A fan recently asked former Nirvana manager Danny Goldberg about the conspiracy theory that Courtney Love faked Kurt Cobain’s suicide note during a ‘Serving the Servant’ book signing in Los Angeles. Goldberg debunked the conspiracy theory with his remarks. Alternative Nation transcribed some of Goldberg’s comments.
Goldberg answered a question about his ex-wife, Rosemary’s Carroll’s reaction to Kurt Cobain’s death. According to Wikipedia, “Grant spoke to Cobain’s attorney, Rosemary Carroll, at her office on April 13, 1994. He said she pressed him to investigate Cobain’s death, and that Cobain was not suicidal. Carroll also claims that Cobain had asked her to draw up a will excluding Love because he was planning to file for divorce.
Grant said this was the motive for Cobain’s death. Carroll also provided Grant with a handwriting practice note that she found in Love’s backpack that was left at her home. It has been suggested that the handwriting on this practice note is markedly similar to the handwriting found on the last four lines of Cobain’s suicide note.”
Goldberg hit back, “I attribute that to Tom Grant being a liar, who taped her without her knowing it and then edited the tape in a way to alter her feelings. She has never, ever said anything publicly to agree with him, but he took these edited tapes, put them on the internet and people believe that’s her view. However, she’s never said that I interviewed her for the book and it’s part of Tom Grant’s crazy conspiracy theory to – at a time of tremendous grief after somebody we loved very much, on this, she was in a position of having to be able to deal with things I didn’t have deal with legally.
When asked by Courtney to meet with this guy, he taped all these conversations, took a few things out of context and then put them on the internet to make it seem like she agreed with the theory that in my opinion, she does not agree. She certainly never said a single word publicly to agree with that.”
