anything else.

I'm not gonna sit around and waste my precious divine energy trying to explain and be ashamed of things you think are wrong with me.

People likw Erlandson, Schemel and True spend their lives feasting on the remains of Kurt Cobain, just to pay the bills. In all my years of reading about Kurt, I never recall seeing anything quotes from him regarding his closeness with Erlandson.

And Eric did not come out smelling like a rose in Love & Death. a very creepy and druggy man. don't believe he wrote certain riffs on Live Through This either. talent that strong doesn't just fizzle out...

this book is pathetic, and I hope it fails miserably.
What a ridiculous comment. Firstly Patty Schemel's doco is about Hole and HER life, Kurt just happened to be there at the time and she lived with him and Courtney and Frances. Eric I think probably should've named this something else but I will still buy the normal edition.
To say Eric didn't write certain riffs on Live Through This is also such a 90s myth. None of those riffs sound like Nirvana they are an evolution from pretty on the inside and other early Hole. Obviously you've just a read a book like Love and Death and not actually studied the people you are criticizing. So what Kurt wasn't quoted on Eric? He wasn't quoted on many people but that certainly does not mean they weren't around and were friends of Kurts.

I just think that Kurt would hate so much, and bitterly disgusted.

I think writing the book is fine, but the name is what bothers me. You know. It's like... too cheap. Even if he didn't mean it that way, it comes off that way.

As a side note, I was watching an interview with courtney from like 2010 and she said that she can't play with Eric because he hasn't played guitar since the day hole broke up in 2002. Is that true :| ?

Not true at all. He played with Vincent Gallo and at many buddhist benefits

Has anyone read it? I think it's weird and I probably won't.
