A previously unbroadcast interview with Kurt Cobain suggests the Nirvana frontman was considering quitting his own band and joining Courtney Love’s band Hole. Published for the first time in a special edition of Uncut the interview – conducted by French TV a few months before the singer’s suicide – quotes Cobain as saying: “It might be nice to start playing acoustic guitar and be thought of as a singer and a songwriter, rather than a grunge rocker because then I might be able to take advantage of that when I’m older. I could sit down on a chair and play acoustic guitar like Johnny Cash or something, and it won’t be a big joke.”
Talking about working with Love he adds: “It’s a nice thought. I’d like to, but to tell you the truth, I would rather just quit my band and join Hole, you know – only because when I have played music with them, there’s a level of connection that’s a little bit higher than with anyone else I ever played with. It’s amazing.”
The special edition of Uncut is out tomorrow.
