Courtney Love told David Letterman on Tuesday night’s (February 10th) edition of Late Show that she and Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl have buried the hatchet once and for all.

The widow of Kurt Cobain and the one-time Nirvana drummer famously feuded for years after Cobain’s death but embraced each other publicly at the band’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last year.


Love told Letterman that the good will has remained since last April, explaining, “We’re friends again — we text, and we’re cool. I think you just get to an age where, ‘Why are we suing each other? Really?’ It just got stupid. Honestly, me and Dave Grohl, we had some gnarly times over 20 years. And if we can make up, anyone can make up. We’re really cool now.”

Love also discussed the upcoming documentary, Kurt Cobain: Montage Of Heck, which will premiere on HBO on May 4th. She told Letterman, “It’s anguish. It’s very moving. I’ve seen it now three times, and I’m probably not going to see it again. It’s too much. People were in tears.”

She added, “The director, Brett Morgen, did a fantastic job on it. I trusted him completely . . . and gave him the keys to my storage and said ‘tell the truth.'”

Morgen was given complete access to the personal archives of Cobain and his family for the film, which premiered last month at the Sundance Film Festival.

Love is working on a new album and will head out on tour this May with Lana Del Rey.

Grohl and the Foos will hit the road this summer for a massive North American trek starting on July 4th.
