Grunge Pioneers Redd Kross reveal Courtney Love banned them from supporting Nirvana

Grunge Pioneers Redd Kross reveal Courtney Love banned them from supporting Nirvana
Redd Kross influenced the sound of grunge, particularly the genre’s most classic proponent: Nirvana. In fact at one point the band shared a manager, but this didn’t guarantee they were on good terms, and to promote their latest LP Redd Kross have revealed why they never supported Nirvana on tours when the latter were famous.
 
Two words: grunge Yoko.
 
Yes, Courtney Love barred it. Here’s the explanation: “We were never able to open for Nirvana,” they told The Guardian.“We shared the same manager. Flash forward to Nirvana being the biggest thing in the world – OK, can we please go on tour with your band? We were told we couldn’t, because Courtney Love said we were mean to her when she was fat… We used to crank call Courtney. But not about being fat. We didn’t even know she was fat.”
 
Okay this is swiftly becoming non PC. They also said: “When she met Kurt Cobain we realised: Oh man, that Courtney chick – we have to be friends with her now. But she had her revenge. She blacklisted us from Nirvana tours.”
