Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love Archive of Photos, Art, and Lyrics. During the final years of his life, Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain struggled with drug addiction and media pressures surrounding him and his wife, Courtney Love. The two were a controversial couple during their time together, with many of Love's harshest critics claiming she was using him to boost her own music career. This small selection of items from the couple's time together includes ink sketches, a three-ring binder containing typed and handwritten lyrics, lyrics written on the pack of an 8.5" x 14" handbill, an invite to Edward Norton's birthday party from an unspecified year, and a couple of dozen color snapshots of Love, Norton, Drew Barrymore, Dave Grohl, and other friends and family. Our authenticator was unable to verify which of the lyrics and sketches were done by Cobain and which were by Love. The items are in overall Very Fine to Excellent condition.
