Love Declares War Over Cobain Character

An ongoing Twitter tirade on an account identified with Courtney Love is being directed against the company that distributes Guitar Hero.  Posts blast former Nirvana drummer Dave Grohl too, saying "...if theres a hell hes going. im not" (sic).  Love was on record as having worked with the company in developing the Cobain character.  A Rolling Stone story quoted an Activision VP as saying Love had a lot of input and had been "...great to work with".  Posts claim the character is vile and imply that a lawsuit is in the works. Grohl says he had nothing to do with the game's use of Cobain's likeness and objects to the fact the character can be used on songs other than the two Nirvana songs approved for GH5.
