Courtney Love’s Father Claims New Evidence Proves She Was Involved In Kurt Cobain’s Death

Courtney Love’s father Hank Harrison has told Radar Online that he believes Courtney Love was involved with Kurt Cobain’s death/theorized murder.

“No doubt she was capable,” Harrison says. “I can’t prove she pulled the trigger, but I can prove her involvement to a high degree of certainty.”

“If you read the true meaning of this small note, and place it in conjunction with the rest of the evidence, anyone with even half a wit will see that something dire and awful took place,” Harrison alleges.

“Nobody, except me, asked the obvious question: ‘Why weren’t [the new photos] developed 20 years ago?’” he adds. “They weren’t developed because the police had already decided it was a suicide and didn’t need any more evidence.”

Rage Against The Machine Drummer Says They Have Played Their Final Show

Rage Against The Machine drummer Brad Wilk says the band played their last show ever at the L.A. Rising Festival on July 30, 2011 at the Los Angeles Coliseum. Wilk told The Pulse of Radio that the band is unlikely to ever play together again.

“As far as I know, we played our last show in 2011 at the Coliseum, and if that was our last show, that’s a good way to go out,” Wilk said.  “I had sort of put in my head that that band is over in order for me to just move on with my life, to be honest with you, so that’s kind of where it lies. The Coliseum – awesome way to go out.”

Guitarist Tom Morello told Rolling Stone in a 2012 interview, “Whether or not we ever play music again in any capacity is unknown. I’m grateful for the music we played together.”

Rage Against The Machine reunited for live shows in 2010 & 2011 but have not released any new material since 2000’s covers album Renegades.

 

William DuVall Discusses Seeing Alice In Chains Live In 1996

In a new interview with IslandPacket.com, William DuVall revealed that the only time he saw Alice In Chains before joining the band was one of their final performances with Layne Staley in 1996, “I saw [Alice In Chains and KISS] at Freedom Hall in Louisville.”

“It actually was [my first time seeing Alice In Chains]. I don’t know how that happened because I’d seen Soundgarden a few times. I saw Pearl Jam and I saw Nirvana. I saw Nirvana right before they broke big. Somehow Alice had escaped me. I mean, they hadn’t toured quite as much as some other bands, for one thing.”

DuVall also revealed that he has quite a bit of input on setlists: “A lot of times I’m writing the set list. There are times when one of us will take it upon himself to write the set list, and there might be some disagreements from some of the others. If we’re on a tour, especially if it’s our own tour, and we’re getting to play 80 to 90 minutes a night, then everything any of us will want to play will get played at some time. There’s a couple things that got brought out that hardly ever got played. I was the one who pushed for playing “Rotten Apple.” Especially since I’m guitar playing, we’re able to open up things. We broke out “A Little Bitter” in Australia and Japan. That hadn’t been played since ’96.”

Billy Corgan: ‘I Never Forgot How To Be Popular’

Billy Corgan posted the following blog on SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com:

The distinction of any endeavour is effort or luck. Great things of course require a bit of both.

And so it goes in any Casa de Rock: how hard vs fortune? Blessings of happenstance against the ability to hear.

With our 9 in play, we are counting on fortune to shine. The songs are good. Songs from a ghost perhaps. But I never forgot how to be popular. I just -at times- didn’t care.

So what is left when having played Christ, Anti-Christ, Child, and Goat?

Christ at it’s root means LOVE btw. So you can say I played lover, or sinner, or fool, or cow if that makes one comfortable.

What’s left is to rock: in glory-a excelcius. And we shall.

A review today of all the elements revealed we are indeed ready.

Billy Corgan Gives His ‘Secret Mission’ A New Nickname

Billy Corgan posted the following blog today on SmashingPumpkinsNexus.com:

Oh lawdy mama, heaven’s knocking on heaven’s door, you know, somewhere over that rainbow next to Ritchie’s house…

Woke up today, my friends, and started with dear ‘ol ANAISE. After much hem-hawing, decided to trust my gut that some sort of modulation was necessary. Not just because the chorus is too high (it is, but so are others), but because when it shifts down the statement within seems to take on a elegiac stature (the elegy the point, it seems).

So here’s a little inside baseball: in SP world we call a chord by it’s assumed name even if the guitar is tuned to a different base key. I.E. should a guitar be tuned to the Mellon Collie key of E flat, we still call an E flat major chord an E. This makes the final result on ANAISE by progression: E minor, D minor, E minor, G major, D major, E minor, D minor, E minor, A minor; despite the guitar being down a half step. Either way you can see (if you play music) that the harmonic progression is quite unusual, and might explain why there’s been so much head-scratching over it.

At the end of the day, we listened and all agreed that it’s pretty unique, both for SP history and as a composition, and in the best sense of the word it doesn’t feel strange like good rock and roll should.

ANAISE, ANAISE, ANAISE, oh how I wanted to be rid of you.

Have one demo to go vocally speaking, and then we’ll review all 9 before I depart for a continuance of Secret Mission Project (SMP). Expect some announcement over that next week.
