Courtney Sells Nirvana Shares

Courtney Love, former wife of the late Kurt Cobain, has sold 25% of Nirvana’s publishing catalogue to Larry Mestel, who is involved with Primary Wave Music Publishing.

She claimed that she couldn’t have all of the publishing catalogue because it was getting too much and so she sold the share to Mestel to help take the songs “into the future and into the next generation”.

Early meetings with Bono came to nothing, and not Love and her new partner must decide how they take the catalogue to “places its never been before”.
