Courtney Love recently touched on the matter of Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder's 1993 appearance on the prestigious Time magazine cover, saying that Kurt Cobain was the one who really wanted to make it on the front page.
"Everyone thinks Kurt wasn't ambitious, but he really wanted that Time cover," Love kicked off with a chuckle. "The whole fight was over a Time magazine cover. Eddie's manager was more savvy than Kurt's manager and said that Eddie would show up and Eddie had no intention of showing up. Then Kurt's manager was like, 'Kurt won't show up.'
"So they put Vedder on the cover of Time," Courtney continued. "But then like, in Rio, they all had a really good time together. There's this great footage of Kurt and Eddie slow-dancing to Eric Clapton's 'Heaven' song that I pushed Kurt into. And they don't have me pushing Kurt, which is like, really lame, 'cause I pushed Kurt towards Vedder."
During the rest of the clip, Love discussed rock feuds, adding, "In terms of feuds in rock - are there any other ones? Billy Corgan and everyone. I don't think Trent [Reznor] likes me still. The only feud there is is Dave Grohl not liking me. I think that's the last that's left. But I said that before."
The last lines might be interpreted as yet another peace offer to Grohl on Courtney's behalf. Whether or not the two will bury the hatchet any time soon yet remains to be seen.
