In 1991, Nirvana and Hole were on tour in the U.K. and Kurt Cobain’s flirtation with Courtney Love was ongoing but musician Mary Lou Lord believed she was Kurt’s girlfriend. When Lord visited the U.K., Cobain couldn’t bring himself to tell her in person so when Lord switched on Channel 4 to watch Nirvana perform on the U.K. show “The Word”, she heard Kurt announce,
“I just want everyone in this room to know that Courtney Love, the lead singer of the sensational pop group Hole, is the best fuck in the world.”
I guess Kurt didn’t think much of Mary Lou Lord…Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love sent this fax in 1993 as a response to a profile that appeared in a magazine about Mary Lou Lord and her brief but intense relationship with Kurt around the time that Nevermind came out.
But Everett True’s Nirvana: The Biography confirmed that for a time Kurt was telling people how in love he was with Mary Lou, and even dreaming about moving to Boston to be with her.
