Kurt Cobain Documentary Shows New Footage Of 'Funny' 'Romantic' Nirvana Frontman: VIDEO

Kurt Cobain

Released in January, Kurt Cobain: Montage of Heck is the first authorized documentary about the Nirvana frontman who took his own life in April 1994, reports the BBC.

With Cobain’s daughter Frances Bean Cobain acting as executive producer, the documentary - which contains footage which has never been seen before - started in 2007 when the late musician's wife Courtney Love approached Oscar-nominated filmmaker Brett Morgen.

Love is said to have provided an archive that included home videos, audio tracks, audio diaries and around 4,000 pages of Cobain’s journals.

Morgen said:

"People didn't realize how very funny Kurt Cobain was, or how romantic he was, or what a doting father he was. Ultimately the mythology of the man is that he was in pursuit of fame, and then he didn't want fame anymore. I hope this film shatters that illusion.

“I think Kurt, the child of a divorce, was in pursuit of family his whole life, and when that became defiled that's what ultimately led him to take his own life. But I didn't make this film for fans. I made it for Frances."

Courtney Love: 'Drag Queens Taught Me How To Be A Rock Star'


Occasional lady lover and gay marriage supporter Courtney Love — who has expressed love for her gay fans in the past  — gave props to drag queens in a recent interview with Gay Times magazine:

“When I was a kid I was definitely what you would call a fag hag because that's how I learned to dress and be extrovert and walk into a room… I would say my freshman year of learning how to be a rock star was just hanging around drag queens…

[When asked why she thinks she’s regarded as a gay icon, she added,] “I think it's surviving. It has to be. Surviving, and also the ability to do drag, to clean up nice. I might look like shit this morning, but you know, I clean up nice.”

Love expressed appreciation for her gay fans in an August 2013 Vanity Fair interview and also appeared in the documentary about Hole’s lesbian drummer, Hit So Hard.
